EMBROIDERING THE FACE

We’ll now be making the Uni’s face! Embroidering on crochet takes a bit of practice, but it gives your crochet unicorn lots of personality. The key to embroidering on crochet is to make sure to insert your needle through your stitches and not in a hole between stitches so your thread remains secure. It is also much easier to embroider on crochet before you’ve finished and stuffed your piece. For more tips and tricks to embroider faces on amigurumi, check out this blog post (it even has a video tutorial)!

To begin, cut a 30-inch piece of embroidery floss (using all 6 strands), thread your embroidery needle, and double knot end. If you’d rather not embroider her eyes, simply use safety eyes between rnds 7 and 8 on each side of head and just embroider her nose and mouth using steps 9 – 16.

1. Place 3 safety pins to mark arch of eye. Counting rnds from top of head, place a pin in the center of rnd 6. Count down to rnd 9, place a pin 4 sts to the right and a pin 4 sts to the left.
2. Insert threaded needle from inside of Uni Queen at left pin point and remove pin.
3. Drape the thread over the other 2 pins to visualize where you want to place your arch.
4. Insert needle into stitch above, following the arch line.
5. Bring needle up through stitch.
6. Insert needle into hole from previous backstitch. Repeat steps 5 and 6 eight more times until you reach the end of the eye.
7. To begin the eyelashes, bring needle up near the eye arch.
8. Insert needle into hole of backstitch. Repeat steps 7 and 8 until you’ve made 10 eyelashes
9. To begin the mouth, bring your needle up through st on 15th rnd.
10. Insert needle into top of rnd 16 to make a small stitch.
11. To make the cheek, bring needle up through 13th rnd, one st to the side of last st you made
12. Insert needle under first mouth stitch made.
13. Insert needle into stitch on rnd 16, one stitch to the side.
14. Bring needle up through hole of mouth stitch.
15. Bring thread across between rnds 15 and 16. Insert needle into stitch at the center of mouth.
16. Make a small stitch on rnd 14 for the nostril.
17. To set up eye for the other side, fold body flat, insert needle through 3 arch points of eye, bringing needle point out on other side.
18. Mark arch points with safety pins and repeat steps 1-16 on other side. Start with the side of the eye closest to the nose.

BODY, CONTINUED

rnds 22-30: Sc around (69 sts for 9 rnds)
Sl st 1 into the 1st st of rnd 30. Fasten off, leaving a 10-inch yarn tail for weaving in.

CROCHETING THE LEGS

The legs may seem a little daunting before you get started, but I promise you’ll get the hang of it! Photo references for each leg below each section.

Before crocheting legs, you’ll need to place 8 stitch markers as guides. Before starting, make sure you have 69 sts and that you slip stitched into the first st of rnd 30. To set-up stitch markers (sm): Starting with the st after the sl st, count 5 sts and place marker on the 5th st (sm 1, photo A). Continue counting and place marker on 11th st (sm 2), 28th st (sm 3), 34th st (sm 4), 39th st (sm 5), 45th st (sm 6), 62nd st (sm 7), and 68th st (sm 8). When you fold the body in half, the sms should line up (photo B). You’ll be crocheting the legs in this order: Leg 1, Leg 2, Leg 4, Leg 3 (photo C).

ATTACHING THE HAIR

For our amigurumi unicorn’s hair, you’ll be taking strands of 10-inch yarn in color C folded in half and threading them through the center of her head and back. Using clusters of 3 strands, you’ll be attaching 20 clusters for the mane and 4 clusters for the tail. The photos below show where you’ll be attaching the clusters.

MANE PLACEMENT
TAIL PLACEMENT
1. Using a 3×5 card, wrap yarn around lengthwise. I wrapped in batches of 20.
2. Cut only 1 side of the yarn so they’re 10-inch strands. You’ll need 72 10-inch strands of yarn for the mane and tail.
3. Insert hook between sts. Make sure to insert the hook in the same direction for each group of strands.
4. Put 3 strands over hook and pull through st.
5. Don’t pull all the way through, just make a loop big enough to pass yarn ends through.
6. Pull yarn ends through loop with your finger.
7. Pull all strands tightly until the knot is tight and flat. If one strand gets stuck, pull each yarn end until they’re all taut.
8. Insert hook between sts directly below last strand group. Repeat steps 4-8 until you’ve reached the end of the mane.
9. Repeat steps 3-8 for the tail using the placement picture as a guide.
10. Time to go to the hair salon! You may want to steam or iron your Uni Queen’s hair to straighten and then give her a trim! You can also add braids or beads as cute twist!
