Sooo some time ago now (a couple of years), I crocheted a unicorn for myself…
Then I made a little one for my niece, then she asked me to make her a bigger one… and then it snowballed… and now I’m here.
I’ve spent the last two days slowly refining my technique in making the unicorns. You see, I am terrible at reading patterns, which, in turn, means I have no idea how to write a crochet pattern. Every time I pick up my hook to make another one, I’m basically re-writing the pattern in my head. Which means every single unicorn is unique, and they take me forever to make whilst I work out what to do next.
I now have a more streamlined “pattern” in my head, which is giving me great results so far! I have been able to scale the size up and down by just using thicker/thinner yarn with bigger/smaller hooks!
I have been playing with different combinations of yarn, some with sparkles, some without! This is my favorite bit! And the reason why I have started four unicorns in two days and only finished one!
I have one order so far. And I’ll be trying to put some up for sale (see my Facebook page in the coming days/weeks)
And as my pattern gets more refined, I’ll have a go at writing it down so I can share it with you!
I’m going back to experiment with unicorns some more!
Have a creative week 🙂
