I love carousel horses! Ever since I was a child I've adored these beautiful creations whirling around and around. I love their intricate and ornate tack and brilliant colors. So I simply had to make a 3D one. This fellow is based on an actual carousel horse, carved by the Hershell-Spillman Company in 1913. His flanks are covered with woven bands and there is a phoenix just under his saddle.

I like accuracy in plush animals and have made the markings and eyes like that of real horses.  Why use cross stitch?  Because cross stitch allows me to make tiny details that would be difficult to do by another method. Who says that cross stitch is only good for flat things?  Now you can stitch a doll using cross stitch for the details.

The animal is stitched as 16 pieces which are then cut out and sewn together. The mane and tail are added by latch hooking floss to the finished animal. The pole can be made using a painted wood dowel or (as I did) a piece of brass tubing. Full assembly directions with illustrations are included.

This pattern was hand designed by a professional artist/crafts person
Finished size is approximately 8" tall to top of his ears x 7" wide from nose tip to back of tail when worked on 14 count fabric.  The image is composed of 26 colors.


Each pattern contains:

* Color picture of the finished image
* Pattern in black and white symbols on several pages
* Floss list in your choice of DMC, Anchor or Madeira
(if DMC is NOT wanted, specify preference when ordering)
* Full stitch count
* Floss use yardage
* Directions with photos of how to assemble the animal

Design contains many fractional stitches and backstitches, appropriate for an intermediate stitcher. Pattern may be worked on different count fabric which will result in a different sized finished product.

Pattern will be emailed as a PDF within 24 hours after receipt of cleared payment.

All cross stitch patterns are copyright Robin Hobbs and are for personal use only. Reselling or redistributing patterns in any way is prohibited, unless given written permission by designer. Although, one finished work from my pattern is yours to do with as you please.
