In May, I showed you this photo
A little boy unicorn, I christened “Beau”, crocheted following the pattern by ANABU CROCHET, published in the book “Unicorns, Dragons and more fantasy amigurumi”.
Reading your comments, I realised I wasn’t alone in thinking that Beau needed a pretty lady friend to keep him company. Unicorns might be mythical creatures, but they’re very sociable creatures, and poor little Beau was feeling very forlorn. So . . . out came my hook, and . . .
Belle was born! I chose a light purple instead of baby pink because I didn’t want to go for the cliché of “blue for a boy, pink for a girl”.
However, I did let rip with the really bright variagated Marriner DK yarn for mane and tail.
Now, whether or not there will be any baby unicorns remains to be seen. Beau & Belle have already left home . . .
but are living in the house just opposite, so I should get regular news. Here they are, all packaged up as part of a food basket . . . a gift to our neighbours who got married on Saturday. Neighbours being the parents of my little sewing apprentice, Cléo, and her toddler sister, Mona . . . and who, I am sure, will claim Beau & Belle as their own.
