I am glad to see that the Elf is behaving himself and has even picked up a nice new hobby / interest that is reading books now instead of causing all sorts of mischief to scare the Kiddies straight before Christmas. This is a cute little guy all dressed up in his red sparkle suit that almost looks like Santas. There is a lot of detail into creating this so I see why it is an intermediate pattern. Thanks for sharing.

Like most amigurumi dolls, this pattern has a lot of small pieces that are worked up separately and sewn together. I do like that the head and body are one piece. I tend to have problems sewing necks and heads to bodies, so I am thankful for this design detail. The author provides plenty of photos illustrating the individual pieces as well as how to assemble the project. This is always appreciated!

Much more fun than just going out and buying one! This elf is soft and cuddly and kids will love him. The sparkly yarn for his suit gives him a little pizzazz. I think I will make one and jazz him up with some little jingle bells around his hat. And being made of stuffing he will be easy to pose for fun 'tricks' .
