PREAMBLE
Hannah’s Unicorn Blanket is a crochet pattern designed especially for anyone who loves unicorn’s and rainbows.  We all need a little bit of magic in our lives.  I love the soft pastel colours for this one, but it would look gorgeous in primary colours or even in an ombre colourway.

My little niece turns 5 this January and I designed this blanket especially for her.  

Size: Approximately  105 x 105 cm (41.5 x 41.5 inches).
Skill: Easy/confident beginners – stitches will range from easy to slightly more advanced - but I have links to photo and video tutorials in the pattern if you need help.
What you will crochet: A soft and snugly rainbow blanket with a large solid granny square in the center with a unicorn applique - with a simple picot border.
