Instructions for Crochet Horseshoe Pattern

This pattern is made by making a chain, then working on both sides of the chain.

Step 1: Ch x39

Step 2: In the 3rd chain from the hook make a dc.

Dc x6.

Then dc inc, dc x3, dc inc, dc x2, dc inc, dc, dc inc, dc x3,

dc inc, dc, dc inc, dc x2, dc inc, dc x3, dc inc, dc x7.

Then add 3 more dc stitches into the same place you added the last dc. This allows you to turn to the inside of the horseshoe.

Step 3: Working on the inside of the horseshoe now:

Dc2tog, dc, dc2tog, dc x6, dc2tog, dc, dc2tog, dc x3,

dc2tog, dc, dc2tog, dc x6, dc2tog, dc, dc2tog, dc inc (this increase is to get to reach the first stitch on the outer side of the horseshoe).

Then sl st to the first dc on the outer side of the horseshoe.

Step 4: Sl st around the entire horseshoe both the outer side and the inner side. Sl st to the first sl st and fasten off the yarn. Then weave in any ends.

If you want to add a bit more flare to your horseshoe you can take your tapestry needle and weave in another colored yarn along the middle of the horseshoe where the chain is to add dash marks.

Expert Tips

Don’t make your slip stitches too tight otherwise your horseshoe will curl up.
