What you need to know

You've all heard of Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer, but don't forget about his adorable cousin, Rodney. This little chap is all ready for Christmas and is the perfect choice for your next festive knitting pattern. Designed to suitable to beginner and improver knitters, our Rodney Reindeer knitting pattern features straightforward instructions and charming details. Whether you're making it as a gift or for your own Christmas décor, this pattern will guide you through creating a cute reindeer toy using DK yarn. We love his fluffy pom-pom nose! He isn't suitable for children under the age of three, due to the small knitted pieces and embellishments. For older kids, just make sure all the parts are really securely attached.

Double-pointed needles are used for i-cord
