Horse and Donkey CAL Part 2




Welcome to Part 2 of our Horse and Donkey CAL! I love all of the colors I'm seeing in the group and now it's time to add some more features.

Today we will make the head and arms! 

Feel free to add your own personalities by adding eyelashes, eyebrows or smiles as you'd like!

If you are just joining in it's not too late to start. You can find all of the details about the CAL and link to Part 1 here! Each part will remain free here on the blog so you can crochet at your own pace.


Pattern

The full pattern is also available in an ad-free PDF version in my Etsy and Ravelry shop!



We are making these farm friends in 3 parts:

You may make and sell items made from this pattern but please do not sell, share or reproduce the actual pattern. If you sell finished items online (Etsy, etc) please provide a link to the pattern and credit to me as the designer, thank you. I hope you enjoy this pattern!

For this pattern I have used 15mm plastic safety eyes. If you don't have these on hand or prefer to make crocheted eyes instead, I have a tutorial on making them with crochet thread here

(For each of the parts below we will be using our 3.5mm crochet hook.)
