Additional Information:
Difficulty: Easy
We start by making the nose of the horse, which works into the head. They are one piece. Next, we make the ears and horn. We then make the body, arms and legs. Finally, we make the hair for the mane and tail!

Head:

We start by creating the unicorn’s head. The head starts at the nose, which we make by creating a chain. We work around this chain in a round, and it will work into the head. If you want, you could even use this pattern to make a zebra or horse. Just choose the appropriate colors for it!

Mane:

To make the mane, we cut a piece of yarn and pull it into the head of the unicorn. We then secure it. This process is repeated for both the mane and the tail.

Take a ~8″ piece of yarn (Pic 1). Insert your hook into the mane area of the unicorn (Pic 2). Place the yarn on the hook (Pic 3) and pull it through the head (Pic 4-5).

Yarn over with both yarn ends (Pic 6) and pull the yarn through the loop (Pic 7). Now pull both of the yarn ends at the same time to secure the hair (Pic 8-9). Repeat this process. I did about 3 strands of hair for a total of 5 rows (Pic 10-12).

Tail:

To make the tail, we cut a piece of yarn and pull it into the tail area of the unicorn, then secure it.

Take a ~12″ piece of yarn (Pic 1). Find the area best to place the tail (Pic 2). Insert your hook into the tail area of the unicorn (Pic 3). Place the yarn on the hook (Pic 4) and pull it through the unicorn (Pic 5-6).

Eyebrows: (Optional)

In Black Embroidery Thread

Insert needle with thread above and to the right of the right eye, and pull needle out diagonal and to the left (Pic 1). Reinsert needle into the original insertion spot (Pic 2). Pull needle out above and to the left of the left eye (Pic 3). Reinsert needle diagonal and to the right (Pic 4). Pull needle out to the original insertion spot. Tie both ends of yarn to form a knot and weave the knot into the unicorn to hide the ends.
