Knit a Unicorn Scarf

Buttonbag’s new Unicorn Scarf Knitting Kit is a beginner-friendly starter knitting kit suitable for children, complete novices and anyone who’s feeling a it rusty. I took the new scarf kit away with me for a weekend to test it out. It would be a great easy starter knitting project for a child, or to knit with a child.

Knitted entirely in garter stitch, all the details –  such as the eyes and the mane are added on afterwards, which I think makes it much easier. The eyes are embroidered on, using the big plastic needle, and the mane is a series of individual tassels which are knotted onto the underside of the scarf.


With just a few simple shaping stitches such as knitting into the front and back of a stitch to increase the overall number of stitches  –  or knitting two together to decrease the stitches – the  scarf quickly grew and grew.

There was plenty of yarn left over, so it would be possible to make the Unicorn scarf longer (or shorter). I have a very loose knitting style so another person’s might knit up a bit smaller.
