Good morning everyone!
Today's pattern comes with a little festive cheer. Last week my youngest, Miss M walked out from her room with... Well... Like this!
Yes, she sticky taped antlers on her head. While I admire her creativity, sticky tape on ones head isn't ideal, especially when you have hair stuck in it. So in comes mamma with a promise to make some antlers, that don't involve taking your eyebrows off when you remove them! Could these have been a little neater? Sure! But you know what, we're not fussed about being super neat. Miss M LOVES her antlers and has proudly worn them every day since, I guess we'll call that a win hey! I hope your little ones enjoy these as much as mine do!
You will need
Worsted Weight yarn in 2 different browns (DK works just as well). (Use the lighter of the 2 for the ears)
Main Antler Piece - Make 2

1: ch2, sc in the first chain 6 times
2+ sc in each stitch around continually until the tube is 3 inches shorter then your headband. End off and slide over your headband. You should have 1.5 inches left on each end uncovered so it can tuck behind the ears easily. Weave in all ends.
Sew antlers onto the headband.
