Hannah’s Unicorn Blanket Part 4

Hannah’s Unicorn Blanket Part 4 is part of a free crochet along.

Hannah’s Unicorn Blanket Part 4 is a crochet pattern designed especially for anyone who loves unicorn’s and rainbows. 

We all need a little bit of magic in our lives.  I love the soft pastel colours for this one, but it would look gorgeous in primary colours or even in an ombre colourway.

My little niece turns 5 this January and I designed this blanket especially for her.  

“Share the art within you with the ones you love…”
