In 2013, I was commissioned by Boden to create a set of faux taxidermy heads and my deer head was part of the original set. My giant head has always been a fan favourite so I'm really excited to introduce a mini version of it.
The mini deer is knitted using Scheepjes Stone Washed XL. I chose this yarn as I loved the feel of the yarn and the white strands running through it.
You can now choose which colour of nose you'd like for your deer, in case you want to make yours a red-nosed reindeer.
