"Crochet some adorable Reindeer baubles for your Christmas tree, or as little festive gifts! I have used Chunky weight acrylic yarn and a 5mm and 4mm hook for my reindeer baubles. You can use any weight or type of yarn. Just use a hook 1 size smaller than recommended for the main reindeer pieces and a hook 2 sizes smaller for the antlers. This will change the finished sizes. As a guide, using #4 weight yarn and a 4mm and 3mm hook will reduce all dimensions by approximately half an inch."
