Darling Deer

The poor deer is often in the shadow of the trendy fox, but not for long. These fingerless gloves feature the deer front and center. You'll get to do a bit of fun embroidery to finish up the project (check out those French knot facial features!) and you'll get plenty of practice with stranded colorwork.
