Last Summer I was trying to make up all the knitting kits I have in my craft space, in order to free up some space and to see how they look when finished. One of the kits I made was a little knitted unicorn. It was a lovely little make and proved very popular with my daughter and her friends. So much so I have been asked to make several more.

I love it when people ask me to make something for their children for birthdays and make requests for favourite colours. I’ve also enjoyed making these in my own colour combinations to give as gifts. They are so cute and when made in baby yarn, they are so soft and cuddly too. I’ve embroidered the eyes on these as well, so there are no problems giving them to smaller children.
This lovely pink creation was for a gift for a friend’s daughter. She loves horses so I think a unicorn made a lovely present.
This one was a Christmas present for a friend’s daughter.
Alice was desperate for a unicorn of her own and she chose this colour combination as it reminded her of Twilight Sparkle from the My Little Pony series.
The next three have been made as gifts. The pink one made a lovely new baby gift for my daughter’s dance teacher.
I was starting to think I wouldn’t get to do any crochet again, until one of my work colleagues asked me to make her a different unicorn for her grandaughter. (This pattern was posted in Let’s Get Crafting magazine and is from Moji-moji designs).
These are all so lovely to make and I can’t help but feel happy when I making one of these creatures. Long live the unicorn revolution!!
