My Horsie is knitted top down, the head, front legs and body are knitted in one flat piece with a seam under the muzzle, down the centre back and at the back of the front legs. Due to the head, front legs, and body knitted in one flat piece it was necessary to use a limited amount of short rows in the muzzle and body to achieve the shape. I have worked these rows with Japanese short rows, I find this method easy. I have included a short tutorial in the pattern should you need it. The hind legs, ears, mane and tail are knitted separately and stitched in place. I have knitted the mane separately instead of knitting it into the main body so that you are not limited to using long eyelash and some knitters may choose to latch hook the mane in normal yarn.
Ensure that your knitting weave is tight enough so that the toy filling is not visible, if too open go down a needle size
I am now retired, having worked as a Laboratory Analyst for 25 years. I have always loved to knit and sew but didn't have the time while working shift work and raising my 2 sons. I now have 5 grandchildren and lots of time to indulge in craft work.
