I have given the classic rocking horse an updated flair. I hope you like the details as much as I do.

Yarn weight and hook size can easily be adjusted, just keep in mind your finished project will use a different amount of yarn and be a different finished size. If you share your works on Instagram, tag me: @AshleesLint

You will receive a chart and written line-by-line instructions for interlocking AND mosaic crochet.

The Locked Filet Mesh (LFM) interlocking crochet method uses only chain spaces and double crochets to create a mesh; two colors are worked alternately which creates the pattern.

Mosaic crochet is single crochet and double crochet stitches. The double crochet stitches cover some of the other color’s single crochet stitches to create the design. My patterns instruct you to cut your yarn at the end of each row. The back is striped.


I have YouTube tutorials available for both crochet methods! Follow this link to get to my YouTube channel and find my other social links.
