Make their uni­corn dreams come true

Jane Burns’ imag­i­na­tive uni­corn hoodie is as fun to make as it is to wear – it’s sure to be a hit with the kids!

Simply Knitting - - Cast On -

Uni­corns are so on-trend right now! Lit­tle ones will be over­joyed with their very own mag­i­cal hoodie – we just might have to knit one up in an adult size... Use plain stock­ing stitch, mixed with stand- out stripes to knit the base of the hoodie. Em­bel­lish­ments like the hair, horn and ears use a mix of cro­chet, clever shap­ing and neat sewing to com­plete the look.
