Hobby horse
Does anyone know where I can find the pattern for a hobby horse?

I have found one in a book called "Nursery Rhyme Knits" by Sue Locke but her pattern does not make sense tome.

Thanks,
Jo

A knitted hobby horse? I'm not sure how that would work. Can you explain more?

Hobby horse
Hello, I'm a new member. I knit and crochet.
There is a free crochet pattern on Lion Brand yarn's website
Trusty Old Dobbin Hobby Horse
http://www.lionbrand.com/cgi-bin/pat...=horse&x=0&y=0

I crocheted one for my daughter in pink homespun, with a purple mane in 4 ply yarn. It came out cute and my kids love it. You could probably convert the pattern for the head part and ears to knitting, but the mane would have to be changed up a bit.

My husband also used a staple gun to help keep the head on in addition to drilling a hole through the stick and sewing through it.
Hope this helps.

Denise
