I have just finished this rather wonderful crochet head of a stag. All he needs now is a name.

I got the pattern from a fantastic book called Animal Heads by Vanessa Mooncie. All the patterns look terrific and I fully intend to make more of them.

I have never understood why people kill animals for entertainment and then smile while holding a severed body part in front of the camera. It doesn’t require much talent to kill a beast but it did require talent to design this pattern. Vanessa Mooncie is a talented artisan and no animals were harmed in the making of this art.

    Champion
    Rush
    Forester
    Timber
    Sprinter
    Dart
    Quest

    Roe
    Buckley
    Spruce,
    Browne
    Not so much, Huh?

    1. Wow! She is amazing. A very talented woman. Her patterns are all wonderful and the detailing, especially around the eyes, is superb. She’s published some other crochet books that look just as good that I’m tempted to get.
