Horse Butt Ornament Crochet Pattern

Horse lovers will be delighted with their favorite animal adorning their Christmas tree. This Horse Butt Ornament crochet pattern works up quickly using just a few yards of worsted yarn, so it’s a great stash buster. You can even add some fun fur or eyelash yarn to create the furry feet of a draft horse. Crochet a few in different colors to adorn your equestrian Christmas tree. Make a few for your horse-loving friends and family. Please post copies of your horses on my Instagram. How many horses of a different color can we all create?
