Cute Christmas Deer Amigurumi Free Crochet Pattern

Hello, my dear and respected needlewomen and all those who are interested in crocheted toys!

The middle of November is the time when many begin to feel the approach of the most magical and beloved holiday of all – the New Year. There is still time in stock to make gifts with our own hands. I suggest you crochet a cute calf Stepan. I don’t know how it is with you, but my moose is associated precisely with the New Year holidays. Of course, Santa Claus sleds are usually driven by deer. But who knows, maybe moose sometimes helps them? 🙂

Just a little bit more and we will start knitting. I would like to say a few words to the administrators of needlework groups on social networks and to other lovers to completely copy other people’s achievements. Let’s be polite! This master class is written only for the site world-hmade.ru. Therefore, I am opposed to you duplicating it completely in your groups. You can make an announcement by writing a few sentences and photos, and place an active link to the source.

Well, to all those who decided to crochet Stepan’s moose, I suggest deciding on the tools and materials that we need.

Materials and tools for knitting elk:

Yarn for knitting two colors: beige and dark brown. I knitted from the remnants of yarn, so, unfortunately, I can’t say which yarn I used, because labels are long lost. But I think this is not so scary. You can choose any yarn you like. The main thing is that it be the same thickness.

Crochet hook suitable for the size of the selected yarn. I crocheted No. 1.25.

Filler for soft toys.

Two black beads for the eyes.

Quite a bit of white Iris yarn to shape the moose’s eye.

Thin wire for the frame.

4 buttons for attaching paws.

Thread, needle for sewing.

Scissors.

Head.

We knit the elk’s head with beige yarn.

1 row: 6 sc we close into the sliding into magic ring

2 row: 6 increments (we knit 2 single crochet in each loop of the previous row) (12).

3 row: (1 sc, 1 inc) – repeat 6 times, i.e. to the end of the row (18).

5 row: (3 sc, 1 inc) – 6 times (30).

6 row: (4 sc, 1 inc) – 6 times (36).

If the hole after knitting 6 dec is residually large, then you can knit a few more dec until the hole is completely closed or tighten it with a needle with a large eye.

Horns (2 parts).

Horns are the hardest part of crocheting moose. Therefore, the description of this section will be a lot of photos. If you deal with knitting horns, everything else will seem very simple to you.

Knit with brown yarn.

7 row: we knit 8 sc over incmi of the previous row. Next 4 ch. and using the connecting column we connect the opposite side. There are 12 loops in a row: 8 sc, knitted over incmi and 4 ch.

The photo below shows the stage when we typed a chain of 4 air loops:

Next, using the connecting column, we join the opposite side:

We continue knitting in a circle, until we touch the resulting hole. Hereafter, we will connect the appendix. In the meantime, we continue to knit the base of the moose horn.
