Design Notes

  • The pattern is written using US crochet terminology.
  • The pattern is written in rounds, it will be helpful to place a stitch marker at the beginning stitch of the round and move it up at the start of each additional round. 
  • At the end of each round, the number of stitches for completion is noted in parentheses.
  • Further design notes will be provided throughout the pattern to help aid in construction.
  • Caution! If using safety eyes take into consideration who will be using the item. The use of safety eyes is not recommended for children under the age of three or for those prone to putting things in their mouth as they may cause a choking hazard. Crocheted or hand embroidered eyes are a great alternative!

Special Stitches

Bobble (bo): A 3dc bobble is used in the pattern. Essentially it’s 3 half-finished double crochets all in the same stitch that are joined at the end as one stitch, or a shortened version of a regular bobble stitch. Create the 3dc bobble as follows:

With the original single loop on the hook from the previous stitch,

  1. Yarn over, insert hook into the next stitch,
  2. Yarn over and pull up a loop (three loops on the hook),
  3. Yarn over and pull through two of the loops,
  4. Stop here! (two loops on your hook).

Now repeat steps 1-4, two more times, inserting the hook into the same stitch. Remember that each time the sequence is repeated there should be one more loop on the hook.
Now, yarn over and pull through all four of the loops on the hook. This closes the bobble stitch. Bobble made!

>Design Note: When making bobbles some patterns say to make a chain after the bobble has been made to secure them even more. This is NOT done in this pattern, simply make the next stitch as directed in the pattern.

Eyes

Cut a piece of yarn about 25 inches (64 cm) long. Looking at the individual strands pull the pieces apart so that there are two strands in each section. Use each of the sections to make an eye.

  • Fasten off leaving a long tail for attaching the ear to the head.

Assembly

Pin all the pieces together to determine the desired placement for the entire piece and then stitch them securely into place. Remember to add any additional stuffing needed before closing up the holes on the pieces requiring stuffing.

General placement and stitching suggestions:

  • Place the head on the body with the front of the body at about Rnd 12 of the head and the back at about Rnd 17.
  • Place the ears on the top of the head over about Rnds 18-19 with about 3-4sts between them.
  • Place the legs in the front of the body, in a sitting position, over about Rnds 6-11.
  • Place the arms on either side of the body about one round down from the head and neck join, either slanted forward or down to the sides.
    • >Design Note: The top few rounds of the arm were left unstuffed to help them lie flatter against the body. Another option is to tack them down to the body with a few stitches in the desired position.
  • Once the desired placement is achieved stitch all the pieces in place.

Mane and Tail

>Design Tip: To more quickly and evenly cut the mane and tail pieces cut a rectangular piece of cardboard (cereal or cracker box) to half the height of the finished length (3 inches) by any comfortable length. Starting and ending the wraps at the bottom of the cardboard, wrap the yarn around the 3-inch length of the cardboard as many times as desired (one full wrap is one strand). Cut across the bottom edge of the wraps to release them from the cardboard.

  • Cut approximately 74 strands of yarn about 6 inches long for the mane and tail (in Color (B) for the Brown Horse and Color (C) for the Grey Horse, or the desired color). (56 for the mane and 18 for the tail)
    • The tail is looped holding two strands together, three loops wide by three loops tall centered at Rnds 7-9 of the body.
    • The mane pieces are looped one at a time (unless a fuller mane is desired, then loop two at a time but more loops will be needed) starting one row in front of the ears. Loop four across and end the loops at about the neck.
    • Trim mane and tail loops as desired.
