Dala Horse

Issue: Issue 58

Dala Horse by Irene Strange

This crocheted Dala Horse is a nod to the iconic Scandinavian ornament – a simple addition to Nordic theme décor.

● Stylecraft Classique Cotton DK, 100% cotton, 110g/184m/201yds
Yarn A: Poppy 3672 or Silver 3675 x 1 ball
Yarn B: 3665 Ivory x 1 ball
● 4.5mm & 4mm hooks
● Yarn needle

Any similar DK weight cotton yarn will work equally well.

Work 9dc and 8 rows to measure 5 x 5cm/2 x 2in using 4.5mm hook, or size required to obtain tension.

Finished horse is 30cm/ 12in high.

A crochet addict, Irene loves experimenting with shapes and textures, bringing cute and quirky characters to life with the help of yarn and hook! For more of Irene’s patterns visit
