Crochet horse pattern
Free amigurumi tutorial
These fancy horses are crocheted in uncommon way – as one part. You need to sew only ears. The height of finished crochet horse is approximately 14 cm. This toy required some skills, so if you’re just a beginner you’d better try another amigurumi toys at first 🙂
To create a crochet horse you’ll need:
- Yarn (acrylic, cotton, semi-cotton or semi-woolen) – 250 m / 100 g
- 2.25 mm crochet hook
- Sewing needle, scissors
- A pair of beads for eyes
- Felting wool (optional)
- Any decorations you want

ch = chain
sl st = slip stitch
sc = single crochet
hdc = half double crochet

Weave the tail in the needle and draw up the hole and weave in the end.
Stuff not very tightly (the horse shouldn’t be too plump in the end) through the opening in the neck. Use a chopstick while stuffing.
Start crocheting a neck, stuff it as you go.
The place where you join the yarn is indicated with an arrow on the photo.
