This pattern is in chart form with minimal written instructions.
Stitches used: Knit, Purl, K2tog, provisional cast on.

This Hat is based partly off of this pattern: Basic Lined Hat Pattern, partly off of this pattern: fornicating deer chart, and partly my own design. I created the designs for the area below and above the deer. I modified the deer charts a bit to make the trees and the deer a bit larger. I also added a bit more detail to the antlers.
