Rowan the Reindeer
Rowan is a soft and snugly Reindeer who would just like to be hugged and cuddled.
He is made with Wendy eider chunky, Stylecraft special DK and Stylecraft special Aran. (pictured)
Rowan can be made with any chunky faux fur yarn you choose. The yarns stated above are the ones used in the picture. As an alternative you could also use Phildar faux fur yarn which I have listed in the materials section.
He is worked FLAT on 3.5 mm needles and is seemed at the back. Some assembly is required. This is a pattern for people who prefer to knit flat pieces rather than in the round.
I have used 12mm safety eyes and a double strand of black DK yarn for his features. He measures 35cm tall and 12cm wide.
To complete Rowan you will need a knowledge of simple increases and decreases and would be suitable for beginners to intermediate.
Some suggested substitute yarns are shown below.
