Reindeer/Moose Knitted Cloth

Add a red nose and you’ve got Rudolph. Knit 8 of these and you’ve got Santa’s entire fleet! I’m in the process of doing this in colorwork, a cocoa colored deer, with a red nose, on an off white background. Also converting from a square to a rectangle, for use as a guest towel. Will post a photo when completed. Fun! If I have time, will knit up several for hostess gifts.

    Just want to say thank you for keeping up this wonderful blog! I’m afraid I don’t visit all that often, but it’s a comfort to know that you’re here. Thanks!

    My husband I both agree your ‘moose’ looks more like an elk. And a fine elk it is!!!
    Google MOOSE and you will see that the antlers of the moose are much broader and also there is quite a big ‘plate’ with the tynes of the antlers branching out from these plates. The anatomical description for this ‘plate’ is palmate. Like the palm of one’s hand.
    Hope this helps.

    I guess it depends on which continent you live. On the North American continent we have moose which are known on the European continent as elk. My apologies…
