This sweet festive animal would make a lovely gift or decoration for your home

Christmas reindeer knitting pattern

This reindeer toy will make people of all ages smile on 25 December

With the evenings starting to draw in earlier, now’s the perfect time to start thinking about getting ready for the winter holiday season.

Does the thought of hitting crowded high street shops to look for festive goodies leave you feeling exhausted before you’ve even left your house? Us too.

We suggest getting crafty from the comfort of your own sofa.

There aren’t many things we find more enjoyable than grabbing our needles and creating something special with a hot cup of tea close by.

Whether you want a handmade gift to wrap up for a relative or are keen to add a personal touch to your home by making your own decorations, our reindeer pattern is perfect.

With his bright berry red nose and proud sculpted horns, we’re certain he could even bring a smile to the grumpy face of Charles Dickens’ Christmas-despising character Ebenezer Scrooge.

Christmoose Christmas knitting pattern

Inspired by our knitting pattern, Woman’s Weekly reader Lisa Duddington got her needles out and had a go at making her very own Christmoose reindeer toy.

She fell in love with the adorable creature after spotting him looking festive as she browsed our site.

‘I was inspired to make your Christmoose reindeer knit after seeing him on the Woman’s Weekly website,’ she told us.

‘I’m so happy with how he’s turned out, he’s so cute!’

The team here give Lisa’s knit a big thumbs up, and we hope to see many more of her makes in the future.

Order your copy of the reindeer toy knitting pattern at The Knitting Network or call 0800 024 1212 quoting product code WTD092.
