Spherical Reindeer

After completing Dirkle for my friend (who I ultimately didn’t see, thanks to the Christmas Blizzard of 2010), I got bored and uninspiring with yarn. I was just out of ideas. So I turned to a source who knows nothing about crocheting, which was obviously a bright idea, and the response I got was “MOAR SPHERICAL ANIMALZ.” And so, Riendurr was born.

I used the Lion Brand penguin pattern as a basis, and sort of improvised from there. His nose is a sort of mess of red yarn – if I had been less lazy, I would have had a pompom. My main suggestion is make the feet first, because I had to start using the yarn from both ends because I forgot. OOPS.


He’s cute, if not slightly special. I can’t put my finger on what it is that makes him derp-ish.
