Sparkle, the Unicorn

Every little girl dreams of having her very own unicorn, and a few big girls too. Soon after I’d finished designing this little lady, my eldest daughter of 27yrs old came to visit, saw it and refused to give it back. It now lives with her. Now if that isn’t proof, then I don’t know what is.

Designed to have pose-able limbs with instructions included on how to create them and a lovely long mane and tail, she’ll provide hours of fun for the little lady in your life.

Pattern includes detailed written instructions using British crochet terms with American terms in brackets where applicable. A listing of materials needed and stitches used is also provided along with pattern notes containing links to helpful Youtube sites for mastering an invisible decrease.

Stitches to know: mr – magic ring dc – double crochet (US – single crochet) dec – decrease (invisible) ch - chain slst – slip stitch

I am from Johannesburg, South Africa.

Some would comment that I live in my own little world of imaginary creatures and all things fey. To them I ask, does the wind not exist simply because we do not see it?

Whether it be an old bottle cap, a skein of yarn, scraps of material, a piece of wire or a block of wood, I love to spend time creating things of whimsy that I trust will be found to be fun, refreshing and enjoyable to others.

I am also a published cross stitch designer having done work for and with Quick & Easy Cross Stitch magazine (UK), Cross Stitcher magazine (UK), Jeanette Crews Design (USA) as well as DMC Paris.
