This unicorn pattern as so much fun to work up, especially for the mane and tail. I started by creating all of the body pieces and assembling everything but the wings. I wasn’t sure if I wanted to include the wings or not, so I made them and waited until the end to attach them. For the hair, I used little bonbons of acrylic yarn. Basically, I attached each strand of hair as a tassel on the head and then I brushed the yarn out until it was fluffy. Finally, I used a little trick I learned to make the hair fall softly and add a little bit of shine to it. I even gave Aurora a little haircut to finish! The entire process was much easier than it sounds, and it will be explained in the PDF. This is version 2 of the unicorn pattern, to better suit my changed style.
