A little about me:

I’m 29. I’ve been crocheting since I was 11, so this year I have 18 years under my belt! I love to help people, so for 11 years I’ve worked as a CNA. I love cats , so I have 3 of them. My husband and I have 2 sons together. The 3 of them are the lights of my life Now I am lucky enough to run my own business where I design and sell crochet patterns, as well as my finished makes.

Desmond the Amigurumi Buck Deer Snuggler Pattern

Pattern Notes:

Measurements: This pattern creates a 14″ tall crocheted deer snuggler. You can use whatever hook size you prefer to achieve tight stitches, but this may effect your overall size.

Sizing: I use the yarn Under (YU) technique. This gives a slightly shorter single crochet. If you use the yarn Over (YO) technique, it may give you a slightly taller cow. YU stitches stack straighter on top of each other compared to YO stitches in the round, so if using YO instead, you may need to shift your arm, eye, and ear placements over by 1 stitch in each of their rows. (1 stitch over for arms, 1 for eyes, and 2 for ears) You will need to know graph work to frequently change color in the same row, for the tail.

  • Worked in continuous rounds.
  • Legs and body are all one piece.
  • Arms and tail are crocheted to the body.
  • Ears are crocheted to the head.
  • Antlers and head are one piece.
  • Nose gets embroidered on.
  • Head gets sewn to the body.
