I'm sure you know someone who would love a beautiful unicorn doll to love and cuddle. As a bonus, the pattern comes with a tiny fairy friend! This pattern is relatively simple to knit, but has fun details such as the long flowing mane, and an adorable little fairy to embellish. You can even dress up your unicorn, using the clothes from my Summer, Autumn, and Winter Outfits (as well as the romper from my Wood Elf pattern).
This pattern is experienced-beginner level, requiring the additional skill of kfb increases and grafting. All pieces are knit flat and then seamed, stuffed, and assembled. The unicorn doll is 40 cm (16") tall, and the fairy is about 12 cm (4 1/2") tall.
