Amigurumi Deer Free Crochet Pattern

This free crochet pattern for my little amigurumi deer is a great project for intermediate as well as seasoned crocheters! 

Many of you have asked me for a deer crochet pattern, so I thought a little fawn is a must for our collection. Don’t worry if you don’t like color changes. You can crochet the fawn in brown only and later embroider the white spots on the back.

The pattern is accompanied by a video tutorial which you can refer to if you need visual guidance for any of the steps. Please let me know anytime if you have any questions. 🙂
