Dreamt it, did it! (A "deer" little project.)

It's pretty satisfying: I am getting to the point with crochet where I can imagine something and then work it up.  It rarely works out the first time, but when I finally get it right, all the ripped out stitches don't matter!

Here is a gift from my nephew Mason's shower, earlier this summer.  (I should add that his dad is an avid hunter.)

A deer antler ear flap hat!!!

I made this in sportweight acrylic yarn.  I was going to stuff the antlers, but the crochet was tight enough that they just stood up on their own.

No pattern for this one (yet).  But if I have occasion to make another, I will definitely write down the steps this time. ;)

He loves it!


  1. Aw, what a cutie! Being able to "wing it" is just so much fun! (Sometimes a little frustrating, but overall fun!) Did you stuff the antlers?

    I'd love to have you link up to my first ever Yarn Fanatic Party!

  2. Hi Rachel,
    I had plans to stuff the antlers, but they ended up being stiff enough that they didn't need any stuffing. (Thankfully! That made it easier to sew together!)
