Amigurumi Unicorn (Free Pattern)


Is it just me, or are unicorns getting the attention they deserve? I just keep seeing them e v e r y w h e r e , and to be honest, I couldn’t be happier. Unicorns are one of my favorite creatures ever, they make everything more magical, you know? This fellow would make the perfect gift for a magical-and-cute-kind-of thing lover ^_^

This magical pattern is Ms. Eni’s property, sadly, she had to put down her blog 🙁 I was so, so happy when I found it on my notebook (I had it translated to spanish), I was planning to make this cutie later.
