A simple little toy that makes a great addition to any child’s stocking. The knitting is fairly basic, and the toy works up in just a couple hours. The antlers can be made with felt and a bit of hand-sewing, or pipe-cleaners for older children.

For even more finger puppet fun, combine the body of this pattern with the heads and tails from my Wee Woodland Wuzzies!
