This pattern is available as a free Ravelry download

I wanted a cabled deer/antlers as a symbol for the Horned God/Herne/Cernunnos. Since I couldn’t find any charts availabe, I sat down and created my own. Trial and error-wise. I must have unravelled it about twelve times…But I am quite pleased with the outcome. If you find mistakes, do let me know, please!

The leaf-border of the Yggdrasil Afghan has been of enormous help to get the antlers look right.

Since I am new to cabling I have no idea whether it’s
considered “proper” cabling.
Also, I usually simply purl two together, instead of p2tog one side and ssp on the other, I do believe one can make it look neater, but each to their own!

The pattern can also be changed accordingly so that the antlers don’t look quite so huge towards the end by simply leaving out the last branching out to the middle and not make a third M1 series of the second antlers branching outwards, but a simple cabling outwards, so that only one row on cable points towards the end, the other strand branching outwards. If this is unintelligable, send me a message and I’ll try to write it down.

The pattern is a written pattern, since I simply wrote along what I did. Since I really prefer charts, I’ll try to get a chart written eventually… Unless someone else enjoys writing charts so much that they want to do it for me ;o)

Have fun!
