How to Crochet Amigurumi Unicorn with Marly Bird. This crochet unicorn stuffed animal pattern is free from Red Heart yarn and is designed by Nancy Anderson. The unicorn might seem intimidating but with the help of a crochet expert, me, you will have a finished crochet toy by the end of the day!
Making Your Own Crochet Unicorn:
I am not traditionally an amigurumi person, I love to make crochet blankets, but I am ready to reach you how to make these cute unicorns. Since the yarn called for in the pattern is a weight 1 I am working up my sample in a weight 4 so that you can see exactly what I am doing.
Through the tutorial you will learn how to start your amigurumi pattern with an adjustable ring. You will also find a video on how to weave in your ends for the adjustable ring. Along with how to start your pattern you will learn some tips for stuffing your unicorn as well. Be sure that you check your gauge so that there aren’t any holes for the stuffing to come out of.
Grab your hook and yarn and get started with me. You don’t have to use the amigurumi yarn for this pattern. You can use a worsted weight yarn like I did and still get a super cute unicorn.
Red Heart has recently released a brand new yarn, Amigurumi. Amigurumi is a weight 1 acrylic yarn. This is perfect for making amigurumi knit or crochet projects.
For each cake of Amigurumi yarn you will be able to make the two projects pictured on the front. Each cake comes with four colors that you can pull apart and use as you like.
