Crochet Tutorial: Unicorn Slippers

Crochet Tutorial: Unicorn Slippers

“Perhaps the most wondrous of all mystical creatures, the unicorn is a symbol of miracles and enchantment.”

The unicorn gives us the power to believe that anything is possible. These fun and mythical creatures are what fantasies and dreams are made of. This pattern will transform a basic pair of slippers into unicorns that is fun for all ages!

Not looking to make unicorn slippers? Transform yours into other creatures with a few modifications! My video tutorial and FREE written pattern gives instructions on how to make 3 different sizes. I think we all could use some cozy unicorn slippers. Am I right?
