At the end of a rainbow you will find a magical colourful unicorn. Designed by Amanda Berry @fluffandfuzz, the unicorn is knitted on single pointed needles (not in the round). Aurora is worked in acrylic 4 ply yarns, although you can use DK (double knitting/light worsted) if you prefer. You only need to know 4 stitches: knit, purl, kfb and k2tog. For confident beginners and above, other techniques used include casting on and off, knitting stripes, and seaming to finish.
- Instructions for making the unicorn plus photos.
