This pattern hasn't been tested yet. I wanted to get it up before Christmas. If you run into any errors please let me know so I can fix them.
Here is the pattern for the felt pieces. It should be printed at a normal paper size. I really don't know how to make it print out perfect for everyone. I just did the best I could. I hope it helps :)

I'm very glad to see that you were able to rename and repost this pattern. I was in the middle of making the body and was terribly disappointed to see that it had to come down. My kids will love "Brown Pony" and may even rename him ;) Thanks for all of your awesome patterns!

Mammi said...

I am so glad you were able to re-post this. Just today I was looking at this and was very disappointed it was removed. I had to go out and left this up and when I came back I thought I would ck again to be sure I couldn't print it out, and there it was.

My grandbabies got Woody and Jessie for Christmas, but we couldn't find the pony. My 2 yr old (who was getting the Woody )had to go to the ER Christmas Eve, we thought she was dehydrated from the flu and they would give her some fluid and she would be back. After a near death experience she was transfered to Lebonhuer's and spent Christmas Day in ICU. She has Type I diabetes. (I said Santa wasn't good to her, Bad Santa brought diabetes). Her birthday is Jan 22 and this will be great to go with her Woody and if it turns out good, Jessie will probably need one. Thank You so much!!!

Rachel Joy said...

Yay!!! My little brother is going to LOVE this :D Toy Story is his favorite, and I made him a Woody Doll for his birthday. Since then, he's been screaming "HORSIE! HORSIE!! Where is my horsie?!?!" I was wondering if you could tell me how big it is, though? Like, finished dimensions and whatnot. :)

elisagurumi said...

wow!! just lovely :)! thank you for sharing the pattern!!

AprilDraven said...

Thanks Everyone!

Tip: Save the pattern you are working on. You never know what will happen. Unforeseen circumstances might force the author to take it down. So save save save :)

I don't know how big he is but once I find my measuring tape I will measure him. (My daughter loves to measure stuff so it is probably in with her toys lol)

Kasiulkowe Prace Szydełkowe said...

Erins Toy Store said...

How cute!!! You are just so talented. I love your patterns.

Also my 10 yr. old son said you look like Selina Gomez. Just thought you'd like that. :)

Have a great day!!!


AprilDraven said...

Erins Toy Store: LOL thanks :) I'm almost a decade older than that girl but I can see it ;)

Janet said...

LOVE this pattern!!! So glad you were able to repost this pattern. My son is going to be so happy, after I suprise him with it.
One question, is this on worsted weight yarn?

Anonymous said...

I am all finished with the pony! I just have to cut the felt and put it on. The pattern was wonderful and very well written. Thanks again! Going to post some pictures soon. Do you mind if I post them on Ravelry with a link to your pattern?

AprilDraven said...

Shelly said...

Love this pattern!! I am almost finished and need to start his head. I was wondering what peach yarn you used for the snout? I have been looking around and can't seem to find anything I think is appropriate! TIA!!

Mallaurie S. said...

I came across this pattern a while ago and bookmarked it, I came back to it and it was gone!!! I thought I imagined it. But I found your 'brown pony' and was able to make it for a girlfriend of mine, as a gift for her unborn baby. I wanted to say thanks and your patterns are awesome!! Your so generous.

AprilDraven said...

Thanks Everyone! :)

Chantal: I love the saddle you made. perfect :)

Shawnda said...

This looks absolutely fabulous! I told my son I would knit him a Bullseye horse, so I am definitely going to use your crochet pattern as a reference! Thanks so much!

Jazz said...

Thanks for sharing! He's just lovely! I'll post a picture when I made it for my baby cousin.

Oly said...

I made one, using your pattern but I made it smaller by dividing by half (approximately) the number of rounds and stitches... :-)

XnikidoX said...

Just wanna say how amazing your patterns are. I made a mini version (bout 5in tall) of jack for my hubby and he loves it. Big plans to buy some of your patterns for this coming christmas. Cant wait to start on cosmo the dragon.

kristin said...

Is there anyone out there that can make me the 'brown pony'? My nephew's birthday is coming up the end of September and he is in love with Toy Story. He has a Woody doll and I thought this would be perfect for him. Unfortunately, I am just starting out crocheting and am completely overwhelmed when I read through the pattern directions. It would be much appreciated for any help on this.

Kichi said...

I made one Horse by your Pattern.
Love This. THX

Robs said...

I'm very excited to make this for my daugher! I have a question, though. I'm on the body, and am having trouble figuring out rounds 4-6. When I add up the number of stitches that should be in each round, I am coming up with a different number. If i do 2 sc in each stitch in round 4, I keep thinking I should I end up with 48 total which changes the total for rounds 5 and 6. Can someone help me with this? I've got my 4 legs done already!!

AprilDraven said...

Rnd 4: *2 sc, 2 sc in next sc*, rep from * to * around (32)

This means: 1 sc, 1 sc, 2 stitches in the next stitch

Robs said...

Oh my goodness--I get it! THANK YOU SO MUCH :)

Marty Smith said...

I have crocheted 2 of them and am starting my 3rd one. Thanks for much both the lil ones I have given these to love them so much.

Roxi Manolache said...

How big is the horse?

Fiona-Grace said...

This is perfect for my boy. How much yarn will I need ( sorry if I've I been a numpty and missed it In your pattern.)

Unknown said...

This is so gorgeous! My siblings and I love toy story (I was just 11 when the first one came out). My mum hasjust taught me the basics of crochet and so I'm diving in the deep end by having a go at this, and I'm doing quite well so far, they're great instructions!
I was just wondering, in round 7 for the feet, could you please tell me what you mean by 1ss, ch1?
I assume it means slip stitch, but I'm not sure where, and is it just one or all the way around?

Debi said...

I am having trouble figuring out row 7 on the head. It makes no sense to me. Could you please explain? I love this pattern. I am making it for my great grandson who is not here yet. Thank you

Unknown said...

Love the pattern but need help. When you finish the neck do you stuff it or do you wait finish the head, stuff them both and then sew together? Please help this is my first attempt. Also how do you "weave it"? Thank you

Lorena Kessler said...

Lorena Kessler said...

Does anybody know how to do the ears?

Unknown said...

Unknown said...


I wonder if you would allow some of these to be made and sold to raise funds for a charity? I'm doing a stall for a charity I'm fundraising for (Friends of the Dartmoor Hill Pony) and looking for horse themed crafts. Please let me know on either way, thank you :) Beautiful work by the way!
