Santa Claus Cutlery Crochet Cozy

It’s almost mid December and it doesn’t look or feel like Christmas. Outside the weather is mild and a bit more like Vancouver with cloudy days. Indoors, Jason and I decided against putting up a tree this year because we’ll be spending the holidays with the in-laws. Basically, our abode does not have a cheery, Christmas vibe going on. Oh! Except for the poinsettia I brought home from work, so at least there’s that. Before we leave for Christmas I’d like to have a small pre-Christmas dinner and I thought it might be nice to focus on dinner decor. The idea for this crochet Santa Claus cutlery crochet cozy came after I was browsing Amazon for coloring books (who else likes to color??). I saw these cutlery holders and knew a crochet version needed to happen. And that was pretty much all the motivation I needed to decorate the place.

Stitch Guide

Ch –chain

Sc – single crochet

Hdc – half double crochet

Dec – decrease (sc2tog/hdc2tog)

Notes: It’s a good idea to make arms first for easier joining later. Project is worked in rounds. Slip stitch to first stitch, turn at end of each round. Colour changes are made in the last 2 loops of previous stitch. Unless otherwise stated, starting Ch1 does not count as stitch and first stitch is made in same space as slip stitch.

Alternatively you can crochet the torso and sew the arms after instead of joining in Round 10.

With White

Round 1: ch13, join with sl st to form ring, ch1 (does not count as first st), hdc around, turn (12sts)

Round 2: ch1, hdc around, turn

Switch to Red

Rounds 3-6: repeat Round 2

Fasten off and weave ends OR leave a long tail if sewing to torso.

With White

Round 1: ch 29, join with sl st to form ring, ch1 (does not count as first st), hdc around (28sts)

Round 2: ch1, hdc around

Switch to Red

Round 3: ch1, hdc in next 5sts Switch to White, hdc in next 4sts, Switch to Red, hdc to end

Rounds 4-9: work even, continuing to make colour changes for White middle stripe.

Round 10: Join first Arm, hdc in next 14sts join second Arm, hdc to end (52sts)

Round 11: ch1, [dec, hdc in next 4sts] x 8, hdc in next 4sts (44sts)

Round 12: ch1, [dec, hdc in next 4sts] x 7, dec (36sts)

Fasten off Red and weave ends. Do not fasten off White.

Continuing with White in any stitch

Round 1: ch1, [sc in next 4sts, dec] x 6, sl st to first st, do not turn (30sts)

Round 2: ch1, [sc in next 3sts, dec] x 6 sl st to first st (24sts)

Fasten off and weave ends.

Cut a strip of black felt for the belt and sew it along the middle or you can cut a longer strip to go all the way around the holder. Cut out the buckle with gold yarn and sew on top.

  1. I am confused, are we working in continuous rounds or are we working in rows and then sewing the seams together?

    1. Hi Anna, project is worked in rounds. Slip stitch to first stitch, turn at end of each round (this join creates the seam as you go along). Hope this clears up the confusion.

  2. Thank you for the reply, not my center white part is coming out at an angle, don’t look right, am I doing something wrong or will it straighten out?

    1. Hmm, I’m not sure but I noticed I did not include in the pattern that the first stitch is made in the same space as the slip stitch (have added that part). Are you already doing this?

  3. I ran across your blog site on google and check a few
    of your early articles. Continue to keep up the good operate.
