What you need to know

Knit your own reindeer toy this Christmas with Sachiyo Ishii's easy-to-follow pattern.

He may live with Father Christmas up at the North Pole but this is one reindeer who feels the cold. That’s why he’s all dressed up in his cosy jumper and stripy pom-pom scarf. The sweater is edged with soft, fleecy yarn but you could use a smooth yarn if you prefer. Label the pieces as you go to make assembling your project easier.

What do I need?

Yarn: Deramores Studio DK, shades 70022 Gingerbread, 70005 Raspberry, 70011 Peridot, 70024 Chocolate, one 100g ball of each, Fleecy Chunky yarn, shade White, small amount
Needles: 3.5mm
Safety toy eyes: 8mm
Skewers: four
Safety toy stuffing
Stitch holder
Tapestry needle


24cm tall

Top knit tip

Stitch holders look like giant safety pins and you can use them to stop your stitches unravelling while you are working on a different section. Open up the holder and insert the bar into your stitches as if you were going to purl them, then slide them off your needle onto the holder. Later on, you’ll be able to knit these stitches straight from the holder.
