"A great pattern to make a lovely hobby horse. I used this pattern to create a unicorn hobby horse for my neighbour's little girl for Christmas. The pattern and instructions were really easy to follow and it turned out better than I could have imagined. I look forward to trying some of your other patterns. Many thanks."
