This unicorn is reminiscent of the kawaii universe. Perfect for starting a medium sized amigurumi crochet hook. A reminder of the magical colors of the unicorn with gold and pink.

Today I present to you another unicorn tutorial in Amigurumi. This pretty unicorn will make you fall in love with its very "girly" look: eyes with fringe of eyelashes, chewable cheeks, pretty pastel colors and flowers in the mane, she has it all.

Make sure the "neck" is padded firmly before attaching.

Row 8-23: 1 sc in each stitch (12)

EARS (x2)

 With the white thread.

Row 1: 6 sc in a magic circle

Row 2: 1 sc in each stitch (6)

Row 3: 6 aug (12)

Row 9: * 1 sc, 1 dim * x6 (12)

Row 10: 1 sc in each stitch (12)

Stop the thread, leaving a good length to sew the ears to the head. Pinch the bottom of the ears to create a small hollow, and sew a few stitches to maintain this shape. The ears are sewn in about 6 rows starting from the last row of the head. They are sewn so that they stand almost straight, and line up above the eyes. 

 

TAIL

Make a chain of 20 stitches. Make a slip stitch in the second stitch starting from the hook and then in all the following stitches. 

Stop the thread leaving some length to sew to the body. 

Here we have 5 chains in 5 different colors.

Sew them to the bottom of the body.

MANE

Same process as for the tail (chain to the desired length then slip stitches).

Taking the same 5 colors, make 4 pieces in each color: here, 2 pieces of 25 stitches, one piece of 20 stitches and one piece of 15 stitches. 

The smaller pieces go to the front, the longer ones fall to the back.

 

FLOWERS

5 sc in a magic circle. 

Stitch 5: * 1 slip stitch in the same stitch, 1 slip stitch in the next * x5 for 5 petals.

Make 3 flowers and sew them in front of the horn, distributing them crosswise.
