1:12th scale hobby horse
This is designed for a dolls house. It was designed to be reminiscent of a hobby horse made from an old sock and a piece of stick, with or without wheels. Although the photos are shown with traditional horse colours, this works well in ANY colours.
Materials required for sock: Size 19 (1.00 mm/US size 5/0) knitting needles, 13 yards/12.5 metres 1-ply wool. Additional requirements: Tacky glue (or glue suitable for use with wool and wood). Scissors, needle, small amounts of wool for mane, eyes and mouth, small amount of stuffing, cocktail stick, small scrap of felt, 2 small beads and string for bridle.
Finished size: Approx 3-inches/7.5 cm tall, horses head approx ¾-inch/2 cm long.
Gauge: Gauge is not important for this project as toys can be any size.
