Zoo Blog Hop Day 13 – Mystical, Magical Unicorns!

unicorn crochet pattern

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.
