Thanks for stopping by – here you can find all the details for the Crochet Unicorn backpack I designed.
My loves unicorns, I mean she’s absolutely besotted with them. ?After I designed Violet the Unicorn I had another bright idea!
What every little girl needs is a bag, and a striking bag at that! Thinking cap on, and a new wool delivery later, and Raindrop the Unicorn backpack was born.
It’s easier than you think, using the Amigurumi method and single crochets to make the head, and normal US double crochet for the actual bag. The straps have a nice effect using star stitch, and the Mane……. well there is a trick to making things curly!
Oh how I loved designing this, and then the joy on her little face when she saw it – worth every frogged stitch (and there were a few until I was happy with the result). It’s been sat around for a while, as I was making sure the pattern was ok with a friend kindly testing it for me…… and I got the photos last week saying it was all good!

Crochet / Amigurumi Unicorn Backpack
You need 2 balls of Stylecraft chunky, and 1 ball of a DK yarn, I used Cygnet Kaleidoscope yarn (1 ball)
18mm safety eyes (two of them)
2 metal magnetic snap fastenings.
Needle and scissors.
The pattern is worked in a nice chunky wool for the bag and the unicorn. As soon as I saw the raindrop yarn from Cygnet Yarns, I knew this had to be the mane and tail colour – so magical! Instantly the unicorn had a name and an identity!
Mane, Tail, Straps and bag tie are all made from this yarn.
It works up absolutely beautifully – just look at how it changes colour subtly when doing star stitch.
The pink one loves her, and so do I!
