Tiny rainbow unicorn – crochet amigurumi – free pattern

A while ago, I showed you on facebook a little unicorn in cross stitch I had made (very cute, but a little bit rude :p) using a pattern from Smallstitchshop. I loved it so much that I decided to bring it to “life” a little bit more by making an amigurumi based on it. 

Meet Tinycorn !

  1. Thank you! I just made this unicorn but in yellow and instead of gold thread I gave him bright pink feet and a yellow horn (because I didn’t have any white or gold in the house and wanted to get started right away! Also I sewed eyes on with thread rather than using glass ones. He’s very cute and so quick and easy with this great pattern! Thank you so much for sharing!

    • You’re welcome ! I’d be glad to see your lil’unicorn, plus I’ll soon make a gallery with all of them, so if you’d like, you can send me a picture to ahooka[at]ahookamigurumi.com (you just need to replace [at] by @ ).

      Thanks for your nice comment and welcome here !

  2. […] dare to start a project. Until about three days ago. I found the pattern for a super cute unicorn. I thought it would be a nice little project to start with. I could not be more wrong. The body and […]

  3. Hi! i recently made this adorable unicorn using Rainbow Loom bands. A lot of kids liked it and are asking for the pattern. I lead them to this page, but i had to tweak some parts (like lessen rows and stitches) to make it more proportioned to the bigger stitches that the bands make. Is it okay to share the edited pattern to others but give full credit to you? Many thanks!

    • Of course ! :) And I’d be glad to see how it turns out with Rainbow Loom bands if you have a picture to share ! I know nothing about that technique ! See you :)

        • Hi Loomy Mommy!

          Wow, I wonder how Making with loom bands would turn out, did it come out super large compared to ahooka’s version? Please would you be able to send me your tweaked loom band pattern of this? I really would love to try it out and I would be so greatful if you could share this with me!! Hope to hear from you soon, Thank you!

        • Hi there, I actually made a tutorial on how to convert crochet stitches into loom band stitches. We loomers have coined it “Loomigurumi” rather than “Amigurumi” it’s become quite popular within our little community, I’d be happy to share the url for the youtube video if Ahooka is interested

        • The video on my youtube is https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6a08icJ_p6Q i’ve called it Rainbow Loom – Loomigurumi – Beginners Guide to Amigurumi Crochet with Loom Bands – There’s a few of us that had started to use crochet stitches in our designs and then we were seeing full on Teddy Bears and the like, so it seemed like something fun to learn. I had to teach myself to crochet with bands as i’m not one that can even crochet with yarn hah to please excuse my glaring mistakes in terminology etc. It’s been very fun to see people take what little they’ve learned from my channel and start following crochet patterns on their own, a whole new cross-over for the hobby :)

        • That’s awesome !! I no nothing about rainbow looms (except the very basic bracelet that everybody knows) and I wouldn’t have imagine that it was so similar to crochet !

        • I’ve certainly found it an eyeopener as someone who couldn’t crochet to save her life and now people are making my loomigurumi designs in yarn, it blows my mind :)

        • Wait are you the Kate Shcultz if you are that’s amazing I have probably made 30 of your whales

  4. Really want to make this for my little girls but I’m not sure about the head…does that start in a magic ring too??

    • This unicorn is adorable! I’m stuck on row 1 what does on the other side mean? Neveremind, I learned something
      New! Can’t wait to get going!

      • You did figure it out, right? :) Please send a picture of your unicorn when you’ll finish it, I love to see all those unicorns you guys make :)

  5. I want to say thank you so much for this wondweful design..I love it..one of the prettiest on net! your work is so good :)

  6. I love this lil unicorn. So cute. I am making one for a lil baby girl. White fushia and purple. So cute!!!!

  7. Okay, so you’ve gotten a lot of questions on row 1 but I’m totally stuck on it >.< and your patterns are written a little different than I'm used to does the 3 in back mean 3 in on stitch or 3 in a row? Thanks!

    • I’m totally going to make a picture for that row 1 :D

      If I give you the stitches one by one it will be like :
      R1 : ch 6, sc in the second ch form hook, sc, sc, sc, sc3 in the last ch , on the other side of the chain : sc, sc, sc, inc (12)

      Does it make more sense to you?

  8. Thank you so much for creating this gorgeous pattern! Yesterday I was asked if I could crochet a unicorn. Having never tried before, I searched for a pattern, found yours and immediately set about making it. I used green for the body and purple for the horn, mane, tail and feet. I also crocheted blue eyes for it. When I completed it today I shared a picture of it (and a link to this page) on Google+, as I do with most things I make. My picture has received more +1’s than anything else I’ve made and I’ve even had offers to buy my tiny unicorn! I really didn’t think I’d done a very good job of it and my photography isn’t great, so I was very surprised and pleased with the reaction it got :)

    • You’re welcome !!
      I’m glad your unicorn was such a hit ! :) Feel free to sell it if you’d like ! I’m only the owner of the pattern, not of the time to make it :)
      Btw, I would love to see your unicorn ! :)

      • Thanks for your permission :) I’m amazed at the response my unicorn has received! The +1’s keep coming in – currently at 148, prior to this the most I’d received was 47. I’ll email you the photo I shared, please excuse my poor photography!

