Unicorn Fever Scarf

I scream, you scream, we all scream for...Unicorns!! Oh YES, I totally went there! The world is fangirling over unicorns right now and I'm wholeheartedly right there with them.

I can't get enough of all of these bright colors filling up my newsfeed. It reminds me of my childhood with Lisa Frank and My Little Pony. Even now, my closet is filled with florals, abstract, aztecs, tribal, and bohemian prints.

If you ask me, the unicorn trend is far from over. With Frappes, cookies, and rainbow highlighters, it's no wonder we're head over heels for this trend. I'm happy to provide my part in all this color craze, but keeping the handmade touch, by designing a new pattern. 

Begin your holiday/fall season by diving into a whimsical fairytale with this free crochet pattern, Unicorn Fever Scarf.
