Meet Aneta!

Hello and welcome! My name is Aneta Izabela Wawro and I’m a pattern designer behind Crochet Arcade brand. In my pattern portfolio you can find a variety of patterns but more recently I started to specialize in designing innovative and unique patterns which most of the crocheters haven’t seen done before. I’m mostly know for my ‘book/tablet holders’ which help encourage kids to read as well as most recent best seller – Cuddle and Play Sheep Amiblanket (blanket that turns into Amigurumi when folded). My mini phone holder FREE crochet pattern is also proving to be popular to make as a gift and it additionally has a full video tutorial coming with it.

This is my first ever Guest Post so I wanted it to be special! I got a hint from lovely Rhondda at Oombawka Design that there is still loads of love for Unicorns around, so here you go. I’m very happy to share my Magical Little Unicorn Purse Pattern with you here on the Oombawka Design Crochet blog. I hope you like it. Enjoy!

    How to Make a Magical Little Unicorn Purse

    How to Crochet the Magical Little Unicorn Purse

    Pattern notes:

    • Purse is worked as one piece from the bottom up, in a round.
    • Because single crochets are worked in a round, they will naturally lean one way which will cause a slight slant. If this is an issue for you, as an alternative you can use ‘crochet knit look stitch’ otherwise called ‘waistcoat stitch’ instead which will eliminate the slant completely.
    • Attach a stitch marker on the front of the last stitch. Move this marker up on the last stitch of each round.
    • Work first stitch of the new round directly on top of the first stitch from previous round without joining to it first with sl st.

    Using MC yarn and a 4 mm (G) crochet hook (or size required for gauge):

    R1: Ch 17, sk the first ch, 1 sc in the back loop of each ch across (you will have 16 sc), rotate your project to continue working across the bottom of the foundation chain, 1 sc in the rem loop of each ch across (you will have 16 sc across the bottom). [32 sc]

    You will now be working in rounds.

    Rnd 2: 1 sc in each st around. [32 sc]

    Repeat Rnd 1 until your purse reaches the height of your mobile phone and then add 2 to 3 extra rounds (repeats of Rnd 2). For my iPhone SE I made 26 rows in total. Sl st to the first st of the round to join. Finish off and weave in your ends.

    This is how the Magical Little Unicorn Purse looks from the back. The place where we fastened off is visible but this will be hidden when we join the head to the back of the row (see image below).

    How to Crochet the Unicorn Head

    Pattern notes:

    • The initial ch 2 of each round does not count as a stitch.
    • At the end of each round, sl st to the first hdc to join (except for round 5).

    Using MC yarn and a 4 mm (G) crochet hook (or size required for gauge):

      R1: Ch 7, working in the back loops of the chains: sk the first 2 chs, 2 hdc in the next ch, 1 hdc in the next ch, 1 sc in each of the next 2 chs, 3 sc in the last ch. Rotate your project to continue working across the bottom of the foundation chain, 1 sc in the rem loop of each of the next 2 chs, 1 hdc in the rem loop of the next ch, 2 hdc in the rem loop of the last ch. Sl st to the first st to join. [7 sc, 6 hdc]

      You will now be working in rounds:

      Rnd 2: Ch 2 (does not count as a st), 3 hdc in the first st, 2 hdc in the next st, 1 hdc in next st, 1 sc in each of the next 2 sts, 2 sc in the next st, 3 sc in the next st, 2 sc in the next st, 1 sc in each of the next 2 sts, 1 hdc in the next st, 2 hdc in the next st, 3 hdc in the last st. Sl st to the first st to join. [11 sc, 12 hdc].

      Rnd 3: Ch 2 (does not count as a st), 1 hdc in the first st, 2 hdc in each of the next 4 sts, 1 hdc in the next st, 1 sc in each of the next 5 sts, 3 sc in the next st, 1 sc in each of the next 5 sts, 1 hdc in the next st, 2 hdc in each of the next 4 sts, 1 hdc in the last st. Sl st to the first st to join. [13 sc, 19 hdc]

      Rnd 4: Ch 2 (does not count as a st), (1 hdc in each of the next 2 sts, 2 hdc in the next st) 3 times. 1 hdc in each of the next 5 sts. (2 hdc in the next st, 1 hdc in the next st) 2 times. 2 hdc in the next st, 1 hdc in each of the next 5 sts. (2 hdc in the next st, 1 hdc in each of the next 2 sts) 3 times. Sl st to the first st to join. [42 hdc].

      Ch 2 and slip stitch in the next st.

      Rnd 5: Ch 2 (does not count as a st), 1 hdc in each of the next 4 sts, 2 dc in the next st, ch 2 and 1 sl st in the next st (see image above), 1 sl st in each of the next 10 sts (mark the tenth st with a stitch marker – this is where we will starting sewing the muzzle later), 1 sl st in each of the next 20 sts, 1 sl st in the next st and ch 2, 2 dc in the next st (see image below), 1 hdc in each of the next 4 sts. Sl st to the top of the initial ch 2 to join for this round. Finish off and weave in ends. [32 sl st, 8 hdc, 4 dc, 2 ch2sp]

      TIP: When weaving in the ends, use starting end to close any gaps around the starting chains in R1.

      Joining the Unicorn Head to the Purse

      Using MC yarn and a 4 mm (G) crochet hook (or size required for gauge):

      To join the top of the head to the back row of the pouch:

      1. Start by making a slip knot on your hook (image 1).
      2. Insert the hook in the top of ch-2 made on the right side of the head, facing the RS of the sts (image 2).

