Possibly the World’s Most Adorable Unicorn

Caught on camera.

Most. Adorable. Unicorn. Ever.

I was out for a walk barefoot in the grass, seizing the rare opportunity on one of autumn’s sunny days to uncurl my toes in the clover before rain and chilly weather makes that impossible, when I was startled by the sight of a small equine figure munching happily away!

What's that? You want more clover?

Obviously startled it stopped its feasting on the sweet blossoms and turned to watch me with a wary curiosity. It was then that I noticed the small golden horn winking on its forehead – no ordinary horse, this, I had discovered a unicorn! I froze, hardly daring to breathe lest the charming creature decide it was in its best interests to flee, but fortunately the unicorn seemed soothed by my stillness.

I wonder if I ought to go now?

Turning back to its lunch, the unicorn resumed munching on the clover for a few more minutes, before the magical creature decided it was time to go, and vanished in a twinkle of sunlight.

Pattern is Fran Goreham’s Clop and Ali, from June 2004 Crochet World. I’ve wanted to make one for years, and I have to say it turned out as well as I hoped it would.

    I’m looking for the clop and ali pattern, can anyone email it to me? I joined crochet world after this pattern came out and missed out on it.

    Thank you so much,

    I just love your unicorn, it’s just beautiful…I am going to be a gramma soon and would like to make it for my first grandchild. Could I possibly get a copy of the pattern sent to me???
    Thank you, Nana to be.

    A friend of mine asked me to make a Unicorn for her mother [who collects them]. I found this pattern and TOTALLY fell in love. After I’m done with hers, I need to make one for me.

    So cute!!

    “Clop and Ali” by Fran Goreham appeared in the June 2004 issue of Crochet World Magazine. I got my copy years ago; your best bet is probably to look on ebay for it. There’s a copy listed there today for $2.50!
