My daughter is just crazy for small animals. I knew from the moment that I decided to make her something that I would make her an animal for Christmas. I looked through a lot of patterns, because I didn't have the motivation to make a new pattern myself and I found a pattern for Hermione the Unicorn.
As part of a new series for the blog, "My Pattern Experience", I decided to write a review on this pattern. It was very easy to work up, and I had it completed in a short three days. I made a few small changes, using different colors, a different set of eyes, and then I modified the hairline, removing the ruffle around the hair and the tail. I used a grouping of one strand of white eyelash yarn, one pink sparkly yarn, and one variant eyelash yarn in varying shades of pink. I expanded the hairline too because I wanted the head to be fuller of hair. I kept the ruffle around the neck as well. I was super happy with the result and so was my daughter! She has named the unicorn Claire.
