Crocheting Miracle

Little Reindeer Crochet Pattern

SHARE

I enjoyed making these little reindeers. They turned out so cute! I added the Christmas colors to them, but you can choose any other colors you want. If you find it difficult to crochet the small parts as the antlers, you can try to use bigger size yarns to make this amigurumi.

Notes

Little reindeer amigurumi is about 10 cm (4 inches) tall.
I used small ply Balinese cotton yarn (sport yarn, #2 Fine) and Tulip hook no. 2 (2 mm). The similar yarn you can use is Schachenmayr Catania (100% cotton; 50 g (1.8 oz); 125 m (137yds)).
Its size may vary according to the materials you used.
Feel free to use your favorite colors combination to make cute little reindeers!
Ignore the color changing on the body if you want to make regular reindeer.