      • Flatten the pouch and assess which 15 stitches of the back row are centrally at the back of the pouch. Because of the slight slant, the last st where we fastened off will not be exactly at the side of the pouch (unless you used a waistcoat stitch method instead). My first stitch on the right side of the back happened to be 2 sts before the fasten off bump as shown on the photo below.
        Magical Little Unicorn Purse Pattern.  My first stitch on the right side of the back happened to be 2 sts before the fasten off bump as shown on the photo below.
        • Insert the hook in to your first st on the back of the pouch (facing the front of the pouch), yo and pull through all the loops on your hook to join the head to the pouch with sl st.
        Magical Little Unicorn Purse Pattern. 
 Insert the hook in to your first st on the back of the pouch (facing the front of the pouch), yo and pull through all the lps on your hook to join the head to the pouch with sl st.
        • Continue joining the head making 15 slip stitches in total (including top of the starting ch-2 from round 5 which is in the middle of the head).
        • Mark the 4th (fourth) sl st and the 11th sl st after you make them with stitch markers (this is where you will add the ears later).
        • Finish off the yarn.

          Tip: Rather then weaving in the ends from both sides, use them to re-enforce the sides of the joint by making overcast stitches several times, very tightly over 2 sl sts on both edges. This is where we will attach the chain strap on the end.

          The Ears

          Pattern notes:

          • Ears are made directly on top of the purse.
          • When making ears, ch 1 at the end of each row.

          Ear 1: Make a slip knot on your hook, leaving an 8 inch long tail. This will be used to sew overcast stitches around the edges of the ears to make the edges neater. Start the first ear in the fourth sl st counting from the right side (there will be a gap of 5 sts between the ears). See image below.

          Ear 1: Make a slip knot on your hook, leaving an 8 inches long tail. This will be used to sew overcast stitches around the edge of ears to make the edges neater. Start the first ear in the fourth sl st counting from the right side (there will be a gap of 5 sts between the ears). See image below.

          R1: 2 sc in each of the next 2 sts, turn. (4 sc).

          R2: 1 sc in each st across, turn. (4 sc).

          R3: Sc2tog two times, turn. (2 sc).

          R4: Sc2tog (1 sc).

          • Ch 1 and fasten off.
          • Weave in the end back and forth throughout the middle of the rows to minimise the gaps.
          • Use the other yarn end (long one) to make overcast sts, close together, over the edge of the ear.
            Use the other yarn end (long one) to make overcast sts, close together, over the edge of the ear.

            Ear 2: Skip 5 sts and start making the second ear in the next marked st (the 11th sl st). Follow all of the instructions as for the first ear.

            The Muzzle

            Using CC2 (silver) and 4mm hook make a magic ring (check out my magic ring tutorial).

            Rnd 1: Ch 3 (counts as 1 dc) and make 5 dc, all in center of the magic ring and turn. (6 dc)

            Rnd 2: Ch 3, (counts as 1 dc) and make 1 dc in the first st, make 2 dc in each of the remaining sts. (12 dc)

            • Finish off leaving a longer yarn end (around 10 inches). Do not weave it in.

            Sewing on the Muzzle

            • With CC2 make a slip knot on your hook. Join the round part of the muzzle to the bottom part of the head using sl st method.
            • Clip off the yarn and fasten off.
            Thread the long yarn end from the right side of the muzzle on the large eyed needle and sew the straight, top part of it to the head with an overcast stitch.
            • Thread the long yarn end from the right side of the muzzle on the large eyed needle and sew the straight, top part of it to the head with an overcast stitch.

            The Magical Unicorn Horn

            Pattern notes:

            • Horn is made in a round.
            • Attach a stitch marker on the front of the last stitch. Move this marker up on the last stitch of each round.
            • Work first stitch of the new round directly on top of the first stitch from previous round without joining to it first with sl st.

            Using Color CC2 (gold) and 4 mm (G) crochet hook make a magic ring.

            Rnd 1: 4 sc in the center of the magic ring [4 sc].

            Rnd 2: 1 sc in each st around. [4 sc]

              • Tighten the magic ring and weave in the ends securely to prevent the ring coming undone.

              Rnd 3: Repeat Rnd 2 (4 sc).

              Rnd 4: (2 sc in the next st, 1 sc in the next st) 2 times. [6 sc]

              Rnd 5: 1 sc in each st around. [6 sc]

              Rnd 6: (1 sc in each of the next 2 sts, 2 sc in the next st) 2 times. [8 sc]

              Rnd 7: 1 sc in each st around. [8 sc]

                  • Finish off leaving a long yarn end to sew the horn on the Unicorn.

                  How to Sew on the Unicorn Horn

                  • Thread the yarn end leftover from the bottom of the horn onto a large-eyed needle.
                  • Using an overcast st, start sewing the horn to the top middle 3 stitches, between the ears.
                  • Then move on to sew on the remaining part of the horn over the height of the hdc below, trying to keep it as round as possible.

                  • Finish off and weave in the end.

                  How to Add the Eyes

                  • Sew on the eyes as pictured below (or whichever way you like).
                  • If you don’t feel confident enough in sewing the facial features just use glue on the flat back crystal rhinestones/gems.

                  Optional Heart

                  • I’ve added a little heart to the bottom of the pouch to make it a little bit more interesting. Star would also be a great applique to use.
                  • To make a little heart, make a magic ring, using CC3 and 4 mm (G) crochet hook.
                  • Make following sts in the centre of the ring: 1 ch, 1 hdc, 2 dc, 1 tr, 2 dc, 3 hdc, 1 ch, 3 hdc, 2 dc, 1 tr, 2 dc, 1 hdc. Sl st to the first ch to join.
                  • Tighten the magic ring; cut the yarn leaving a longer end and fasten off.
                  • Tie a knot with the other yarn end to secure the magic ring and use the longer end to sew on the heart in place.
