Tatted Horse Shoe

Since I just spent half of August touring the American West, I decided to do a pattern appropriate to the West. So I made a horse shoe. Horse shoes are often hung on walls and above doors as a token of good luck. Tradition says to make sure you hang it with the ends pointing up so the luck doesn’t run out!

This pattern is beginner level and uses one shuttle. I used size 30 DMC Cebelia thread in white.
