Here is Oliver, one very vain reindeer. Done up to the 90’s, this endearing little creature is going to melt the hearts of young and old alike. An amusing addition to the festive season. Sitting he is 10 inches tall, but measures 19 inches overall

Knitted flat on 3mm needles throughout, with no complicated stitches or shaping. He is a fun knit with countless leg an arm colour and texture combinations possible to make him a unique toy

<big>Oliver’s story is now incorporated into the pattern. If you do not wish to print this, only print out pages 1- 12<big>
