Another member of the Green Forest Gang is here to greet you! These Darling Deer are quiet and curious. They are perfect companions for pondering walks or soul-searching adventures. Be careful not to get lost in their big bashful eyes. Knitted in the round with 100% wool, these fingerless mitts are perfect for wearing during the spring and fall.

Notes
If you’re knitting more than three sts of the same colour, tack
down the second colour on the WS to prevent long floats.
Break your yarn if you won’t be using that colour in the next
several rounds, leave a tail to weave in later. If you would like a
smaller fit you can drop the needle size down to 3.25mm (US 3)
& 4mm (US 6).
