Basic Skills Necessary:

  • do stranded knitting with two colors

Pattern Description:

Some deers have been running alongside our bus last week, parallel to our street in the "prairie". That is at least what our bus driver likes to call the rural area he drives us to... ;-)

They were so close!

So I thought it was time for this beautiful stag beanie with my typical dotted two color (corrugated) ribbing.
It has three colors and 3 bands of tiny deers on it and a nice little border pattern.

It is knit with 4-ply sock yarn leftovers (about 30 g of each color will do).
You do not need to use the brand I did as you might not be able to get it where you live.
Any 4-ply sock yarn or Acrylic yarn of similar weight will do.

Size adjustments can be made by going up one or two needle sizes and/or using 5-ply yarn.

The fact that my name translated to English means "hunter" might also be to blame on it as well as a certain Gilmore Girls episode ;-)

Happy stag knitting!
