Pattern 7/12: Horse
This is an automated post. A new pattern will be added every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from July 7 to Aug 2 and they will be available until I return on Aug 9. I will also be able to answer comments and questions then.
A few notes: I suggest making the head last, so you can add ears, eyes, etc as you go. I places the eyes into the 12th and 16th stitches of the 7th row. I also weighed the bottom of the body with plastic pellets to keep them standing up, but you may want something heavier (like a pebble or magnet).
Red Heart Soft Yarn in Chocolate and Black
3.0mm crochet hook
Scissors, Yarn Needle, Safety Eyes
The Basic Body and Head patterns are available here.
Ch 3. 1 sc in the second ch, 1 hdc in the first ch. Ch 1, cut yarn, pull through. Use yarn ends to tie to head.
Beginning with a Magic Loop, ch 2. (The loop counts as the first ch.)
Round 1 – 6sc into the first ch. (6)
Round 2 – *1 sc, 1 inc* x 3 (9)
Round 3 – *1 sc* x 9 (9)
End with a slst in the next stitch for a more even appearance. Cut the yarn and pull the tail through. Use tail to seam to head.
As for the mane, I suggest Needle Noodles’ tutorial for attaching hair. I made the tail by wrapping yarn around a board about 10 times, tying a knot around one side, and cutting all the wraps on the other side.
