I wanted to create a fun little round unicorn pattern and this is the end result. It is only small and is perfect for using up small amounts of yarn and stuffing you might have leftover from larger projects.

Have fun trying different yarn and hook sizes combining different colours for interesting and exciting makes. I loved designing this little cutie, and although it doesn’t look much like a Unicorn I hope you agree that it is an adorable pocket-sized pal.

Keep scrolling for the full pattern and the list of equipment you will need.

To Assemble

You may find it useful when assembling your unicorn to use pins to pin the legs in position on the body.

Sew the legs in place, adding a small amount of stuffing to each leg as you sew each leg to the body.

Position your unicorn face, carefully sewing around the outside.You can sew a smile and nose onto the face before or after sewing it to the body.

Position the unicorn horn, adding a small amount of stuffing before sewing all the way around the base to ensure it is firmly attached.

To sew the curly tail to your magical unicorn use the above photo as a guide. I started sewing around the outside before moving to the middle to ensure the centre of the tail is firmly attached also.

I hope you have great fun making your own little unicorn.
