The third baby animal to the Woodland Baby series is here! Meet Woodland Fawn. She is so gentle and sweet and the kindest of the woodland creatures. She enjoys playing and running around with the other animals in the woods! As with the other woodland baby creatures, bunny and bear, this fawn also sits independently. Her pattern is now available at Etsy and Craftsy.
The pattern is beginner friendly and contains detailed instructions with plenty of photos for references and assistance. You will need to know how to make a magic ring, crochet in spirals, single crochet, half double crochet, single crochet increase and decrease, change colours and you will also need to know very basic sewing and embroidery techniques.
I will be taking a short break on making woodland creatures for the time being. I will be working on a raccoon, fox and maybe an owl in the next series. I plan to release those patterns in the spring – it’s currently autumn here. Farmyard animals are next on the list. Can’t wait to get started! I have already made some rough sketches.
For this fawn I used a 4.5mm hook and 8 ply soft acrylic yarn. The finished fawn measured about 20cm (8 inches) from top to bottom.
You will need:
4.5mm crochet hook
8 Ply Soft Acrylic yarn in Light Brown at least 100g (189m/206yds)
8 Ply Soft Acrylic yarn in Dark Brown at least 20g (37m/40yds)
8 Ply Soft Acrylic yarn in White at least 30g (56m/61yds)
8 Ply Soft Acrylic yarn in Pink at least 10g (19m/20yds)
Small amount of Black embroidery thread
Polyester toy stuffing
2 Plastic safety eyes (20mm)
Pearl head pins
Stitch marker (optional)
Pattern is available at Etsy and Craftsy. I hope you enjoy crocheting this Woodland Fawn and if you do crochet this cute forest animal, I would love to see a picture – post a picture on instagram and tag me @maryjcarlos (or #helloyellowyarn) or post on my Facebook page.
