A while back I came across this severely awesome pattern, and wanted to give it a go. The only downside being that it was a double

crochet pattern, and personally I don't like double crochet for things that have to hold stuffing. Too many holes.

Therefore, I (after a certain amount of trial and error, adding a few bits and generally tweaking things around) have reworked it into a single crochet version.

welcome)

2013/3/1: If you would like to make these ponies to sell, I'm happy for

you to do so! Just please provide a link back here

A donation would also be greatly appreciated (button can be found in

the sidebar), but isn't necessary. :)

2013/3/15: Since it seems many people are ignoring my warning

about how much of a pain it is to do the corded manes and tails, I've

added instructions below. ^

^

__

2013/5/28: I've made a couple of changes to the pattern - removed

one row from the hind legs, and reworked the open wings. I've also

added instructions for crocheted manes and tails.

2013/6/24: Added a pattern for Applejack's hat.

2013/7/31: If anyone wants to translate the pattern, please do! I only

ask that you:

2) Do not charge any money for the pattern

3) Send me a link, so I can include it in the original pattern

Assembly:

(All the positions given are approximate - pin your pony together and

experiment to see what looks best!)

Legs to body - place the line of decreases to the front of the legs.

Tuck in 2-3 rows of the inner edges before sewing to prevent the legs

from tilting outwards too far. Make sure the legs are firmly stuffed

right to the top.

Front legs - front edges attached at the 7th round of the body, back

edges at the 15th.

Back legs - place as far to the back as possible, so the curve of the

upper back legs goes into the curve of the rump. Front edges should

be attached at 19th round of the body, back edges at the 28th.

Neck to body - broadest side of the neck to the front. Attach the front

edge of the neck at the 2nd round of the body.

Nose to head - (I prefer to have the head's starting point at the back

and cover the finishing point with the nose. Whether this works for

you depends on where you'll be placing your nose! Experiment to see

what looks best. If you do put the finishing point at the back of the

head, it'll be covered by the mane) Stuff the nose, sew to the front of

the head. Female nose should be positioned at the bottom of the

head. Squish female nose into turned up shape. Male nose should be

positioned in the middle of the head.

Ears to head - Do not stuff ears, flatten, curve inwards, sew to back of

head. Edges should be at the 7th/8th rounds from the back of the

head, the back of the ear should be at the 4th round from the back of

the head.

Neck to head - Stuff the neck before attaching the head.

Horn - Stuff before attaching. Place 4 rounds in front of the ears and

an even distance between them.

Closed Wings - (I recommend attaching the wings AFTER the mane,

tail and cutie mark) Attach the front half of the top edge of the wings

only. Attach to the sides of the body towards the front, an equal

distance between the neck and the tops of the front legs.

Open Wings - (I recommend attaching the wings AFTER the mane,

tail and cutie mark) Attach rounds 20 - 26 of the main wings only.

Attach to the sides of the body towards the front, an equal distance

between the neck and the tops of the front legs.

Eyes and Cutie Mark - I used felt and embroidery thread. If you

prefer, you could also use fabric paint/pens.

Straight Mane and Tail - I used thin cords made from yarn. It looks

like this:

Things to bear in mind before you try this: it takes ages to make the

cords, and it takes ages to attach them. The other major

disadvantage of using this technique is that you have to get the

length of the cord correct before you attach it to your pony - you can't

cut them to length afterwards, because the cords would just unravel.

(2013/4/5: Thanks to Miek for pointing me in the direction of this,

which is pretty much the technique below, and has pictures. ^_^)

Cut a length of yarn approximately 6 times the length you want your

finished cord to be.

Tie a slip knot in the centre, so the ends are even.

Then you take the end that you DON'T pull on to tighten the loop, and

draw a loop of it up through the loop of the slip knot. Then you pull

the slip knot tight.

Then take the end you just used to pull the slip knot tight, pull a loop

of that up through the loop you just created, then use the other end to

pull that loop tight.

Keep repeating this, alternating which end you use to pull up a new

loop, until your cord is long enough.

When you're done, pull both ends entirely through the loop (you only

need to pull one end through to secure the cord, but both gives you a

neater end), and pull the loop tight. Do NOT cut the ends at this point!

Position your cord on your pony, and use a (curved, for preference)

needle to draw ONE of the ends through the fabric of the pony, then

knot the ends together using a reef knot.

Use a needle to draw BOTH ends back into the pony's body. If you're

careful, you should be able to pull the knot through to the inside, so

it's hidden.

Curly Mane and Tail - Crocheted. It looks like this:

This also takes quite a while to make, and can't be cut to length

afterwards, but is it a lot easier to attach!

Leave long tail for sewing

Make a chain a little longer than you want your finished curl to be.

Turn.

Work back up the chain, 3 sc in each chain, until you reach the

starting point. Make another chain. Repeat until you have enough for

your mane or tail.

Sew onto pony.

(To make your curls less curly, work only 1 or 2 sc in each chain,

rather than 3)

Here's a number of other hair-making methods to try, if you'd rather!
