When you have complete the basic hat, you are going to add 3 more rounds in beige to create the snout. Pattern is as follows:

Reindeer Snout Pattern:
Round 1: SC around in new color, join, chain 1
Round 2: SC around until you get to towards the middle of the front of the hat. This is where you are going to make 7 DC stitches (be sure that the 7 DC are centered in the front because this is the start of the Reindeer snout), SC the rest of the way around, join to first SC.
Round 3: Slip stitch around until you get the 7 DC, make another 7 DC, continue to slip stitch around the rest of the hat, join to first slip st, fasten off, weave in ends.

Now flip the “snout” up and fasten it in place with a red button.

 

Reindeer Ears:

– Create two in Honey color using H or J hook (the larger the hook, the bigger the ear).
– Then create two more using an F hook and lighter colored yarn. Sew the smaller pieces into the inside of the ear. Then sew finished ears onto hat.

Chain 5, SC in 2nd chain from hook and the rest of the way down chain, chain 1, turn.
Row 2: SC across, chain 1, turn.
Row 3: 2 SC in first stitch, sc in next 2, 2 SC in last stitch, chain 1, turn.
Row 4-5: SC across, chain 1, turn.
Row 6: SC decrease, SC in next 2, SC Decrease
Row 7: SC across
Row 8: 2 SC decreases
Row 9: SC decrease
Chain 1 and SC around edges, fasten off and weave in ends.

Reindeer Antlers and Eyes:

Here is the downloadable template for the antlers and eyes. You will need to cut out 4 antlers from dark brown felt and one each of the eyes and eyeballs. The eyes should be cut with white felt and the eyeballs with black felt.
Rudolph the Reindeer Antlers and Eyes Template

I used 2-ply (separate your 4-ply yarn into 2-ply) brown yarn and a small tapestry needle to blanket stitch the felt antlers together. I stuffed them lightly with poly-fil before completely sewing it closed. I sewed them onto the hat, but if you want them to stick straight up, you might try using a pipe cleaner or floral wire in the antler and wrapped around the area where the antler meets the hat. The antlers on my hat do flop over a little when being worn.

The black eyeballs were hand-sewn onto the larger white eye with 2-ply yarn and a tapestry needle using a regular straight stitch. And then the complete eyes were sewn onto the hat at a slight angle.
