The unicorn hat features a parade of unicorns. Since I like to avoid colorwork with three strands, I used the double stitch technique to embroider the horns on after finishing the hat.

Included in the pattern are some links to learn the double stitch technique -- all you’ll need is a tapestry needle and gold yarn. If you’re comfortable with colorwork, you can feel free to use three strands instead!

The unicorns themselves will require floats as you’re following the chart.

This is a very customizable pattern, with options to change out colors and brim lengths if you like. If you have any questions, I’m happy to answer them :slightly_smiling_face:
