Changing colors
When changing colors, I recommend using Planet June’s no-cut join method. See the last photo in the slideshow toward the beginning of the post to see what the inside of your work will look like as you switch colors.


How to indent the eyes

Note: The video above shows a unicorn, but the technique is the same for all of my patterns. My newer patterns indicate exactly where you should place your safety eyes, and instruct you to mark those stitches accordingly. This is one of my older patterns and it doesn’t indicate where to place the eyes. I plan to update my older patterns when I have a chance, but for now use your best judgement. 

Step 1 – Cut a strand of yarn approximately 18″ long. Tie a large, secure knot in one end and thread the other end through your yarn needle.Step 2 – Insert your needle through the back opening of the head and sew between the two spots where you’ll be placing your safety eyes.Step 3 – Pull your strand of yarn taut, which will create indents.Step 4 – Fasten off with a knot and hide your yarn tail inside the head.


How to add hair for the mane and tail

Note: The photos above show a horse, but the technique is the same. 

Step 1 – Cut 10″ long strands of yarn. How many depends on your personal preference, but I ended up using well over 100. As you can see in the 4th photo above, I only rooted hair on every other round, but filled in the gaps with one strand of yarn on each side.I recommend finding a book or DVD case to wrap your yarn around several times, then cut along the top – it makes the process of cutting yarn strands much faster and it’s easier to produce a consistent length.Optional: Use a ruler and a disappearing ink marker to draw a rectangle on the head as a guide for where to root the mane. You can do the same for the tail by tracing something circular (about 1.5″ in diameter) on the rear.Step 2 – Fold a strand of yarn in half, insert your hook under a stitch in the head or body. Use your hook to catch your yarn strand and pull through a loop, then pull your tail ends of the strand through the loop.
Step 3 – If giving your creation to a small child, be sure to secure each strand of hair with a knot so it can’t easily be pulled out.
