Knit Unicorn Pattern: Headphone Wrap

The unicorn trend is still hanging on, and I am so happy about that. I mean, if you can make a Unicorn Headphone Wraps, you do it, right?! That’s why I created this Knit Unicorn Pattern. This would also be great for kids who believe in the magical sparkle of unicorns and dream big. However, it’s also a great reminder for adults to have fun, be whimsical, and never stop chasing those big dreams. All ages can truly enjoy this design.

Knit Unicorn Pattern: Headphone Wraps


Love For Unicorns

I recently read Sarah Laskow’s book The Very Short, Entirely True History of Unicorns. In this, she says:

“One of the things that stood out the most to me when reading it is how myths of this single-horned creature existed all around the world in all these different cultures.”

Sarah Laskow

Across cultures, across ages, we love unicorns. We also love music across age and culture. So, I think these things pair perfectly together, which was also part of the motivation for this knit unicorn pattern.

Unicorn Headphone Knit Wrap Pattern Notes:

Rock out in style with this unicorn detachable knit headphone cover. Kids will love it but you don’t have to be a kid to wear it and add a bit of sparkle to your music. Even when I’m listening to a serious podcast, this lightens my day by adding some flair.

Most of the pattern is worked in the round. Use a stitch marker to keep track of rounds.

Increasing to 5 sts: (knit in the front and the back of the stitch) twice, and then knit into the front of the stitch one more time, take off left-hand needle. Increased from 1 stitch to 5.

Please note, images are shown in crochet but apply to the same assembly knit instructions. Attach Velcro to each long side of the base on opposite sides. If using a self-adhesive Velcro, it’s still recommended stitching the Velcro to the base for durability. Putting the Velcro on first will help with placing the rest of the pieces.

Unicorn Horn:

Wrap the base piece around your headphones. Stuff horn with fiberfill, and place the horn on the center and stitch into place.

Using the second strand of yellow yarn, attach at the base, and wrap around the horn to create a swirl look—secure strand and weave in ends at the top.

Stitch ears in place on either side of the horn. To add some dimension to the ears, pinch the center at the base.
