A [livejournal.com profile] help_pakistan pattern! Not the custom pattern (I'm still working on that one), but a pattern from one of the custom amigurumi I offered to make. I've gotten confirmation from all of my bidders now (yay!), but only requests from two, and now I've, uh. Finished one already ._.a See, inspiration took hold, and would not let me go, so. Uh. ...Look, I'm really tempted to make some sort of "pony express" joke here, but history jokes are better left in the hands of the master herself, so I'll just do some linkdropping and get to pattern posting.

From Hark! A Vagrant: You may remember the Shetland Pony?
Pony Hitman
Shetland
In Service of the King
Pony Prince
Pony Returns
Pony Meets a Ghost

Yeah, one of my winning bidders requested that :Db

Pictures first!



I wanted to do the tongue too, like the limited figurine, but it didn't work out :( Also, I feel way more confident about it now that it's in the mail ^^a Its hair kept poofing out, augh D: Consequence of the yarn I used, I suppose.

When all my charity work is done, I'm so making a larger sized one for myself to cuddle. Yes ♥


Pony Pattern \o/

For this pattern, you need to know: US stitch names, crocheting in the round (spiral), single crochet (sc), chain stitch (ch), slip stitch (sl st), increasing ([stitch] 2 in 1), decreasing (dec), front loop (single) crochet (flsc), and how to attach fringe.

Head
Row 1: Start in a ring; sc 6; continue in a spiral
Row 2: sc 12 (sc 2 in each 1)
Row 3: sc 15 (sc 3, sc 2 in 1)
Row 4, 5: sc 15
Row 6: sc 18 (sc 4, sc 2 in 1)
Row 7: sc 18
Row 8: sc 7; ch 3, sl st 2; sc 4; ch 3, sl st 2; sc 7
Row 9: sc 18
Row 10: sc 12 (sc 1, dec 1)
Row 11: sc 6 (dec each stitch)
Row 12: sc 3 (dec each stitch)
Finish

The chain and slip stitches in Row 8 make up the ears

Body
Row 1: Begin in a ring, sc 6; continue in a spiral
Row 2: sc 12 (sc 2 in each stitch)
Row 3: sc 18 (sc 2, sc 2 in 1)
Row 4: sc 24 (sc 3, sc 2 in 1)

Row 19: sc 12 (sc 1, dec 1)
Row 20: sc 6 (dec each stitch)
Row 21: sc 3 (dec each stitch)
Finish

Legs (make four)
Row 1: Begin in a ring, sc 6; continue in a spiral
Row 2: sc 9 (sc 1, inc 1)
Row 3: flsc 9
Row 4: Change color, sc 9
Row 5, 6: sc 9
Finish

Add fringe for mane (I used yarn strips of ~3"/7cm and trimmed them once they were all anchored)

For the tail, I tied a bundle of about seven yarn strips (~3"/7cm) and stitched the tie onto the pony's butt, up near the top

Stitch in face and/or eyes (I have never been so tempted to use googly eyes in my life)


And now, back to work on the custom pattern! *Rosie the Riveter pose*
