After making my first African Flower Unicorn Lovey, I was itching to make another one. So when my cousin’s due date approached, I was more than happy to start another unicorn lovey. I got her mom (my auntie) to send me this adorable photo of her soon-to-be-born baby girl’s nursery so I could pick out some colors to go with the theme. And let me tell you, I’ve never had such a difficult time picking out colors. I even went as far as to ask my favorite Facebook crochet group for suggestions.
I finally settled on a color combo that I was more than pleased with. Isn’t the combo lovely?
I used the same techniques as I did on my previous African Flower Unicorn Lovey, with the exception of my joining method. This time around, I got smart, and did the join-as-you-go method. Here’s the link to Heidi Bears’ great tutorial on how I accomplished this. She also has a video for those of you who are more into video tutorials. The only thing I did differently, was join in EVERY stitch, rather than just the few times she instructs you to. I wanted it sturdy since this is a lovey.
I used my favorite yarn–I Love This Yarn by Hobby Lobby for its soft and workable qualities. My colors for this project included: Menthe, Ocean, Soft Pink, Pink, White, Greybeard, and Yellow for the horn.
Love this one. The colors worked out perfect.
