    Default A pattern for the knitters

    Unfortunately it's in French. But hey, you know what a horse is supposed to look like, right?

    My nephew is fluent, and will be here for 2 weeks!

    Thanks for posting, this will be fun-C'mas presents for riding buddies in their horses' colors and markings.

    Cute!

    I think i could stumble through that French, but the pattern would elude my very basic knitting skills :-(

    It's very cute! Unfortunately I can't knit. I can crochet though...or at least I used to crochet. I should re-learn that skill again. Nothing is cozier than a crochet afghan blanket. And it's something for the hands to do while watching TV...a tad more productive than doing crossword puzzles. (which is what I do now)

    I am sure though you can crochet that little darling.

    It is so adorable!

    That's just darling.

    Hrm, I don't knit or speak French, but my mother does both. Might have to pass that along to her

    I can both knit and crochet, but am very basic at both... I'd say more basic crocheter than knitter... so even the horse cute bonnet scares me.

    Sad... I'd like to make something other than a scarf.

    Just do it, I promise, it's not rocket surgery. And if it turns out wrong, you can always go back and fix it!

    I want to make that but I cannot, for the life of me, read the pattern! Is there a crochet for dummies book out there that anyone can recommend?

    There are a lot of them out there...but I doubt they have fly bonnets in them

    I prefer diagrams, once you adjusted to the minor differences in the symbols, you are home free...

    If you're serious about knitting or crocheting just head over to your local yarn store and get lessons. I took three lessons on knitting for $30 and still come in for new stitches and projects from time to time. I knit with a loom though.

    Excellent idea! They are sometimes (and some places) hard to find these days. Plus, if you manage to screw your pattern up, many times there is a pro in the store happy to help you fix it. (but don't go buy your yarn elsewhere then...)
