Unicorn Amigurumi

I am in the midst of planning a unicorn rainbow 6th Birthday party and I have a few crochet requests from my mini maker! She’s just like her momma and thinks everything can be made! I already finished a rainbow unicorn hooded scarf for her Christmas present and have another request for a unicorn stuffie as well.

Since I already did rainbow on the scarf, I decided to go with her favourite colour purple. For the main body portion I used Spinrite’s Tent Sale Chunky in white and purple. For the mane and the tail, I used purple yarn with different weights and textures that I had in my stash, including worsted, chunky and boucle.

The entire pattern is worked in continuous rounds, mark the start of each round with a stitch marker and do not join. I used a 4.5 mm hook, although gauge is not overly important, try to keep your stitches tight enough that the stuffing does not peek through.

Enjoy!

Notes: work in continuous rounds, do not join. Stuff parts as you go to make it easier.

Mane & Tail

Cut a bunch of pieces about 12″ long, and loop them through on the head for the mane and the bottom of the body at the back. Trim and style it up!

Face shaping

I have recently been using a darning needle and yarn to manipulate and shape the features of amigrumi. This changes the whole look of the amigrumi. I think the biggest impact is the eyes, it looks so much more realistic when safety eyes are pulled in a little to create a sort of eye socket. I would like to do a little tutorial on this in the future, so keep your eyes open!

Happy Hooking!
