I thought I was pretty much on top of all the Christmas makes I have left this year, that is until I saw a unicorn uploaded by Toft on Instagram and I suddenly realised I had overlooked a make on my list – a unicorn for a friends little girl.
Sheer panic started to develop as I didn’t know if I had enough time to make it for passing presents over his weekend. Luckily I had already bought the wool and put it to one side so I could get started straight away and the pattern was from one of my favourite crochet books – Edwards’s menagerie by Kerry Lord.
The unicorn is put together using the pattern for the horse with a horn from the highland cow for the unicorn horn – I saw this modification online a while back on their website (http://edwardsmenagerie.blogspot.co.uk/2015/07/chardonnay-mythical-cousin-chablis.html?m=1) and knew it would be perfect for what I was wanting to make.
After some frantic hours of crocheting I finished this little cutie late on Friday – just in time to get pictures and wrap early on Saturday before it went off to go under my friends tree….phew!
Hopefully I have no more makes that have been forgotten about…….
