Custom Ugly Christmas Sweaters with Elf Design

Custom Ugly Christmas Sweaters with Elf Design

September 30, 2016

For custom ugly christmas sweaters, you may want to incorporate an elf into your design. They're cute but they are also funny and will make great custom sweaters. If an elf is what you're looking for, keep the following in mind:

Take Inspiration from the Movie

Ok so you may not want Will Ferrell on your custom ugly christmas sweater but you may want to opt for a funny elf. Take inspiration from the movie-looks at scenes, poses. Do you want your elf to dance, sit with little children etc. Knitting is very advanced so don't think you can only go for something basic. Try different things. 

Decide on the level of detail you Want

Do you want your elf to have facial features or be just an elf outline? The knitting process can incorporate faces into the design so fear not! 

Decide where you want the Elf

Deciding where to put the design is a really important part of the custom ugly christmas sweater design process and it's something that many people think is obvious-it goes on the front in the middle right? Of course that's a super spot for the design but have an open mind about other designs too as the best design for your custom ugly christmas sweater will depend on what elements you'd like to include. You may have other little designs you want to add like christmas trees etc. These can be incorporated anywhere on the sweater or on little bands like the below image.

Opt for an Elf Body

You may not want an actual elf on the sweater but you may in fact want the sweater to be the body of an elf. So take the above image of Will Ferrell for example. You can have the sweater made green with a white collar and cuffs and even incorporate a knitted black belt! 

The options are endless when it comes to the elf. Contact us at with any queries!
