Crochet Unicorn Ukie

Ukie the crochet unicorn has joined our Juna series! We wanted to add something colourful to the series and what better addition than a magical crochet unicorn! With her pastel-coloured mane and tail, and a little heart on her belly, she’s sure to steal your heart. The pattern is adorable yet it is also very easy and works up fast.

Materials

  • Yarn: You need less than 100 grams of DK yarn in cream and a small amount in beige, light pink, medium pink, lilac, light turquoise, and lemon yellow. I use DK yarn but worsted weight/aran yarn will work just as well.
  • Crochet hook: For amigurumi, you typically go down one or two hook sizes from that recommended on your yarn label.
  • Tapestry needle
  • Stitch marker: You can use a locking stitch marker but even a scrap of yarn will do! This pattern is worked in the round, so place a stitch marker at the first stitch of each round so that you can keep track of where each row begins.
  • Polyfill stuffing
  • Safety eyes: I use 12 mm blue safety eyes or you can crochet eyes for children under 3
  • Embroidery thread: A small amount of black for eyelashes and nostrils.
