Unicorn Hooded Pocket Scarf Knitting Pattern

From designer Heidi May of The Velvet Acorn comes yet another beautiful pattern for a unicorn hooded scarf that can be made for all ages.

It is a versatile design as you can make it without the unicorn features: ears, horn, and mane. Additionally, the fringe at the bottom of the pockets is also optional.

I loved working the unicorn knitting pattern for both of my nieces. I made one in a shimmery white with a pink mane and fringe and another with the same shimmery white but with a purple mane and fringe.

I used a pastel variegated yarn to make both horns.

When I gave my nieces their unicorn hooded scarves their eyes lit right up and they wrapped up in them immediately!

I’ve started work on one for my best friend because she is definitely young at heart and loves unicorns.

I’m keeping hers a little more subtle with an earthy off-white yarn and a very light coral and teal combination making up the mane, fringe, and horn. I want to give her some color without making it too young for her.

Stitch markers would probably be helpful.

US 13 (9.0 mm)
