“Prancing Horses” beanie has been created as a gift for making my dreams come true. Many, many years ago I dreamed of being able to ride a horse, but never had the courage to go for it. This year I decided, it’s now or never! This hat has been made for my instructor, Nika, who is soo patient and lovely. It’s also been made for my daughter, your daughter, your friend and loved one who just like me dreams of horses every day.

Pick two contrasting colors of DK weight yarn and cast on! Just be careful as I bet your horse will love to munch on its pompom instead of an apple :)
