Bel (or rather Beau) the unicorn

My crochet hook has been flying of late, with so many inspirational ideas out there, for cute animals . . . who could resist?  Not me!

Awwww, what a cutie, eh?  This little chap, from the book “Unicorns, Dragons and more fantasy amigurumi” (gifted to me at Christmas by my daughter).

Pattern is by ANABU CROCHET and her version, in the book, is called “Bel”, with a pretty pale pink muzzle & hooves, and a multi-coloured rainbow mane & tail.  I decided to make my baby unicorn a little boy unicorn, so I’m calling him Beau.

I gave him a variagated mane & tail, using Marriner DK, and didn’t bother adding the extra detail (re pattern) on his little horn.  I think he looks perfect just the way he is.

He turned out so cute, I am going to crochet a second one, because I reckon Beau needs a little girl unicorn to keep him company.   Stay tuned!
