Before starting this crochet Christmas pattern, make whichever crochet doll you want to outfit the Santa hat and beard with! I designed this crochet Santa hat and beard to fit perfectly on the Curlie doll (make your own with the free Curlie pattern here). But it would fit well on any 7-8-inch tall amigurumi doll.

To resize the hat and beard for a smaller or larger amigurumi, use a smaller or larger hook and yarn combo. Check out this post for a complete list of yarn and hook exchanges specifically for amigurumi.
