Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer and Clarice the Doe Hats

Last year, my crochet friend, Chelsea over at A Chick w/ Sticks, sent me a few of her patterns to go over and look for typos, and maybe make a few to try it out.  You may remember the post I wrote about her fabulous Turkey Hat.  Well, one of the patterns she sent me was for Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer and Clarice the Doe.  It has taken me a while to go over them, and for this I feel really badly.  But recently, I have been making some newborn hats for some of my friends who are having Christmas babies and I instantly thought of Chelsea's pattern.

I feel in love with this pattern!  (Which you can find here!) And I cranked out a couple of the hats just the way she designed them.  When I first get a pattern, I like to do it just so as to get a feeling for the design and to learn new techniques and get ideas.  Then I decided that I was going to change it up a little to make it look a little more like the characters in the movie I love so much.  This is what I came up with:
If you crochet and are interested head over to her site and get these patterns!  Here are a few of the changes that I made:
Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer
For Rudolph, I changed the nose.  Instead of having it just the red nose, I put the white background behind it.  I also made his antlers little stubs since I made this for a newborn, I thought the reindeer should look like a baby too.
Clarice the Doe
For Clarice, I also changed the nose like I did for Rudolph.  As well as I didn't use the Clarice ears that were in the pattern, I used the Rudolph ears for her too because I thought they were just so dang cute!

Anyway, I didn't do too many changes.  I just wanted it to have a little of my personal touch, I guess.
