As promised (or at least as stated) here is your green sweatered candy cane related crochet pattern. Is a cuddly reindeer what you were expecting? Are you disappointed? No, I didn’t think so.
Pepp, as named by my boyfriend who was inspired by peppermint candy canes, is the newest friend in my Holiday Huggers collection. He has an equine sister Holly who will be joining the family soon. Any guesses as to what sort of cuddly friend she may be? What about this month’s Kiddo in Costume? What will our little friend be wearing this season? Tell me your guesses on Facebook.
Pepp just loves the holidays. He can often be found playing reindeer games and sipping peppermint hot chocolate. He drinks so much peppermint hot chocolate, in fact, that his antlers have become candy striped. I myself prefer sipping on peppermint mocha but Pepp is peppy enough from the holiday sweets that he does not need the added caffeine. I might switch to hot chocolate myself if I got to live off of sugar cookies and candy canes.
This is an intermediate pattern. You will need to know a few different techniques such as crocheting in the 3rd loop only, crocheting in the back loop only, and front and back post double crochets. These stitches help to make it look like Peppermint is wearing his sweater. You can use regular stitches if you do not know these ones but I do recommend looking them up and expanding your repertoire.
- 3.75mm crochet hook
- Worsted weight yarn in light brown, dark brown, white, red, green
- 12mm safety eyes (2)
- 14mm safety nose (optional)
- Pipe cleaners or floral wire (for shaping the antlers)
- Tapestry and Sewing Needle
- Polyfil or favorite stuffing
