Important tip for any amigurumi you make:

Shape the stuffed body by pressing firmly on its sides to resemble the shape you are trying to achieve. Stuffed amigurumi shapes are like a rubbery piece of clay that can actually be shaped quite a bit! Always take advantage of that fact.

Attach the pom pom to the top of the Santa hat to see the following picture as a reference:

Optional: Pinch the hat with your thump and index and stitch it a couple of times to get the slouchy hat look

Attaching the Hair:

Cut several pieces of the white yarn yarn to be a little more than double the length you want the Santa's hair and beard to be (you can give Santa a haircut later so don't worry if it was too long as the start). 

Fold the string of yarn on itself by half. Attach the yarn string by making a slip stitch with it on the head. If you prefer a video instruction check out this tutorial.

Here is a top view of how I attached the hair. The bold spot will be covered with the hat so no need to attach hair to it. I just went around the head and attached one row of hair.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

IMG_20181125_191725-01I flip Santa's hair from the front of his face to the back as per the picture. When you sew the hat on, do so with the hair flipped underneath like this. It gives Santa a nice hair style :)
