Crochet Reindeer Antlers Pattern

Last year I posted a crochet Rudolph the Reindeer hat pattern (pattern HERE) which was embellished with felt eyes and antlers. Although I absolutely love the look of the felt pieces, the antlers don’t really stand up and I’ve had a lot of requests for crocheted versions of these parts. So here ya go!

I actually experimented doing the antlers a couple different ways, but this way was the quickest and easiest so this is the one I’m sharing :)

Materials:
– Worsted weight yarn. I used Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice in chocolate brown.
– Size G6 (5.5mm) hook
– Poly-fil stuffing
– Tapestry needle

Abbreviations:
Magic Ring Tutorial
SC = Single Crochet
HDC = Half Double Crochet
DC = Double Crochet
TC = Triple Crochet

Antler Pattern:
Magic ring, chain 1 and make 9 SC inside magic ring. pull tight and continue to crochet in rounds
Rd 2-14: SC in each stitch around (9 SC)
Feel free to make this part longer if needed by continuing to SC in rounds.
Fasten off leaving long tail to sew onto hat. Stuff with poly-fil.

Now make a second piece just like the first but stop after 4 rounds.

Using your tapestry needle, stitch the smaller part on the larger piece. 

Now you can stitch it onto the top your hat between the ears. 

If you also want to make crocheted eyes instead of felt, here is the pattern for that.
Crochet eye:
Using white worsted weight yarn…
Magic ring, make 10 HDC in ring, join to first HDC, chain 1.
Rd 2: HDC in first 5 stitches, 2 DC in next 2 stitches, 2 TC in next stitch, 2 DC in next, 2 HDC in last stitch, join. 
Fasten off leaving long tail to sew onto hat.
Crochet eyeball:
Using black worsted weight yarn…
Magic ring, chain 1 and make 10 HDC in ring, join to first HDC.
Fasten off leaving long tail to sew onto the white part of the eye.
So now you have two options! Rudolph with felt accents or a completely crocheted Rudolph!

When I made the white part of the eyes I had to use an I hook because otherwise they came out way too small. I haven't done the antlers yet but I'm sure you would want to use the smaller G hook for those. You might want to check your instructions on this. That said I love this pattern and so glad you came up with one that used all crochet. You have so many wonderful patterns and I can't wait to try them all :) Thank you for sharing these with us for free.

Thank you so much for sharing your talents. I have made many of your hat patterns and hope our church members who buy them are enjoying them. The donations to the hats we make go to our missions.

I have an alternate pattern for the antlers if you are interested.

ch 10, sl st in the 2nd chain from the hook, sl st the next 4 stitches (should have 3 remaining chains left)
ch 10 again, sl st in 2nd chain from hook, sl st in next 7 stitches, sl st in 3 remaining chains left

ch 2, working on other side of ch, hdc in each ch around shape, working 5 hdc in antler tips. Finish off and weave in ends

just thought it might be another option in case you don’t want to work the antlers in the round
