I was doing a swap over on swap-bot where we had to send crocheted or kitted animal fridgies to our partners. Turned out though that there weren't a whole bunch of patterns to choose from. Not ones that were free anyway. So, starting with this one of a giraffe for inspiration, I made some of my own.

As you can see I went with a rabbit and a deer. They are nothing terribly exciting, but I thought it worth writing down some patterns.



I've never written a pattern before, and as you might be able to tell I made them a little different each time, but I shall do my best to explain what I did.

bunnies!


sc = single crochet (american style i think - the one you use for amigurumi)

  • chain 7
  • sc into the 2nd chain and sc into each chain after that (6sc)
  • sc 3 or 4 more times into the last chain to make the tail.
  • turn and slip stitch into the next link
  • do 2 rows of 6 sc, chaining 1 and turning at the end of each
  • on the next row skip the first loop and do 5 sc to start the back curving, chain 1 and turn
  • on the next row do 4, skipping the 2nd last loop, chain 1 and turn
  • then 3 sc, skipping the first loop, chain 1 and turn
  • 2sc for 2 rows, chain 1 and turn at the end of each
  • in the last loop of that 2nd row do 3 more sc into the same loop to make the nose. chain 1 and turn
  • sc into each loop (5sc)
  • chain 5 for the first ear.
  • slip stitch down the front of the ear
  • slip stitch in the next 2 loops on the head
  • chain 5 for the next ear
  • slip stitch down the front of the ear
  • slip stitch to the next loop in the head and tie off

weave the loose ends back into the body and then glue them down when you stick the magnets on

deers!

body and head
  • chain 7
  • sc into the 2nd chain and then into each chain after that (6sc), chain 1 and turn
  • do another row of 6 sc
  • chain 3 for the tail and slip stitch back down the chain to the body
  • slip stitch into the first loop of the body
  • do another row of 6 sc, chain 1 and turn
  • 3 sc, chain 1 and turn
  • skip the first loop and 2 sc, chain 1 and turn
  • 2 sc, then 3 extra sc in the 2nd loop to make the nose, chain 1 and turn
  • sc into each loop (5sc)
  • chain 3 for the ear, slip stitch back to the head
  • slip stitch into the next loop
  • chain 7 for the antlers
  • slip stitch back down 3, then chain 3 to make a new prong
  • slip stitch back to the main part of the antler and down 2 more
  • chain 3 for another prong then slip stitch back to the main part of the antler
  • slip stitch down to the head
  • slip stitch into the next 2 loops on the head and then tie it off.

Now the legs
  • connect a new bit of yarn to the back, bottom corner of the body with a slip stitch
  • 3sc into the first 3 loops, chain 1 and turn
  • skip the first loop and 2sc, chaiin 1 and turn
  • 5 rows of 2 sc, chain 1 and turn at the end of each row
  • do a final slip stitch and tie it off
  • connect a new bit of yarn to the 2nd loop in from the front, bottom corner of the body with a slip stitch
  • 5 rows of 2 sc, chain 1 and turn at the end of each row
  • do a final slip stitch and tie it off
weave all the loose ends back into the body and then glue them down when you stick the magnets on.

Those deer are sweet Kimbles! I can see them on Xmas cards, and other things Roll Eyes.
Great stuff!

It wouldn't be hard to add a red nose. Or use some felt to add a harnass with bells on.
