The Dawson the Deer Pattern provides instructions for crocheting an adorable, young fawn doll and his cozy scarf. This stuffed animal toy has button-jointed arms and legs, though you can opt to attach the arms and legs without buttons as well! Dawson is a sweet softie that is suitable for intermediate crocheters. He makes for a rustic, handmade gift for baby showers, nurseries, children, and fans of deer or woodland critters!

This 14-page pattern includes complete written instructions with accompanying photo references for crocheting this doll from start to finish. The pattern includes an optional pattern for making a hair bow embellishment to put on the bunny’s head.
