This is one of the Big Knit hats I’ve been wanting to crochet for a while – a Unicorn, with a sparkly horn, and colour changing mane.
I knew in my head what the little crochet hat was going to look like, but couldn’t quite work out the horn and how that would work – then I had a Eureka moment……
and finally got around to making a crochet unicorn hat for the Big Knit and AgeUK.
Feel free to pin it for later below
I have lots of free patterns to raise money for this great campaign, from
I used some variegated yarns to make the mane – just make sure you use the right hook size for the yarn you use.
