Supplies:
4mm crochet hook, 4/Medium weight yarn in any desired colors for your unicorn. 6mm safety eyes, tapestry needle, scissors, and stuffing. (I used I Love This Yarn! Prints in color Fruit Salad for the unicorn’s body)

Stitches Used:
Magic Ring, St/Stitch, Ch/Chain, Sc/Single Crochet, Dc/Double Crochet, Trc/Triple Crochet

Additional Information:
Difficulty: Easy
This pattern is perfect for scrap yarns! But you may use any kind of yarn you desire, in any yarn weight, with any hook size. To get the same size as my Unicorns, please use 4/Medium weight yarn with a 4mm hook.
Use “Muzzle Color” as the color you want the Unicorn’s nose to be. Use “Body Color” as the color you want the Unicorn’s body to be. Use “Hair Color” as the color you want the Unicorn’s hair to be.
We start by making the nose, which leads into making the head. They are one piece. Then we make the ears, horn, and mane. After assembling the face, we make the body. We then create the arms/legs and assemble them on. Lastly, we create the tail and sew it on.

  1. Not sure how to sew mane on head?? Fold in half or sew behind ears?? Along a row?

    1. Hi Sheri! I recommend pinning the mane to the head, right behind the horn. Pin the mane on so it’s straight and going down in a line 🙂 To sew it on, use yarn matching the unicorn’s head. Place the yarn onto a sewing needle. Then repeat the process of inserting the needle into the unicorn’s head, then into the next closest stitch of the mane. (Be sure you’re inserting your needle through the original Chain 15 piece of the mane – since this matches the color you’re using to sew the mane to the head).

      Continue to sew from the next stitch of the head, to the next stitch of the mane, and back into the head. Repeat this until the mane is fully sewed on. Once it’s secured, tie the tail end of yarn into a firm knot. Bring the knot into the unicorn head to hide the excess yarn/knot. Cut any excess yarn. Then you’re done! If I can help clarify anything, please let me know 🙂 ❤️
