Knitting Pattern: Horses Seven Years

Knitting Pattern: Horses Seven Years


This is a PDF instant file.
The front and back are almost identical. Two horses are nuzzling together in a grassy field underneath two apple trees. On the front the apples are red and ripe; on the back the apples are still green and growing. The mirrored sleeves show each horse rearing. There are two trims at the wrist and hem: one of gold horseshoes on blue and one of red roses on periwinkle. The neck, wrists, and hem trim is alternating stripes of red and variegated blue. Obviously the horses and apples can be any color you like!
Obviously other color combinations are possible.
Have fun!
