I got my Olympic reindeer hat done! Yay…I was trying to get it done by the end of the Olympics, well actually way before that, but it didn’t get finished until 2 days after the closing ceremony.

Here is the start of my hat, It called to use a provisional cast on, I found a nice tutorial on You Tube by Numenorean77 (mountain mom), she has a variety of tutorials that are useful. Crochet provisional cast on tutorial video
What better way to watch the Olympics than to knit! Well, thank goodness for the instant replays. I always was missing the jump or slip, I usually stopped to see the finish.
Here is the band joined together, now I’m ready to start the exciting part of the pattern! The reindeer!
Did you know? The Reindeer family also includes the elk, moose, caribou, and deer. The Reindeer differs from other deer in that both sexes carry antlers.
The origins of the word 'deer' comes from the Middle English word 'der' meaning beast and from the Old English word 'dor'. The origins of 'rein' comes from the Old Norse word 'hreinn'
Wild life experts consider that Reindeer are an endangered species
