Folklore is full of stories of the Little Folk - elves, fairies, sprites - sometimes helpful, sometimes mischievous, but always enchanting.
This 30 page PDF crochet pattern gives you all the information you need to make all six of the Little Folk pictured above, and multiple pattern variations so that you can make a creature to your own design.
The pattern is suitable for crocheters with a little experience. The instructions are detailed and easy to follow if you know the basic stitches and techniques used to make amigurumi, and there are lots of photos to help with the more advanced techniques used. They are written in English using US crochet terms, and the list of abbreviations includes the UK alternatives. The pattern is a downloadable PDF file and you will need Adobe Reader to open it. I will be happy to answer any questions you may have as you are making it.
The pattern contains:
