Jazzy the Unicorn Free Amigurumi Pattern

Unicorn Crochet Pattern Free Amigurumi

Jump to Pattern
A friend of mine recently had a baby girl, and I thought a unicorn amigurumi would make a great baby shower gift! There is something so special about giving a one-of-a-kind gift that no one else will have.

There are lots of free unicorn crochet patterns out there already, but none that were quite “me”. I set to work creating my own pattern, and Jazzy the Unicorn was born! My friend absolutely loved it, and I hope you will too. Enjoy! 🙂

How to Indent the Eyes
Cut a strand of yarn approximately 18" long. Tie a large, secure knot in one end and thread the other end through your yarn needle.
Insert your needle through the back opening of the head and sew between the two spots where you'll be placing your safety eyes (marked with strands of yarn).
Pull your strand of yarn taut, which will create indents. Fasten off with a knot and hide your yarn tail inside the head.

How to add hair for the mane and tail
Note: The photos above show a horse, but the technique is the same – just work around the horn. 🙂
Step 1 – Cut 10" long strands of yarn. How many depends on your personal preference, but I ended up using well over 100. As you can see in the 4th photo above, I only rooted hair on every other round, but filled in the gaps with one strand of yarn on each side.
I recommend finding a book or DVD case to wrap your yarn around several times, then cut along the top – it makes the process of cutting yarn strands much faster and it’s easier to produce a consistent length.
Optional: Use a ruler and a disappearing ink marker to draw a rectangle on the head as a guide for where to root the mane. You can do the same for the tail by tracing something circular (about 1.5" in diameter) on the rear.
Step 2 – Fold a strand of yarn in half, insert your hook under a stitch in the head or body. Use your hook to catch your yarn strand and pull through a loop, then pull your tail ends of the strand through the loop.
This video illustrates the technique perfectly, except I insert my hook front-to-back instead of side-to-side.
Step 3 – If giving your creation to a small child, be sure to secure each strand of hair with a knot so it can't easily be pulled out.
