Twinkle the Unicorn




Free pattern for Twinkle the Unicorn amigurumi.

Pdf version available here.

Materials:
- Worsted weight yarn - approx. 250 yards white, 20 yards hot pink, 50 yards hair color(s), scrap amount of yellow (I used Caron Simply Soft yarn in Snow (sparkle), Neon pink & Rainbow Bright)
- Suggested hook size: 3.25mm (D)

- Black embroidery floss
- Poly-fil
- Yarn needle

My unicorn measures approximately 9” tall (minus the horn) when made with the above materials.

You can use any weight yarn or thread that you are comfortable using. You do not need to use what I used for my doll, just adjust your hook size accordingly.
