The Rainbow Unicorn Hat was born when my daughter (just 5 at the time) “needed” a unicorn hat. She had very specific ideas about what was required. It had to have a rainbow mane, and she found a special skein of hand spun yarn in my stash called unicorn tails. It was spun by a local artisan and was just perfect for this project. So of course, I recommend you use something similar for a beautiful heirloom piece.
