Penny the pony teaches the hula hoop, she’s very good at it. In her spare time she is training to be an astronaut. She’s always loved the stars and is convinced if she can just touch them, something magical will happen. Also, she’s a great cheese lover and everybody knows the best cheese is found on the moon

Penny is a good cuddle size, measuring approximately 8 inches sitting in a DK weight yarn. However, she can be made from any weight yarn and appropriate hook for different sizes. This is not a pattern for beginners, but it is an easy pattern to follow with plenty of photos, and if you run in to any problems you will always be welcome to contact me for any extra help.
