The whole world seems to be head over heels for anything unicorn-related these days, which is totally cool with us. The magical unicorn latte trend is taking off on Instagram, and the unicorn hot chocolate is becoming more and more popular. Now there’s another unicorn-related thing to get excited about. Get ready to make your very own unicorn crochet blanket.
The next time you’re cuddling up on the couch, think about how divine it would be to wrap yourself up in some unicorn goodness. These are the materials you’ll need: 13 skeins of bulky yarn for a kid-size, or 19 skeins for an adult, a 16mm Q hook, and a 9mm hook. We have to warn you that the pattern required to make this beauty, which is available on Raverly, is more advanced than the norm, so you may have to get some knitting skills under your belt before you give it a shot.
But just look at it. We need this in our life.
The yarn recommended to knit the blanket is Bernat Softee Chunky Yarn, and you can buy it on Amazon for only $8. In total, it takes about eight hours to create this blanket, but it’s totally worth the time. If you need some inspiration, head over to the Instagram page of MJ’s Off the Hook Designs, who’s responsible for this invention. MJ will give you all the tips you need, and you can also see the unicorn blanket in action.
“Unicorns have more fun!!” MJ writes. And we believe her. If there were ever a perfect time to learn how to knit, it would be now, because we can’t think of a single reason why we don’t all deserve a cozy unicorn blanket.
