The best part? You can make it yourself!
Move over, mermaid blankets, this unicorn throw is taking over.
That's right, there's a blanket out there that you can wrap around yourself and instantly escape to a magical world (also known as the couch). This DIY unicorn blanket a.k.a. the cutest thing we've seen in a long time, has ears, hair and of course, a horn, making it a fan favorite on Pinterest.
The best part is you can completely DIY this yourself, so long as you have some crocheting skills. If you don't, now is the time to learn!
The pattern is available on Ravelry from designer MJ's Off the Hook Designs, for $6, and customers will receive the PDF pattern for not just the blanket, but also a cowl in toddler and adult sizes.
To turn your kid into a cozy unicorn all you need is 13 (19 for adult sizes) skeins of bulky yarn (suggested: Bernat Softee Chunky), a 16mm Q hook and a 9mm hook.
The pattern is considered advanced beginner, and can take up to eight hours depending on skill level. The blanket will work up quickly, but MJ personally suggests wrapping the yarn around a piece of strong cardboard or a book, and then cutting the lengths at either end to speed up the fringing process.
Even if it does take you a while, it seems like everyone thinks it's worth the time. "That unicorn is truly a fabulous creation," one woman wrote on MJ's Instagram page. Another woman also raved, "Bought this pattern the second I saw it! SO excited to make it! Your patterns are so easy to follow I know I can't fail."
If you're not into unicorns (sad), MJ has all sorts of adorable blanket patterns you can try, including an owl and wolf.
Head over to MJ's Instagram to see more, and head over to Ravelry for the pattern!
