Rainbow Unicorn Baby Blanket For Your Little One
I wanted this unicorn baby blanket made quickly and be warm and snuggly for the cold winter months ahead and so I chose chunky yarn to create this pattern. It has lots of texture and the colorful mane and tail will brighten up your day.
What a great idea! A cuddly warm blanket that the baby can play with and then it folds into a decorative unicorn toy or decoration for the nursery.
This blanket is perfect for a minimalist home, it’s gender-neutral and looks gorgeous when folded and rested on the armchair.
