Crochet Unicorn Heart Pillow

Crochet Unicorn Heart Pillow

 

If you are like me, you have been obsessed with the Heartsprinkle Pillow Pattern by Heartsprinkle!  All of her adorable modifications (mods), and my nieces’ obsession with Unicorns inspired me to make this pillow!

 

What you need:

 

Heartsprinkle Pillow Pattern

1 ball Bernat Blanket Yarn in vintage white

Small amounts of various blanket yarn colors for the mane (the left overs from making 2 pillows are more than enough!)

Small amount of black worsted weight yarn

Chunky Yarn in gold or color of your choosing for the horn. I used I Love This Chunky in Honey.

Poly-fil

H & J Crochet hooks

Yarn Needle

 

Level: Intermediate

 

Stitches used:

 

Magic Circle

Single Crochet – sc

Surface slip stitch

 

Heart

 

Make as instructed.

 

Stop at Row 17 – you are going to surface slip stitch the eyes as follows:

 

H hook

 

With the front facing you count up 9 rows on the right hand side.  Count 3 stitches from the middle and surface slip stitch with the black worsted yarn a sleepy eye in row 9.  With the tail that remains, sew through the middle of the slip stitches to cover up any white showing through and sew on lashes.  Do the same on the left side, but keep in mind that you will be on Row 10 instead of 9 because the heart is worked in a spiral.

 

Finish the heart as instructed.

 

Alternate – Make heart in its entirety and chain 9 with black sew on to heart in the same places as described above.  Use ends to sew on and make lashes.  This will result in a thicker eye.

 

 

Mane curls

 

Make 3 in colors of your choosing
