Do you ever have an idea that will not leave you alone until you execute it? That’s how I feel about this new hat pattern. I have two orders I should be working on, but I couldn’t focus on either one of them until this hat pattern came to fruition.
After the release of my Flower Crown Animal Hats, I heard the suggestion of releasing a child size hat pattern. So here it is. I am still working on the adult size pattern as well as the idea to make a more masculine version. Hopefully, I will be able to bring that to you next week.
Flower Crown Unicorn Hat
I (5.50 mm) hook
H (5.00 mm) hook
G (4.00 mm) hook
Poly-fil (small amount for stuffing horn)
Stich marker (I generally just use a small piece of another color of yarn.)
I Love This Yarn: White, Gray Mist, Light Sage, Pink, Purple, White Sparkle
SC: Single Crochet
HDC: Half double Crochet
FPSC: front post single crochet
BPSC: back post single crochet
SS: Slip Stitch
This hat is child size. For sizes newborn-toddler see this post.
Beginning Ch-2 DOES NOT count as first stitch.
Main Hat (I hook):
Round 1: With White, 12 HDC in a magic loop, SS to the top of beginning CH. (12)
Round 2: CH2, 2HDC in each HDC around, SS to the top of beginning CH. (24)
Round 3: CH2, *2HDC in the first ST, 1HDC in the next HDC*, repeat from * around, SS to the top of beginning CH. (36)
Round 4: CH2, *2HDC in the first ST, 1HDC in the next two HDC*, repeat from * around. SS to the top of beginning CH. (48)
Round 5: CH2, *2HDC in the first ST, 1HDC in the next three HDC, repeat from * around. SS to the top of beginning CH. (60)
Round 6-15: CH2, HDC in each ST around, SS to the top of beginning CH. (60)
Round 16: CH1, SC in each ST around, SS to the top of beginning CH. (60)
Round 17-19: CH1, FPSC around first ST, *BPSC around next ST, FPSC around next ST*, Repeat from * to * around, SS to the top of beginning CH. Fasten off and weave in ends. (60)
Ears (I hook, make 2):
Row 1: With white, CH 2, SC in second CH from hook, CH 1, turn.
Row 2: 2 SC in first SC, 1 SC in next SC. CH1, turn.
Row 3-8: 2 SC in first SC, 1 SC in each remaining SC, CH 1 , turn.
SC evenly around ear working 3 SC in each corner. Fasten off, leaving a long tail for sewing.
The horn is crocheted in a spiral. DO NOT slips stitch to join rounds. I like to place my stitch marker in the beginning stitch of each round to keep track of where I am.
Round 1: With Gray mist, SC four in magic ring. (4)
Round 2: (2 SC in next SC, 1 SC in next) twice. (6)
Round 3: SC in each SC around. (6)
Round 4: (2 SC in next SC, 1 SC in next two SC) twice. (8)
Round 5: SC in each SC around. (8)
Round 6: (2 SC in next SC, 1 SC in next three SC) twice. (10)
Round 7 – 14: SC in each SC around. (10)
At the end of round 14, SS into beginning SC. Fasten off leaving a long tail for sewing. Stuff the horn firmly.
Leaves (H-hook, make 4)
With Light Sage, CH 6, SS in second CH from hook, SC in next CH, HDC in next CH, DC in next CH, 3 DC in last CH. On other side of CH, DC in next CH, HDC in next CH, SC in next CH, SS in beginning CH. Fasten off and leave long tail for sewing.
Side Roses (Make 2)
Row 1: With pink CH 20, SC in second CH from hook, (CH 2, skip one CH, SC in next CH) across.
Row 2: SS into CH-2 space, (3 HDC in CH-2 space, SS into same CH-2 space, SS into next CH-2 space) twice. For the rest of the flower alternate 4 HDC and 5 HDC in CH-2 spaces.
For the middle rose, use purple, ch 30, and follow the same pattern as above.
For the mane, I used the white sparkle yarn. I cut strands about 10 inches in length and followed these instructions from Repeat Crafter Me (they're towards the bottom of the page). I only did the mane for about 7 rows. I didn’t want something that weighed the hat down too much.
I hope you all find this pattern easy to follow. If you have any questions, feel free to ask. As always, I would love to see your work. Use the #viewfrommyhook on Instagram.
