Amigurumi Deer Crochet Pattern

A new animal moved into the woods today! She is Ms. DuDu, the Amigurumi Deer. She is joining the forest neighborhood as a friend of both Mr. Furu, the Amigurumi Fox, and Jr. Rakku, the Amigurumi Raccoon, who she got to know from a forest party a few years ago. They had been hanging out pretty often ever since then but now that they have both moved to these woods, she missed them so much she decided to join them.

Now that she is here, Ms DuDu the amigurumi deer is looking forward to her new life in this strange and unfamiliar habitat. 

It’s so exciting. Everything feels new and different, but in a good way. So many things need to be explored and discovered, and so many animals to get to know too. There is a long list of things Ms. Dudu the stuffed deer amigurumi wants to do, being a curious young deer. 

She has mixed feelings about her new surroundings and feels both anxious and curious. As a species, she belongs to the group of one of the most vulnerable animals in the wild. At the lower end of the food chain, deer do not have it easy at all. Both fellow animal predators and humans hunt them for meat. Moving here to these woods meant this amigurumi deer has friends to learn wildlife survival skills from. While learning, she could also have some fun with those friends! Life is never easy, but she knows that makes it fun too. So here’s wishing her all the best!

Ms. DuDu the deer amigurumi is about 10 inches tall. Standing arms straight out, this crochet stuffed deer is made with a 3.5mm crochet hook, and crochet acrylic yarns in the colors of brown, beige, white, and black. Much like her friends Mr. Furu and Jr, Rakku, the crochet pattern for the amigurumi deer pattern calls for what’s known as the “split single crochet stitch”. Some of you may know it as the “crochet knit stitch” or “waistcoat stitch”. Whichever name you know it as, it is a technique where the hook is inserted between the legs of the next stitch. Using the split single crochet stitch for this pattern will keep the colors consistently vertically straight throughout the round. [Caution: Please do not try to crochet it with the normal single crochet (US term) because it will not work well. You will find the size, shape, and colorwork not in the right proportions.]

What’s rare and special about Ms. DuDu are her unique markings. Besides the beige-colored patch on the front of her body, she has distinctive “V” dot markings on her back. This makes her stand out from the rest of her species who have polka dot markings on their backs. Ms. DuDu is definitely a unique one, and it shows through her personality as well. Whenever she is happy and excited, she will wag her cheery little tail and dance like nobody’s watching. In fact, her tail is wagging very briskly now as she springs from spot to spot in her new woodland home in joy and wonderment.

HOW TO CROCHET AMIGURUMI DEER, DUDU

  1. Crochet all parts for Amigurumi Deer with SSC stitches as instructed in the crochet pattern.

    Pic 1: This is how the inside of the colorwork amigurumi looks. You may leave the unworked yarn stranded as it is. If you have left a decent length of yarn between the colorwork, then you are fine to leave them as it is. If the yarns are too short, you may trim the yarn and knot them together as shown in Pic 2.amideer 1

    Pic 2: Personally, I prefer to neaten my lengthy unworked yarn instead of stranded across the colorwork section. The clean interior makes it easier for stuffing and shaping.amideer 2
  2. Stuffed the parts accordingly.
    Align the muzzle of the deer amigurumi with the marking between the eyes as shown in the picture. Pin, sew and stuff the muzzle to the head.amideer 6
  3. Next, position and pin the ears to the head. Make sure bother ears are aligned and in symmetry.amideer 7
  4. Position all parts together. First, sew the head to the body, followed by the arms, legs, and tail respectively.amideer 13

Notes

Caution: This is a colorwork amigurumi using Split Single Crochet / Knit Stitch / Waistcoat Stitch method. Please DO NOT attempt to convert it to normal Single Crochet.Why use Split Sing Crochet instead of normal Single Crochet?
Please take note that this amigurumi pattern is using Split Single Crochet (SSC), some may know it as Crochet Knit Stitch or Waistcoat Stitch. Unlike the normal Single Crochet, SSC inserts hook in between the legs of the next st. In colorwork amigurumi where stitches are crochet in the continuous round, SSC keeps the colorwork vertically straight throughout the round. It is because the hook is inserted in between the legs of the next stitch, but if you are using normal Single Crochet, the colorwork will lean to the right or left depending on if you are right-handed or left-handed.

How to change yarn color in colorwork crochet?
Follow the pattern to work on stitches in color A until the last yarn over, pull through the loop with the new color B. Leave the color A behind until it is time to work on it again. Continue to work in Color B until it is time to change the color back to A, on the last stitch in the color B, just pull through the color A on the last yarn over and drop the color B. Leave a decent length of the unworked yarn between the color change so that it won’t distort the shape of your amigurumi. Repeat this until you have completed the pattern.
Note: I don’t hide the unworked yarn between the stitches because it will cause distortion in stitch height, especially in the SSC stitch.
