Arms – make two

R1: 6 sc in a magic ring

R2: 6 inc (12)

R3: 12 sc BLO

R4: 12 sc

R5: (2 sc, dec) x 3 (9)

Stuff arms, Fasten off, and leave a long tail for sewing. Sew onto the body just under the neck about 6 visible stitches apart.

 

Feet – make two

R1: 8 sc in a magic ring

R2: 8 inc (16)

R3: 16 sc BLO

R4-6 (3 rows): 16 sc

R7: (2 sc, dec) x 4 (12)

Stuff foot, Fasten off, and leave a long tail for sewing. Sew onto the body directly below the arms. I like to sew them about 3 rows up from the base of the body.

 

Snout

R1: 6 sc in a magic ring

R2: 6 inc (12)

R3: (1 sc, inc) x 6 (18)

R4: 18 sc

Stuff lightly, Fasten off, and sew between the eyes about two rows up from the neck. Stuff as you sew.

 

Horn 

R1: 4 sc in a magic ring

R2: (1 sc, inc) x 2 (6)

R3: (1 sc, inc) x 3 (9)

R4: (2 sc, inc) x 3 (12)

R5-6 (2 rounds): 12 sc

Fasten off and leave a long tail for sewing. Sew onto the head, ensuring that it is centered with the snout. Stuff as you sew on.

Ears

R1: 6 sc in a magic ring

R2: 6 inc (12)

R3: (1 sc, inc) x 6 (18)

Fold the ear in half and place a sl st in the 3rd stitch of the last round to keep it folded. Fasten off and sew onto the head, on either side of the horn, about 3 stitches away from the horn. 

Hair Curls (Make 5-7) 

Chain 20. Beginning in the second chain from the hook, place 3 sc in each chain stitch. This will create a spiral. Twist it around your finger to shape it into a curl.

Attach them onto the back of the head right behind the horn. I like to do 2 rows of 3 curls. Attach by using your hook to thread one of the ends of a curl through a stitch. Use the two tails to do a triple knot and then weave in the ends. 

Tail (Make 3)

Chain 12. Beginning in the second chain from the hook, place 3 sc in each stitch down the chain. Fasten off.

This will create a spiral. Twist it around your finger to shape it into a curl.

Attach them onto the back, centered between the legs and about 4 rounds up from the bottom. Attach by using your hook to thread one of the ends of a curl through a stitch. Use the two tails to do a triple knot and then weave in the ends.

I’ve made other unicorn patterns, then I made this one and decided “this is the one” lol. The unicorn I made looks almost exactly like hers (I used different eyes), which means she made zero mistakes writing the pattern. GREAT pattern. Super talented designer.

I made my first one yesterday. The directions were easy to understand. Did not take long to make at all. Sold it at a festival today. Can’t wait to make another one. Thank you so much.
