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 🙂
– Worsted weight yarn. I used Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice in chocolate brown.
– Size G6 (5.5mm) hook
– Poly-fil stuffing
– Tapestry needle
Magic Ring Tutorial
SC = Single Crochet
HDC = Half Double Crochet
DC = Double Crochet
TC = Triple Crochet
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.
