Deer update!

Hey there!

We have new patterns coming tomorrow for our Dress Up Dolls, but I did make another variation of my pre-existing deer pattern. I made this guy:

I followed the entire pattern for the body and head, also doing the muzzle color-change where specified in the pattern. Once the ears were knitted, prior to attaching to head, I double-knit a white color in the center of the ear. I also modified the small antlers in the pattern and made them into “Y” antlers, which I have included that change below.

“Y” Antlers (make 2)

Use the same yarn (different color) and needle size in which you used to create the doll.

You will also need at least 6″ of waste yarn or a small safety pin.

CO 5 sts, leaving an 8″ tail. Place BOR sm and join to knit in the rnd as follows:

Rnds 1-4: Knit 4 rnds

Rnd 5: kfb, k2, kfb, k1. (7sts)

Rnd 6: k2, slip next 4sts onto waste yarn without working them, k last st (3sts)

Rnd 7: knit the 3sts

Rnd 8: K2tog, k1. (2sts)

Rnd 9: k2tog. Break yarn and thread onto tapestry needle. Weave in.

To create the 2nd ‘spike’ slip the 4 live sts off of waste yarn and onto needles. Attach yarn leaving a 6″ tail and work in the rnd as follows:

Rnds 1-3: Knit 3 rnds

Rnd 4: (k2tog)2x (2sts)

Rnd 5: k2tog. Break yarn and thread onto tapestry needle. Weave in end.

Use the 2nd CO tail to darn the hole at the center of the “Y.” Weave in end.

Use the 1st CO tail to sew the antler onto head at inner edge of ear. Weave in end.
