Meet Filip the Horse! Are you ready to make a whole herd? He is pretty quick to make -when using worsted weight yarn, he measures approximately 7 inches (18 cm) long.

Filip’s head and body are all one piece, so all you need to attach are his legs and ears, plus hook in some hair. His snout and hooves are crocheted through both loops, while the rest of the body is through the back loops only, giving him different textures. This also adds some variety while crocheting!

The pattern includes detailed instructions and step-by-step photos, plus you can contact me along the way to ask any questions.

This is an easy level pattern that involves starting with a magic ring, chain stitches, single crochet, half double crochet, double crochet, increasing, decreasing, attaching pieces, and working through both loops and back loop only.

Materials you will need:

  • E US (3.5 mm) hook
  • worsted weight yarn approximately: 55 yds (50 m) for main colour, 22 yds (20 m) for contrast colour
  • yarn/tapestry needle
  • removable stitch markers
  • two 12 mm plastic safety eyes
  • polyester fiberfill stuffing

Note: If you are making this amigurumi for someone under 3 yrs, I recommend crocheting or embroidering the eyes instead of using the plastic safety eyes.
