Christmas Reindeer Amigurumi Crochet Pattern

There’s a lot of time for Christmas yet when I write this article. But I like this amigurumi reindeer pattern so much that I want to share it. First of all, the black small dots on the white color really give a very realistic appearance. The same spots are also on the red thread. He’s a pretty cute character. I think the beautiful and impressive part of this amigurumi pattern is the nose. It has a very large and impressive design. When you finish knitting the toy, you will have a very large amigurumi. The finished size is approximately 20cm.
