I have a problem understanding the MOUTH part - Rnd 1 6 chains, what do I do for Rnd 2?

Hi damienyam 4692050, sorry to hear you're having trouble understanding the mouth part of the pattern. The designer said this about round 2 in response to a similar question on their blog "in round 2 you should crochet around the base chain, so you crochet an oval shape." I hope this helps! - Laura, editor of AllFreeCrochet

I bet we all know who this little fellow is. This amigurumi pattern for this reindeer is part of a collection of busts. I would love to have one of each of them. Thanks for sharing and I can not wait to get these done for my ever growing collection of holiday decorations.

What a cool idea to make the entire set for a new baby/ new mommy, daddy set for the nursery! I like to think outside the box, if you will. Adorable little gifts if given individually to all the grandkids, equally cute for that new baby! The reindeer happens to be my favorite.

Who doesnt love Rudolph? This project is rated as Easy, although the instructions are a little fuzzy at times. A good set of photos would really help the beginning crafter, especially for the increase/decrease portions as well as the assembly. This is part of a set created by the designerdid you notice the little gingerbread man along the side? I sure did.

I love this Friendly Reindeer Amigurumi pattern. For some reason I'm stuck on making Amigurumi items using thread. I think they are so way to cute and everyone loves them. This pattern is well written and a easy read. I have been having a hard time finding the small safety eyes so I have been crocheting the eyes. I think they give item a better look and are safer for young children. I can't wait to start making this cute friendly reindeer.. Thank you so much for this free pattern.

Safety eyes I get from Amazon real cheap

Buy from Artec360 in ETSY.COM - cheap and good