  9. Thank you so much for this pattern. My son has been asking for “just one unicorn” and he couldn’t pick one color so I used rainbow variegated. I emailed you a picture as we’ll :)

    • You’re welcome !! :) I love your unicorn! This yarn was made for that project !! I hope your son is happy with his cute little unicorn !! :)

  10. thank you very much for sharing your pattern for this super cute tiny unicorn.. as soon as i saw it on pinterest.. i decided to make it right away.. the color of my tiny unicorn is milk white and the feet horn and the hair are gold.. i finished one but i want to make 2 more.. again thank you so much looking forward to your next free pattern of cute amigurumi… <3

    • You’re welcome ! I’d be glad to see your tiny unicorn and share it in my facebook gallery “made by you” ! If you’d like you can send me a picture to ahooka[at]ahookamigurumi.com !
      See you :)

      • Hi Cindy, You are well subscribed which means you did receive the confirmation email properly, the link to the ebook is in it :) Feel free to ask if you have any other issue !

        • No,I did not! I do not mean to be disrespectable but could you please send it again with the data I used to send it to you.Please,I am stressing out because I can’t seem to get the steps right.Could you send me step by step on how to get the Ebook quickly!Thanks very much! I appreciate it very much!I am not very intelligent about using a laptop computer.Sorry to bother you again!

  11. Thanks for the pattern. I recently made this cute unicorn. This is my first amigurumi what I did. I love it! :)

    • You’re welcome ! I’m glad you love it :) Share a picture on my facebook page if you’d like ! I’ll include it to the “made by you” gallery :)

  12. This Tiny Unicorn is adorable and had been easy to make so far. Was wondering though how to make him bigger. Would love to do 2-3 sizes bigger so they all sit together. Can you help. Thanks.

    • Making it bigger with the same yarn would mean re-designing the entire pattern, which I don’t have time to do, but an easy way to do it would be to use a bigger hook (and appropriate yarn) for each unicorn you want to make !

  13. I’m going to make this for my D&D buddy who absolutely adores unicorns! And maybe one for myself. And maybe a goth version for my other D&D buddy… and maybe one for each of the boys in our group because they love cute things too. I just want an excuse to make a whole herd of adorable unicorns.

  14. I cannot for the life of me figure out the first round. It seems so simple but I can’t figure out where the sc3 is supposed to go. I’m by no means advanced, but I usually pick things up fairly quickly. Is there any way you could go into greater detail or even do a short video tutorial?

    • Hi :) I’m not equipped to make videos but here is what I’ve answered into a previous comment :
      the head is quite rectangle so you have to start with a chain 6 and crochet around it, as you would do to make an oval. If I give you the stitches one by one it will be like :
      R1 : ch 6, sc in the second ch form hook, sc, sc, sc, sc3 in the last stitch of the chain , and on the other side of the chain : sc, sc, sc, inc (12)
      Does it make more sense to you?

  15. Okay I don’t get it. Round 1 – 6 from the head is really easily to follow. But my problems begin with round 7. I’ve crocheted it several times again, hoping it was only a mistake in 1 – 6 made by me. But no… when I started at round 7 the head began to loose his form. So I really don’t get it. Why inc*8, sc10 (26)? It really makes no sense to me since the head is getting out of its form at this time. Am I really that bad at understanding your pattern? Or is there actually a mistake?

  16. This is so cute! Thank you so much for the pattern. I’m gonna make this for my friend’s baby girl. I think she is gonna fall in love with it.
    Best wishes from Mexico.

  17. Thank you very very much for sharing this pattern. Totally adorable and my little girl loved it so much!

  18. Is there a video tutorial on how to do this because I don’t understand how to make this :( but I really want to!!! I’m 17 years old and it’s hard lol

    • Hi ! I’m sorry I’m not equipped to make videos :) I understand this maybe a little bit to difficult for a beginner but I’m sure you’ll soon be able to do it !! :) See you !

  19. I love your pattern and I think it’s so cute however, I am 12 so like most other 12 year old girls I am obsessed with the rainbow loom and loomigurumi which is a rubber form of crochet. So I made your pattern using rainbow loom bands and it turned out amazing I was wondering if you would let me share how to make it on youtube?
    Thank You

  20. So cute! I made one with all-white feet, a brown horn, and an all-orange mane for a friend who prefers the “right” kind of unicorn (the non-sparkly-and-rainbow kind) and loves orange. It’s for her 18th birthday. I think she’s really dreading becoming an adult with responsibilities, so I’m hoping this makes it a little better for her. Plus, I’m totally going to make one for myself with a rainbow mane. :)

    • I’d love to see a real unicorn to see what the “right kind” looks like :D In the meantime, let it be whatever we love ^^ I’d love to see your unicorns if you’d like to send a picture or to post it on my facebook wall :)
      See you !

  21. I an trying to get your free e-book for the Tiny Unicorn and others but seem unable to access this. Have entered my name and e-mail. thanks

  22. I’ve ordernd the free e-Book and got the Mail, but If i I Open the Link I just get to this page. I think the page wasn’t found. Do you have any Idea what I Could try? I tried both Links and Nothing happened.

