(I’ve resolved to stop apologising for my puns.)
These are a quick knit, and yet again – no seaming!
One pattern, containing instructions for two sizes of antlers – 80yds of yarn for the small, 130yds for the standard, and two sizes of headband – 90yds for the small, 100yds for the standard.
The larger sized antlers will also ‘plug in’ to the Baalaclava pattern, as a replacement for the horns – the smaller could easily be added to a woolly hat pattern.
The headband can be worn either under the chin, or behind the neck, depending on preference. The small headband will fit from toddler to pre-teen (and if used as a headband tied behind the neck, even a smaller adult head). The large headband fits pre-teen and up.
It’s another 4mm needle, aran weight yarn pattern – you can use pipe cleaners to make the antlers poseable if you’re so inclined, and there’s the option to stuff the headband (or you could use it as a cover for a readymade alice band and omit the I-cord/button fastening).
Techniques used in the pattern include knitting in the round, picking up and knitting stitches, I-cord, and grafting.
