These ponies are inspired by My Little Pony (TM) by Hasbro Inc
I am not affiliated with Hasbro in any way - I'm just a fan! :)

please purchase the rights to do so at 
(it's only a few bucks, and you get a PDF file of the pattern!). 
Please do not reproduce or sell my patterns. 

I work very hard to make these patterns and would like to continue to offer them for free! I'd also greatly appreciate it if you link back to my page when you share items made from my patterns. :)


Worsted weight cotton yarn
3.25 mm hook
Gauge not important - as long as the stitches are tight enough so the stuffing doesn't come through!

Final pony will be about 3.25"-3.5" high, depending on if you have a horn and where you mount the legs.

Before starting on the main head/neck/body, prep all of the pieces that will need to be attached.

Mane:
With scrap yarn, Ch 6, tie off
Cut mane-color yarn in 12 four-inch strips
Fasten 2 strips in each chain by tying a knot or using a latch-hook method

Ears:
Ch 3, starting in 1st ch from hook: sl st 1 in each of next 2. Tie off. Repeat for 2nd ear and set aside.

Horn:
Ch 5, starting in 1st ch from hook:
Sl st 1, twist chain toward you
Sl st 1, twist chain toward you
Sl st 1, twist chain toward you
Sl st 1
Tie off, set aside

Wing:
Ch 7
Row 1: starting in 1st ch from hook, sc 1 in each of next 4, sl st 1 in each of next 2
Row 2: ch 1, turn, sl st 1 in each of next 2, sc 1 in each of next 3
Row 3: ch 1, turn, sc 1 in each of next 2, sl st 1 in each of next 2
Row 4: ch 1, turn, sl st 1, sc 1 in each if next 2
Tie off, weave in end (leave starting tail to see onto body)

Eyes:
Option 1 - use plastic or glass doll eyes
Option 2 - cut small circles from black and white craft felt and sew on with needle and thread
Option 3 - use black yarn and yarn needle to stitch an arc (arched up like a bridge for happy closed eyes, or arched down like a smile for sleepy closed eyes.

Legs: (continuous rounds)
Magic loop
Rd 1: in loop, ch 1, sc 5, sl st to join. (6) tighten and tie off starting tail so it doesn't get loose.
Rd 2: in back loops, ch 1, sc around (6)
Rd 3-4: sc around (6)
Rd 5: sc 2 tog, sc 1, sc 2 tog, sc 1 (4)
Now back and forth rows, continuing from round 5:
Row 1: ch 1, turn, sc 1 in each of next 2
Tie off, leaving long tail.

Face: (continuous rounds)
Magic loop
Rd 1: in loop, sc 4 (4) pull tail to tighten loop
rd 2: sc 2 in back loops of each of next 2, sc 1 each of next 2 (6)
*pull tail to tighten loop, tie knot to secure
Rd 3: sc 1, sc 2 in each of next 3, sc 1 in each of next 2 (9)

**attach ears, eyes, horn (if applicable), eyes**
Row 4: ch 1, turn, sc 1 in each of the next 8 (9)
Row 5: ch 1, turn, sc 2 tog x4 (5)
Row 6: ch 1, turn, sc 3 tog, sc 1 (3)

Now turn your work so the head is upside dow and you're working in the chain stitches around the neck, starting at the back of the neck. Each chain counts as a stitch, so the 6 rows on each side, plus 1 stitch from the face, plus the 3 stitches from row 6 of the head = 16.

