Horse amigurumi guide by mochillery

If anyone’s curious.:3

Supplies: 4mm and 3.5mm crochet hooks should be good for most yarn types. A slightly finer yarn may be used to make pompoms for the mane.

3.5mm is reserved for the ears (leaf shapes)

The glue is for securing knots and shaping the mane.

See above photoset

Yup, this is how I make horses/ ponies. :)

~15 month improvement in crochet (and sewing) techniques. Plastic eyes vs felt ftw.

-difference between inside-out and inside-in crochet. (I did not reverse my crochet work with older Kero.)

-difference between crocheting under 1 or 2 loops per stitch. (Older kero was made using the 1 loop sc).

-How yarn quality, thickness and color affects the look of the finished product. (I started out using not-so-pretty yarns for practice and to save money heh.)

-How to join legs and sew on appendages nicely and securely. ‘Nuff said.

-How to make bada$$ pom-poms using a contraption from Clover.

-How to stuff plushies so they look nice, not lumpy. Tight crochet work helps.

-How to do invisible decreases.

-I’m too lazy to design the wings.

I used an old favorite pattern for comparison.
