Henry the Horse is off to the races.

TECHNIQUES: All pieces are knitted flat on a pair of straight knitting needles. The reins and horseshoes are made by crocheting a single chain. You will need to cast on and off, knit, purl, work increases and decreases, change colour at the end of a row (knit stripes), and sew seams.

FINISHED SIZE: The horse is 23cm tall (when standing from tips of toes to tops of ears).
