INSTRUCTIONS
The Stitches
Written in US term
magic ring
ch – chain
sl st – slip stitch
sc – single crochet
dc – double crochet inc – increase
dec – decrease
yo – yarn over
sk – skip one stitch
bst – bead stitch
Special Stitches:
Bead Stitch – (See photo tutorial below under the blanket pattern) Insert
hook behind the previous dc from front to back, pull through a long loop (2
loops on hook), yo (3 loops on hook), insert the hook again behind the same
dc from front to back and pull another loop (4 loops on hook), yo and pull
through all 4 loops.
Gauge
Keep the tension relaxed, if your work is too tight, the ends will curl. Use one
size up hook to make the foundation chain.

Using the yarn weight and hook size suggested in this pattern will
create a blanket size 100cm by 80cm (39.5in by 31.5in).
Gauge for a 10cm by 10cm (3.9in by 3.9in) area is 5 rows by 8 stitches.
About
For your convenience, this pattern contains the illustrated tutorial at
the beginning, and print-friendly pattern with no pictures and large print at
the end.

This beautiful 3 in 1 baby blanket acts as a toy, a blanket and a
decoration for your loved one's room. Unfold it and keep your child warm
and snuggly while he is entertained playing with the unicorn. Once done,
fold it back and it instantly transforms into a decorative item that you can
rest on the arm chair or the side of the cot.
Made with chunky / bulky yarn, this blanket is warm and soft and
perfect for the cold months ahead. The natural neutral colors are suitable for
both girls and boys and will fit with any color scheme you might have.
Crochet the mane and tail in the color of your choice to suit your decor and
taste.
This pattern will create a baby blanket size 100cm by 80cm (46in by
31in), but you can make yours as small or as large as you like by changing the
number of the starting chains and the number of rows.
Depending how big you choose the blanket to be, there are 2 different
techniques of folding it: the gate fold technique and the tri fold technique.
For this size of blanket, I used the gate fold Technique explained in detail at
the end.
1. For small to medium blankets such as pram blankets you should
choose the gate fold technique
2. for larger blankets such as baby blankets use the tri fold technique

Supplies Used For This Pattern
 9 x 100g balls of chunky (bulky) yarn in white for the blanket and head
 part (less than half) of a 100g ball of dk yarn (light worsted yarn) in
white for ears and legs
 part (less than half) of a 100g ball of dk yarn (light worsted yarn) in
gray for the horn and legs
 various colors (a few yards) for the mane, tail and flowers (I used
leftover multicolored and sparkle yarn from my previous projects, but
you can use any color you wish and fits your needs and decor)
 polyfill stuffing
 crochet hooks sizes 6.5mm, 6mm, 4mm and 3mm
 blunt sewing needle to fit the yarn used to stitch the parts together
 1.2mm black doll safety eyes
 scissors
The Pattern
The blanket is made out of 7 different patterns:
- 1 x blanket
- 1 x head
- 2 x ears
- 4 x legs
- 1 x horn
- 3 flowers
- 18 curly strings (10 for the mane and 8 for the tail)
- 3 buttons

The Blanket
The blanket is crocheted with bulky yarn and consists of alternating
rows of double crochet stitches and bead stitches.
The pattern requires an even number of chains plus 3 chains that count
as the first double crochet stitch (in this case I made 70 chains + 3 chains).
If you are a tight crocheter, use a larger hook size to make the foundation
chain (in this case I used a 6.5mm hook for the initial chains, then a 6mm
hook to complete the blanket).
How to crochet the Bead Stitch
The bead stitch is crocheted around the previous double crochet post.
Because I used bulky yarn, 2 loops were enough to create it, if you are using
a lighter yarn weight, you might want to pull 4 loops through.
Start by making a double crochet stitch. Insert hook behind it from front to
back, pull through a long loop (2 loops on hook), yo (3 loops on hook), insert
the hook again behind the same dc from front to back and pull another loop
(4 loops on hook), yo and pull through all 4 loops.

Putting The Blanket Together
With gray yarn, sew on the horn to the head between rows 10 and 12,
above the eyes.

17
Sew on the nostrils and mouth with gray yarn.
Sew on the ears on either side of the horn with white yarn.
18

To join the mane:
Row 1: sc in 5 of the curly strings, turn
Row 2: ch 1, sc in each stitch, turn
19

Row 3: ch 1, sc through next stitch and a curly string, sc in following stitch
and a second curly string, continue until you joined all 5 curly strings, fasten
off and leave a long tail.
Sew the mane to the head, starting from the back base of the horn.
20

This is how the end result should look like
Sew on the flowers at the front base of the horn
21

Tie the buttons on one side of the blanket, one in each of the two corners
and one in the middle equally spaced between the two.
Using the gate fold technique shown at the beginning, fold the blanket
lengthwise then using the tri fold technique, fold the blanket widthwise. You
will end with a square.
Mark the corners with a safety pin or a piece or yarn, unfold the
blanket and sew on the legs. Make sure the front legs are sewn at the edge
of the blanket as you see in the photo below
22

Now sew the head between the front legs, right in the middle, on the side of
the blanket where the edge is.
To join the tail, first run string through all 8 curly strings and tie a knot,
then use the rest of the yarn to sew it between the back legs, adjacent to
the head.
23

This is how your blanket should look like once finished.
24

How To Fold Your Blanket
Step 1: lay the blanket with the wrong side up

S tep 2: fold each side up the the center
Step 3: tie up the buttons by sliding them through the stitches on the
opposite side.
25

Step 4: divide the length of the blanket in three imaginary parts and fold the
end of the blanket (the one that doesn't have the head) like in the picture
below
Step 4: fold the blanket again in half as in the picture
26

Step 5: fold the blanket in half once more
Once folded you can rest it on the side of the sofa, cot, armchair etc, or roll it
inwards and rest it anywhere you like.

I hope you found my tutorial easy to follow, if you have any issues with
the pattern, please don't hesitate to contact me, I am more than happy to
help. Please see below the printable large print pattern.
Happy Crocheting!

The Printable Pattern
The Blanket
The blanket is crocheted with bulky yarn and consists of
alternating rows of double crochet stitches and bead stitches.
The pattern requires an even number of chains plus 3
chains that count as the first double crochet stitch (in this
case I made 70 chains + 3 chains).
If you are a tight crocheter, use a larger hook size to
make the foundation chain (in this case I used a 6.5mm hook
for the initial chains, then a 6mm hook to complete the
blanket).
How to crochet the Bead Stitch
The bead stitch is crocheted around the previous double
crochet post. Because I used bulky yarn, 2 loops were enough
to create it, if you are using a lighter yarn weight, you might
want to pull 4 loops through.
Start by making a double crochet stitch. Insert hook
behind it from front to back, pull through a long loop (2 loops
on hook), yo (3 loops on hook), insert the hook again behind
the same dc from front to back and pull another loop (4
loops on hook), yo and pull through all 4 loops.

the blanket widthwise. You will end with a square.
Mark the corners with a safety pin or a piece or yarn, unfold
the blanket and sew on the legs. Make sure the front legs are
sewn at the edge of the blanket.
Now sew the head between the front legs, right in the
middle
To join the tail, first run string through all 8 curly strings and
tie a knot, then use the rest of the yarn to sew it between the
back legs, adjacent to the head.
Now fold the blanket and you are finished.
Happy Crocheting!
