My Brindle Pony

Yesterday while I was at work, I decided to crochet a pony. This isn’t such a crazy whim to follow through on since I’m currently working at a yarn & fabric store here in Montreal and Sunday afternoons aren’t so busy.

I had just finished making some crocheted flowers for the shop and had an appetite for more crochet.

I’ve been curious about amigurumi for a while, but somehow I have never tried it. After cruising some patterns on Ravelry, I found this pony pattern, grabbed a 3 mm hook and some random oatmeal fingering weight wool and got to work.

When I got home last night, I grabbed some left over aqua blue Fleece Artist I had from knitting a shawl for my mom a while ago.

Today, I continued working on the pony while hanging out on my front balcony, sewing each piece on after I was done crocheting it. I just finished it up this afternoon.

The only thing I found a bit strange was that each piece is made separately, and then sewn together. My understanding of crocheted toys was that each piece could be picked up and worked off the next? Maybe that’s just wishful thinking.
