The Gift Horse Knitting Pattern

(1 review) Write a Review

A complete illustrated knitting pattern to make a soft toy horse with a red plaited woolly tail and button joints, this makes a lovely gift for a horse lover.

Using knit and purl stitches and increasing and decreasing, the fully illustrated instructions take you step by step through knitting, making up and decorating your pony. The finished horse can sit, stand, or even lie down, and looks lovely sitting on a bedroom shelf. Suitable for knitters with a little experience. 

To knit this pony we suggest using Sirdar Snuggly 100% Merino yarn in colour 71 Lagoon, but you can also knit the horse from any DK or 4 ply weight yarn including Sirdar Snuggly DK in Sky or Sirdar Snuggly Soothing DK in Baby Blue.

You will also need: a couple of metres of Hayfield Bonus Chunky in Signal Red (or equivalent chunky yarn) for the tail, 3mm straight knitting needles, four small circular buttons, stuffing, a metre of black DK yarn for the eyes, darning needle, sharp needle, cotton.

Once purchased, the pattern will be available for instant download so you can get knitting straight away!

(Please note this product is a downloadable pattern NOT a kit)

Finished horse measures 20cm x 20cm and is poseable.
