Zoo Blog Hop Day 13 – Mystical, Magical Unicorns!

Unicorn Crochet Patterns

In the Middle Ages, Europeans believed that the unicorn was a creature of great intelligence. Merely touching the unicorn’s horn could heal your wounds. Only a pure person could see a unicorn for more than a moment. Over time, the myth of the unicorn evolved to represent magic, hope, and radiance. Today we have three different types of unicorns in crochet – plush toy, fanny pack, and blanket.

Last Day to get the “I LOVE NATURE” Amigurumi Pattern Super Pack

The Super Pack is going away! 

Hey, yarn buddy! I hope you are having a great day! I am jumping in this morning to remind you that today is the last day of “I love nature” AMI SUPER PACK, that also means you have only a few hours left to grab the unique copy of 30+ fabulous designer amigurumi patterns. 

The Super Pack won’t be available after 9:59 a.m. tomorrow morning (EST); that also means your chance to save over $130 in buying patterns won’t be there anymore! 

There are so many beautiful crochet toy patterns from the best designers and bloggers that I do not want you to miss out! 

Get The Super Pack Now Before It Gone Forever:  https://transactions.sendowl.com/products/78520878/01FB722D/purchase?r=209390

Plus, when you pick up the “I love nature” AMI SUPER PACK with my link, I also have another bonus for you. Purchase through this link https://transactions.sendowl.com/products/78520878/01FB722D/purchase?r=209390, send a copy of your order number to lisa@myfingersfly.com, and I will send you a coupon for any free pattern from My Fingers Fly.

Included in the bundle is the Bunny Nap Buddy Crochet Pattern. Your toddler can use it as a blanket at naptime, and then it folds up to fit inside the bunny cover for a plush toy the rest of the day.
