Crochet the one and only Father Christmas with us. As ever, Sachiyo Ishii has added plenty of character – just look at that round nose and his bushy eyebrows! If you’re new to working with fluffy yarn, this is a great pattern to start with, because it’s used as an accent rather than for large body parts. What are you waiting for?

The problem with regular gingerbread men is they’re just so tasty they don’t last very long! The solution? Create your very own amigurumi gingerbread man to keep forever and bring out each Christmas. This delicious design by Sarah-Jane Hicks is worked in mainly one colour and the head, body and legs are one piece, so he’s quick to make. You’ll have him finished before you can say ‘gumdrop buttons’. One Color, Colour, Gingerbread Man, Create Yourself, Teddy Bear

Heather Gibbs has wowed us again, this time with a Christmas camel no less. Millie is made with crochet stitches you’ll most likely have in your repertoire, but we’ve kicked things up a notch by using popcorn stitch to create the dinky ears. The most important thing with this amigurumi make is to take your time when sewing her together to ensure she stands proud. Crochet Stitches, Crochet Hats, Camel Tops, Popcorn Stitch, Sewing

When the presents are wrapped and the sleigh is loaded, who does Santa rely on to guide him through the winter skies? Rudolph of course! Designed by Sarah Louise Read, our adorable amigurumi version is sporting a cute, fluffy-fringed jacket to keep him snug. Take your time when sewing up your reindeer’s antlers and ears to make sure they’re even and matching; wonky antlers could lead to a wrong turn on Christmas Eve! #crochet #rudolph #christmas Winter Sky, Rudolph Christmas, Christmas Eve, Wonky, Sleigh

Snow is a rarity in the UK, so when it comes tumbling down you feel like a big kid. You never know how long it’ll last though, so making a snowman feels like a sprint. Heather Gibbs’ amigurumi snowman can be made at a more leisurely pace – and if our real-life versions look anywhere near as cute this Christmas, we’ll be very happy indeed. Fluffy yarn advice and fancy half treble stitches... what a treat! Amigurumi Snowman, Crochet Snowman, Make A Snowman

When you have a sparkly red yarn, what better way to showcase it than with a plump red-breasted crochet robin? Hannah Cooper has used the intarsia method to change colours when working the breast. While you work your rounds, remember to crochet over the colour you’re not using, so it’s ready to pick up again for the next colour change. Follow the rule and your amigurumi bird will be the cutest around! Crochet Robin, Robin Redbreast, Red Yarn, Hannah Cooper

There's nothing like a warming cup of hot cocoa... This crochet one by Hannah Cooper features an intarsia Christmas tree motif on the mug, so lots of colour changes await. To simplify the crochet hot chocolate pattern, ignore the colour changes and make a plain mug instead. Chocolate Topping, Hot Chocolate, Plain Mugs
