Need a last minute Christmas gift? This adorable deer lovey takes just a couple of days to make and does not require a lot of yarn thanks to the granny hexagon pattern used to make it.


This baby deer lovey is made in warm shades of brown and cream and will make a wonderful gender neutral present for any little boy or girl.

I used the hexagon motif to create the white spots a deer would have on its back, and it almost looks like white snowflakes. How cute is that?

Pin it for later




     If you want to make it even more Christmassy, sew a red nose on it instead of the dark brown used in the pattern.
