 Santa And Elf Pillow 
Crochet Pattern 
By Sara Sach of  Posh Pooch Designs

The Santa And Elf Pillow is an easy Crochet Pattern
 and is lots of fun to stitch up.
You stitch up a Santa Square and a Elf Square.
Then, we stitch them together so that one side is Santa Claus,
 And one side is a Christmas Elf.
We Stitch them together with a snow white shell
 trim for a fun Holiday touch.

The  12 Inch Squares For The Pillow. 

I designed the Pillow using Bulky (5) yarns for a 
chunky fun look, and it will stitch up quickly. 
I chose to stitch it up with an K / 6.5 mm crochet hook. 
This will keep the stitches close, so no holes.
I also decided to use a pillow form I purchased, 
but you can use your choice of stuffing. 

I Just know you will enjoy stitching Up the 
Santa And Elf Pillow 
to add to Your Christmas decorations.

The Pillow is Stitched in 2 Steps or Parts
Step1 - The Santa and Elf Squares
Step 2 - Stitching, Stuffing and Adding the Shell Trim
