I seriously hope the unicorn trend never ever ends. I love the magical sparkle of anything unicorn and how it reminds us to dream big.

Did you know I have several unicorn patterns now?

They just seem to keep happening. I’ll be sitting on the couch, having a cup of coffee, thinking of my next design and for some reason, I just keep navigating towards unicorns.

I’m considering doing a unicorn pillow cover, what are your thoughts?

So why are we so obsessed with unicorns? I gained some insight from Sarah Laskow’s book The Very Short, Entirely True History of Unicorns. 

Her book introduces us to the real and factual ways people have talked about these creatures through time. And when asked what was most interesting she said:

“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.”

For me, I’m going to continue to enjoy the unicorn trend and I hope you do as well. I mean, what could be better than being a unicorn?!

I hope you enjoy this pattern and you rock out to music with a sparkle.

Notes:

-To reduce a traveling seam use the hook over method. This occurs when completing the last step of the single crochet. Instead of placing the yarn over the hook, place the hook over the yarn and complete stitch.

– Most of the pattern is worked in the round continuously without joining. Use a stitch marker to keep track of rounds.

Assembly:

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 a 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 top. 

Ears:

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

Flowers & Leaves:

Stitch the three flowers in front of the horn and add leaves where desired. Weave in all ends and then be as fabulous as a unicorn!
