fluffy unicorn crochet hooded scarf

Step 1
This pattern makes a super-fluffy, unbelievably soft hooded scarf. It’s also got one horn, two ears and a mane, everything you need to turn into the warmest, coziest unicorn around.

PROJECT NOTES:
   -  For this project, you will use six skeins of Loops & Threads® Cozy Wool™ yarn: two for the hood and four for the scarf.
   -  You will use less than half a skein for each of the following Craft Smart™ yarns: Butter, Fuchsia, Turquoise and Purple.
   -  You will use three hooks for this project: Size Q to crochet the hood and scarf; size P to crochet the scarf border, connect the hood and scarf, crochet the outer ears; size H to crochet the horn and inner ears with Craft Smart™ yarn.
   -  This project is sized for a girl about 6-10 years old. You can re-size it by increasing or decreasing the number of stitches in the hood and scarf.
 
MEASUREMENTS:
   -  Hood: 24 sts across and 11 rows deep; 12" high x 10½" deep.
   -  Scarf: 10 sts wide and 50 rows long; 8" wide x 70" long.
 
GAUGE: For portions worked in Cozy Wool™, 4 hdc = 4". Save time and check your gauge. 
Step 2
HOOD

Crochet with a Q (15.75mm) hook, holding together two strands of Cozy Wool™ in Fleece, ch 26 and turn.

Row 1: Hdc into the 3rd ch from the hook, then hdc across the row. Ch 2 and turn.

Row 2: Sk the first st and hdc into each of the following sts, working in both loops, until you reach the end of the row. Ch 2 and turn.

Rows 3-11: Rep Row 2.

Finishing: Don’t knot off after completing Row 11. Instead, fold the hood in half, with right sides together. Turn the corner from your final stitch, and connect the two side edges by sc in each matching stitch along the sides of the hood. Knot off, trim excess yarn and weave in all ends. Flip the hood so that the right sides are facing outward.
Step 3
SCARF
 
Working with the Q hook and holding together two strands of Cozy Wool™ in Fleece, ch 12 and turn.

Row 1: Hdc into the 3rd ch from the hook, then hdc across the row. Ch 2 and turn.

Row 2: Hdc into each st across the row, working in the back loop only. Ch 2 and turn.

Rows 3-50: Rep Row 2.

Finishing: Once finished with the final row, don’t knot off; instead, switch to your P hook, and sc around all four sides of the scarf to create a border. Sc 3 into each corner stitch as you work. Knot off, trim excess yarn and weave in all ends. 
Step 4
ASSEMBLY

Step 1 To connect the hood and scarf, find the midpoint along the length of the scarf and match it to the seam that closes the back of the hood.

Step 2 With right sides of hood and scarf together, use your P hook to connect hood and scarf by sc in each matching st across the bottom of the hood and the top of the scarf.

Step 3 Knot off, trim excess yarn and weave in ends. 
Step 5
HORN
 
Use Craft Smart™ Yarn in Butter with H hook, Ch 18 and connect into a ring.

Rnd 1: Ch 1, then sc 20 into the ring (not into each st). Sl st to connect the rnd.
 
Continue working in a spiral rather than closing each rnd with a sl st. Sc into the top loop only of each st and, as you complete each round, dec 1 to reduce the size of the ring. This will cause the horn to narrow as you continue. Continue to add to the spiral until you have only 2 or 3 sts left, then sl st to close the tip of the horn. You should have about 19 rows total. Use the yarn hook to pull the tail down inside the horn. Fill the horn with fiberfill and shape it.
 
To attach to the unicorn head, use the Clover needle threaded with Butter yarn to sew the horn to the center top of the hood, about four rows back from the front edge. 
Step 6
INNER EARS
 
Use Craft Smart™ yarn in Fuchsia with H hook, make a magic circle, then ch 1. (Alternately, you can ch 4, sl st to form a ring, then ch 1.)

Rnd 1: Working directly into the ring, sc 2, hdc 2, dc 2, ch 1, trc 3, ch 1, dc 2, hdc 2, sc 2, then sl st to close the ring.
 
Rnd 2: Ch 1, sk one st and sc into the next st, hdc 2, dc. In the next st, dc, ch 1, trc. Trc (this is the topmost point of the ear), trc, ch 1, dc into the next st, dc, hdc 2, sc 2, sl st to close the round.
 
Rnd 3: Ch 1, sk one st and sc into the next 2 sts, hdc 2, dc 2, trc, trc 3 times into the next (topmost) st, trc, dc 2, hdc 2, sc 3 and sl st to close the round. Knot off, trim excess yarn and weave in tails.
 
Repeat to make a second inner ear out of the Fuchsia yarn. Set aside. 
Step 7
OUTER EARS
Use Cozy Wool™ yarn in Fleece with the P hook, Follow the inner ear instructions above to make 2 fluffy outer ears.
 
Finishing the ears: Nestle one Fuchsia inner ear inside a fluffy Fleece outer ear. Use the Clover needle threaded with Fuchsia yarn to sew the inner ear to the outer ear, making sure not to sew all the way through the outer ear (so that the Fuchsia stitches don’t show at the back of the ear).
 
Use the Clover needle threaded with Fleece yarn to sew the ear onto the top of the hood, a couple of sts to the left of the unicorn horn. Repeat for the second ear. 
Step 8
FORELOCK

Step 1 Wrap Fuchsia yarn 10 times around the short width of a 5" x 7" journal (or notebook), then cut the loops open at one end to get 10 strands of Fuchsia yarn, all about 10" in length. Set aside.

Step 2 Repeat with all four yarns to make 7-8 total sets of strands in different colors.

Step 3 Take one set of strands and use a lark’s head knot to attach it to the front of the hood at the base of the horn.

Step 4 Continue to knot these strand sets around one side of the horn to create the forelock (the shorter part of the mane that falls over a unicorn’s face).

Step 5 Once you’ve knotted all the strands onto the hood, use scissors to trim them evenly. 
Step 9
MANE

Step 1 Repeat the steps for the forelock, except this time, wrap around the length of the journal (or notebook), so that the strands you cut are about 14" in length.

Step 2 Make 12 sets of strands in different colors. Beginning just behind the horn, use a lark’s head knot to attach each set of strands in a line running down the back of the hood, along its seam line.

Step 3 Once you’ve knotted all the strands onto the hood, use scissors to trim them evenly.
