My Little Pony

About: I love Instructables but rarely get time to post anything.

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.

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

    Cute! I myself (and Adrian monk) have never seen a knitted horse either! Great job!