    • Hi Rachel, thank you for your feedback ! I’ve made some updates this morning and unintendedly changed the link url. Sorry about that ! the link should work again now ! Happy holidays :)

  23. Hier ahooka
    Trank you! It works now. This Little Unicorn is sooooooo cute! Love your patterns❤️❤️❤️

    • Thank you Faith ! Several girls made it as their first amigurumi ! I think the only difficulty might be the horn. I’d be glad to see a picture if you give it a go ! :) Happy new year to you !

  24. Abrazos desde Venezuela!! Son tiernas y hermosas tus labores a ganchillo!! ^.^ Felicitaciones y muchos éxitos! <3 ^.^

  25. Adorable unicorn. Wondering if the ebook and patterns are still available ? my daughter would love to have a try at making one. Thank you for sharing your talent :D

    • Yes they are Joan :) You just have to enter your email address in the box below the article, and it will be sent to you by email right away, with 7 other free patterns :)

  26. I so want to try to make this! I’m also very happy to have found your site! Thank you for all the wonderful patterns you have made free for all of us. God bless you!

  27. Thanks so much for all of your free patterns. They are so cute. I just made the Tinycorn but in a larger size. And thanks for the the info tutorial from Planet June. Very helpful as I’m new to Amigurumi. Your pattern was easy to follow though. Great instructions. I hope to make most of the items in your e-book.

    • Hi Joan ! Thank you ! That means the world to me ! I’m so happy that you like them and that you were able to make one while new to amigurumi ! See you soon :)

  28. Hi! I love this little pattern thank you so much! If possible could you please share how you acquired the Phil coton 3 yarn? I’ve been having a heck of a time tracking down the lovely bright colors used for the main. This Yarnpolloza website has all the colors but unfortunately does not ship to USA. Any help would be much appreciated! Thank you :)

    • I just wanted to add it would help me so much if you could provide the name of the different rainbow yarns you used because the different websites are showing a slight variation between the colors and I’m not sure which ones are the bright vibrant colors like what you used. Thank you so much for all that you do!

    • Unfortunately, I live in France and Phil coton 3 is a French brand so it was very easy to get from here. Here is a website I found that delivers everywhere, however it’s a bit on the expensive side : http://www.loveknitting.com/phildar-phil-coton-3
      The colors I used are oeillet (pink), violet (purple), turquoise (blue), pistache (green), citron (yellow), vitamine (orange) and rouge (red)
      I hope that helps !

      • Thank you so much!!! Yes I found LoveKnitting and now I know the colors! Thank you so much! I would love to post a photo of my unicorn once I’m finished. I love your ebook and can’t wait to make every little darling thing in there. Thanks again :)

  29. Why can’t I get the free ebook? If there is something I am doing wrong please e-mail be back.

  30. I keep getting an error message when I try to sign up for the book. Any help is appreciated! :)

    • Hi Nicole I currently experience some issues with my website (it has been attacked so I had to double protect it which leads to that password). I’m working on it and everything should be back to normal tomorrow. Please let me know if you still experience problems tomorrow. Sorry about that!

    • Hi Janet, I can see that you subscribed well on March,5, to do so you had to click on a confirmation button in an email I sent you, you can access your ebook (which includes tinycorn’s pattern) from there. You may need to wait a few minutes, depending on your internet connection speed, for it to appear properly. I hope that will help, let me know if it doesn’t of if you have any other issue ! Have a good day !

      • Hi again. I have checked my email account and still have not received your email. There is nothing in my junk mail either. I am not sure why I am not receiving it. I am planning on making those sweet little Unicorns for the Sick Kids Hospital, because what is better than a Tiny Unicorn to bring a little one some love and laughter. I went to your Facebook page and wondered if I messaged you if that would work. Thanks for any help. Looking forward to hearing from you.

      • Hi Kathy, I happen to have lost 6 month of content on my blog at the beginning of October, so I’ve lost all the comments too, but I replied to these people and gave them their eBook ! :)

  44. Tried to request your book including the tiny unicorn…..to no avail. Have checked both inbox and junk mail and nothing. I would like to make this for my great niece and am not at home. Her birthday is the 3rd of January and would like to get started on it as soon as possible. By the way, I have already made 1 and am really pleased with it.

  49. I have tried three times now to get the pattern for the unicorn. It still has not shown up in my email :(

  50. The ebook that conatins the pattn for this little unicorn is not available, that’s so sad!

  51. I’m improvising a hippocamp using this pattern as a starting point, I’m starting with the front of the body and working towards the tail, I’d be happy to show you the final results.

  52. I have tried several times to subscribe, but I’ve not received an email even to my junk mail. Can you send this to me?

  53. I would like the pattern for the tiny unicorn. I can’t find it anywhere. Please help

  54. The free ebook download is not sending me a link. I’ve tried a couple of times and have also checked my spam folder.🤔

    • I’m also not getting any emails, even after trying 3 different email addresses and checking all spam folders. Really disappointing since I wanted to make a tinycorn for a friend’s daughter.
