Rowan is a fun, happy looking little reindeer. He is all dressed up ready for the winter weather with his warm fur trimmed coat and thick scarf down to his snugly over sized boots.
Rowan stands a little over 12 inches/30cm when finished.
Knitted flat on 3 and 3.5mm needles using DK and fleece or fun fur yarns.
The pattern is clearly written with many photos to help you along the way, I would class this suitable for a confident beginner.
