3in1 Rainbow Unicorn Folding Baby Blanket Crochet Pattern

January 03, 2019
I wanted this 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 textures and the colourful mane and tail will brighten up your day.



THIS YEAR I DECIDED TO DO THINGS DIFFERENTLY AND SO ALL MY PATTERNS WILL BE FREE FOR THE FIRST 3 DAYS FROM RELEASE

THIS PATTERN IS NOT FREE ANYMORE, BUT YOU CAN FOLLOW MY BLOG AND FACEBOOK PAGE TO BE NOTIFIED WHEN OTHER PATTERNS GO LIVE AND YOU WON'T MISS OUT AGAIN


FIND THE INEXPENSIVE PATTERN IN MY ETSY STORE and RAVELRY STORE  


     Just like my other 3 in 1 baby blankets, the Rainbow Unicorn baby blanket acts as a toy, a blanket and a decoration for your loved one's room. 



     Unfold it and keep your child warm and snuggly while he is entertained playing with the unicorn. 


     Once done, fold it back and it instantly transforms into a decorative item that you can rest on the arm chair or the side of the cot.


     Made with chunky / bulky yarn, this blanket is warm and soft and perfect for the cold months ahead. 

     The natural neutral colours are suitable for both girls and boys and will fit with any colour scheme you might have. 


     Crochet the mane and tail in the colour of your choice to suit your decor and taste.



     This pattern will create a baby blanket size 100cm by 80cm (46in by 31in), but you can make yours as small or as large as you like by changing the number of the starting chains and the number of rows.


Pin it for later

Supplies Used





  • - 9 x 100g balls of chunky (bulky) yarn in white for the blanket and head (unfortunately this chunky yarn was a gift and came without bands, so I don't know what brand it was)

  • - part (less than half) of a 100g ball of Marriner DK Yarn (light worsted yarn) in white for ears and legs

  • - part (less than half) of a 100g ball of Marriners DK Yarn (light worsted yarn) in grey for the horn and legs

  • - various colors (a few yards) for the mane, tail and flowers (I used leftover multicolor and sparkle yarn from my previous projects, but you can use any colour you wish and fits your needs and decor)

  •      Unfortunately Marriner Yarns is only found in the UK, so for my international customers, I can recommend a similar yarn, Red Heart Yarn , which comes is a multitude of colours and weights, just as affordable and easy to work with as Marriner Yarns.


  • - polyfill stuffing

  • - crochet hooks sizes 6.5mm, 6mm, 4mm and 3mm

  • - blunt sewing needle to fit the yarn used to stitch the parts together

  • - 12mm black doll safety eyes

  • - scissors

  •      I get most of my crochet supplies from Amazon, it's fast and easy and I find everything I need in one place. 

         I also invested in Amazon Prime Membership which makes most of shipping free and deliveries super fast.
