I got several requests for a unicorn beanie.
And this is the result.

As usual it can be knit from 4-ply sock yarn of any manufacturer.
I used Wollbutt söckli, which might not be available where you live.
But that is not important :-)
You can also use Acrylic yarn of similar weight.
For bigger sizes you can also use 5-ply yarn.

You need about 35 g of each color.

It has my typical corrugated dotted ribbing, a herringbone edge, followed by a starry border pattern which surrounds the beautiful band of big unicorns.
The upper part of the beanie shows 7 prancing little unicorns.

For bigger sizes or a more slouchy fit you can also use 5-ply yarn and or a bigger needle size.

As it has only two colors throughout the whole hat, it is also suitable for stranded knitting beginners because it is easier to knit than a project with many color changes.

Enjoy and happy knitting!

Mehrere Leute haben mich nach einer Einhornmütze gefragt. Hier ist sie!

Sie kann in 4-fach Sockengarn oder Acrylgarn in ähnlicher Stärke gestrickt werden.
Man braucht ca. 35 g jeder Farbe.

Sie hat meinen typischen Karobund, eine Fischgrätbordüre und eine Sternchenbordüre umrahmt die wunderschönen großen Einhörner.
Obendrauf sind 7 weitere kleine Einhörner.

Für größere Grössen könnt Ihr auch 5-fach Garn und/oder eine größere Nadelstärke verwenden.

Da die Mütze “nur” zweifarbig ist, ist sie auch für Anfänger der Mehrfarbenstrickerei geeignet.

Viel Spass beim Nachstricken!
