Crochet Unicorn Baby Outfit Pattern with diaper cover and hat

Crochet Unicorn Baby: Behind The Scenes

This crochet unicorn baby pattern was originally released in 2014. I can't believe how fast time has gone by! The original baby, Ava, is still part of our lives and a dear family friend. She is featured in other patterns and goes to the same school as my children. How cool is that? I met her mom, who is my BFF, at Ava's newborn photo shoot. Who knew we would become so connected? Life works out in wonderful ways sometimes.

Crochet Unicorn Baby Diaper Cover

Crochet Unicorn Baby Outfit

This design consists of two parts. There's a fairly simple baby diaper cover. It has a cute button closure. And then the fun part: a yarn fringe tail for the unicorn. The other part of the design is a crochet unicorn hat. This is so fun to make. It has the matching yarn fringe mane. It also has the requisite crochet unicorn horn, plus a really pretty flower to decorate the top of the head. The baby can wear one part or both together.