Neck: (continuous rounds, working from the bottom edge of the head)
Rd 1: [sc 1, sc 2 tog] repeat x 4 (8)
Rd 2: sc around (8)
Rd 3: sc 2 in 1st sc, sc 1 in each of next 7 (9)
Rd 4: sc 2 in each of next 3, sc 1 in each of next 6 (12
Rd 5: sc 1 in each of next 2 (stopping almost at back of neck)
**attach mane by pulling each strand through using a yarn needle. Start at the forehead and work back toward the withers, being careful to go in a straight line down the center of the back of the neck. Pull yarn through as much as you can before stuffing the head. The stuffing will keep the mane in place**

Row 1: ch 1, turn, sc 1 in each of next 10
Row 2: ch 1, turn, sc 1 in each of next 10

Row 4: ch 1, turn, sc 1, sc 2 tog x3, sc 1
Row 5: ch 1, turn, sc 3tog, sc 1

Body: (continuous rounds, working from the back edge of the chest)
Rd 1: ch 1, sc 1 in each of next 5, sc 2 in each of next 3 (at top of back), sc 1 in each of next 5 (16)
Rd 2: sc around (16) **attach front legs and wings**
Rd 3: sc 2 tog around (8) **attach back legs, insert stuffing**
Rd 4: sc 2 tog around (4)
Tie off, leaving long tail. Adjust stuffing if needed, use tail to stitch hole closed, the off, weave in ends.

Please do not reproduce, share, or sell my patterns.



Breezybot Apple Amigurumi 

Use any yarn weight and hook size to achieve a tight enough stitch so the stuffing won't show through. I used worsted weight cotton yarn and a 3.25 hook for the ones in the example.

Leaf: (sage green) 
Ch 7
Row 1: sc 1, hdc 1, dc 1, dc 1, hdc 1, sl st 1. Tie off.

Stem: (dark brown) 
Ch 7
Row 1: sl st 1 in each ch. Tie off.


Apple: (red or bright green)
Worked in continuous rounds
Magic loop
Rd 1: in loop, ch 1, sc 6 (6)
Rd 2: sc around (6)
Rd 3: sc 2 in each stitch (12)
Rd 3: [sc 1 in next st, sc 2 in next] repeat around (18)
Rd 4: [sc 1 in each of next 2 st, sc 2 in next] (24)

Tie off. With yarn needle, stitch the tail through the stitches of round 2, pull to close. Use the tail to poke through the apple to the base of the stem, then back to where you tied it off. Gently pull it just enough to make the stem dimple into the apple. Tie off again and weave in ends.

FREE RECIPE Super Easy Granola

I never realized homemade granola was sooooo easy, tweakable, and SO MUCH MORE DELICIOUS than store bought stuff that's full of preservatives and has been sitting on the shelf for ages.

Basic Super Easy Granola:

Preheat oven to 325*.

In a large bowl, mix together:
5 cups of dry, rolled oats
1/2-1 cup of sliced nuts (I like almonds)
1/2 cup of any combo of the following: oat bran, wheat germ, chia seeds, or sesame seeds
A pinch or two of salt
OPTIONAL: cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, ect...

In small saucepan, over med-low heat, stirring frequently:
2 Tablespoons of butter, vegetable oil, or virgin coconut oil (NOTE: coconut oil will taste coconut-y!)
1/4 c honey
1/4 c sugar (I usually do half brown or half raw, but you can do all brown or all raw, or just skip the sugar and add more honey)
OPTIONAL: 1 tsp vanilla or 1 Tablespoon molasses

Once the warm mixture in the pan is well combined and sugar is just melted, drizzle a third of it over the oat mixture in the large bowl. Stir, drizzle another third, stir, drizzle the rest, and stir until evenly coated. It should have little bits sticking together. If it doesn't, heat up a little fat and honey and mix it in. If it's too clumpy, add some more oats and keep stirring.

Spread on a cookie sheet with a high lip (or in a 9x12 baking dish or large roasting dish), place in 325* oven, stirring well every 7-10 minutes until it starts getting brown. (My  husband likes it extra toasty, so I keep it going until some pieces are almost burnt!)

Remove from oven (OPTIONAL: stir in about a cup of raisins, dried cranberries, or other dried berry. Let cool completely (the less you stir while it's cooling, the more crunchy clusters there will be!). Store in a jar in a cool, dry cupboard.

Serve in a bowl with a lot of milk and fresh fruit! YUM
