RUDOLPH THE REINDEER

 

Skill Level: Easy

  • Approx 25 – 50 grams of Brown
  • Small amounts of medium worsted yarn in white; red and beige
  • Hooks 5, 50 mm
  • Yarn Needle

Abbreviations:

SC – single crochet

HDC – half double crochet
SC2tog – single crochet two together
Gauge: Tension/Gauge is not necessary for this project to be perfect – if making more than one for an afghan or blanket; crocheting the same tension throughout will ensure squares are approx the same size.
