When I saw this gorgeous Unicorn hat pop up on my newsfeed from Repeat Crafter Me, I just KNEW a certain someone would like it. And sure enough, when I showed her the photo, she did a little hop on the spot, battered her eyelashes and that was that.
So we got to work. Using Hayfields Bonus Chunky yarn in white, I started this at a very slow craft fair I was attending. Make best use of the time, I thought to myself.
It was good to have the recipient with me as I worked so I could check it was going to fit ok.
Then the horn, Marie didn't want the brown coloured horn as in the pattern, so we chose Sirdar Ella, a sparkly silver yarn instead. Unicorns need to have a sparkly horn don't you think?
Then it was ear time, I made two, lost one, made another, found the lost one = three ears.
I only used two though :) (No rude comments at this stage please)
Now for the brightly coloured mane.
(still no rude comments please)
I decided at this stage that I had not cut the strands long enough, so went back and added another round.
One Unicorn hat - and yes, she does wear it in public :)
