Acorn Hill Pony is approximately 7.5 inches/19 cm long from nose to tail and 6 inches/ 5 cm from hoof to head. It is knit flat on needles 2-3 sizes smaller than typical for the yarn weight. This is because Acorn Hill Pony is shy about having his stuffing show through his hide.

The pony is knit flat, in one piece, with easy sewing up. The pattern includes assembly instructions with photos. It is suited even to beginner knitters.

Acorn Hill Pony is originally a pattern attributed to a knitter associated with the Acorn Hill school, a Waldorf kindergarten and nursery in Silver Spring, Maryland. The school’s administrator, Janet Johnson, gave written permission for this pattern to be published to Ravelry in May of 2017, with modifications by Noreen Slank including an extensive re-write of the original pattern to conform to the sensibilities of modern knitters.

The school’s generosity is greatly appreciated.
