Want to make an amigurumi gift for the holidays, but you can’t find something winter themed that you actually like? Or maybe your loved one wants a plush dragon for Christmas, but you want to add something extra to make it a little more festive?

Making any amigurumi project into a perfect holiday gift is as simple as adding a festive hat or scarf to bring out the Christmas time in any crochet plushy.

I’ve created two simple patterns for you — a simple scarf and an adorable Santa hat with a permanent flop.

Each pattern is written so you can adjust the size of the hat or scarf to fit your amigurumi, no matter how big or small.
