Introduction: My Little Pony

Picture of My Little Pony

This is a very pretty pony, and a good project for beginning to intermediate knitters because it's fairly easy to make. I really enjoyed making it. It wasn't one of those projects that never seems to end.
Babies and toddlers love to carry it around.
I think this can be made with many kinds of yarn, but I just used some plain old brown yarn that had been used for another project and was just lying around. I used size six needles for it. Also, I think I would do it exactly the same if I did it again.
The pattern I bought somewhere, but here is a link to where you can buy a different, but fairly similar horse(pony) pattern on ebay.

I am a hardcore My little pony: friendship is magic fan and I would love to see one of these in the likeness of one of the characters. My favorite is Fluttershy.

Did you ever see Apocalypse Pony on Robot Chicken?

Definitely cute! Maybe a mane/tail to match the button eye color?
