Santa Pillow

I got a Mary Maxim catalog in the mail recently. I was looking through it to see if there were any cute holiday patterns. I found a cute Santa Pillow. The kit was something like $15.99.  I *almost* ordered it, cuz the pillow is so cute. But, we don't have any money right now. :P  So yesterday I went on Ravelry to see if anyone maybe had a free version of it, or something else that might be cute enough... Well, I found out that this is a FREE PATTERN!! I love free patterns!! (If after signing in, it doesn't take you directly to the Santa Pillow, just go to search and type Santa Pillow in~ That's what I had to do.) So, I immediately started one. I saved us $15.99 plus shipping. $20 extra bucks we didn't have anyway. :P  

So, anyway~~   Does this look right to you? Sigh...   Maybe I need to buy a pillow form, so I can see where I need to stop crocheting.  And re-do the beard part. It looks way too long. I think Santa needs a beard trimmer for Christmas. lol..

Looks like Santa's beard should be he same number of rows as his hat . . . or maybe a tab longer. How did yours get so large?

Thanks everyone. <3 I think there might be something wrong with the pattern. (When you get to the red part.) I am going to frog it all, and start over. :P

Instead of white all the way up, I would put a few rows of a flesh color (peach, beige, or brown). Looks like a really cute project. It could be adapted to be a leprechaun too! LOL
