I was asked in Shop the swap if I could copy a knit unicorn and make it with crochet. I spent a little over month working on him and he's finally done and I'm super proud.

Used a wide range of techniques on this guy, I crocheted the bear with thread, the unicorn double stranded worsted, the mane and tail were attached and then unraveled for a more whimsical look. The bear's face is painted and so is the unicorn's nose, his eyes (yes it's a he) are felt which are painted then glued on. His hooves are glued as well.
His horn is worsted weight and I unraveled it to make it thinner.
His legs and horns have plastic drinking straws in them to add support. And he has steel bb's in his rear to counter weight him. WHEW! That's a lot!

Here's my guy:




And the one he's based off:

It took so much work and while it's not my taste I wanted to share him as I'm proud of the resemblance. On Tuesday he'll be off to sheepblue as she's his proud new owner!
