Okay so this was challenging but a lot of fun!  I found this epic sparkly yarn that just screamed MAGIC  Cheesy It's super soft and I am kind of in love with it. The ears took me foreverrrr to get right - my bin is full of "cat" ears  Wink and the horn is stuffed with polyfill.

I couldn't decide between a loose mane or a tamer plaited mane (dressage unicorn!) so I made both.

Version one;







Version two;









I'm still tweaking the pattern, trying to fix all those "invisible" problems - you know the kind that no one else but the person who made something can see?, lol.   But overall I kinda dig the way they turned out and so did the recipient, so that's what matters the most I think.  Cheesy Cheesy
