Round 2: inc 6 times. (12)

Round 3: [sc in next st, inc in next st] x6. (18)

Place the eyes between Rounds 9 and 10, spaced by 4 st. DO NOT ATTACH THEM YET. Once you have decided where to place the eyes, take them off. With your tapestry needle and some black yarn, make some eyelashes as shown in the picture below. Then, you can put the eyes back and attach them.

For a male horse, I would suggest to avoid the eyelashes but to do some eyebrows instead.

Arms (make 2) :

The arms in the picture are shorter than what the pattern said. I just realised afterwards that longer arms would fit better.

The hair :

 

It is now time to make the hair. I am not going to lie, it is a long work but I love it! It offers so many different possibilities. You can play with different hairstyles, different lengths,…

First, you have to cut a lot of yarn strings (from your dark brown acrylic yarn) about 10-11 inches long. Then you can start to attach the hair to the head with your tapestry needle as shown in the pictures below. Do the same for the tail.

You then have different options, you can leave it like this and cut it to have the same length everywhere.

With your tapestry needle, you can also separate from each other each strings composing the yarn. You will then have some beautiful wavy hair!

I wanted straight hair, so I simply use my hair straightener on the lower temperature. Please test on a string of yarn before doing it! I am not responsible for any straightener damage…Test very carefully and do not stay too long on the same string!

Once it is done, cut the hair to have the same length everywhere. You can also add accessories in the hair. I decided to add a small red bow.
