Crochet The Unique Unicorn Shawl
Crochet The Unique Unicorn Shawl
Hi everyone, today I am bringing to you a brand new tutorial on how to crochet The Unique Unicorn Shawl. This crochet project is super easy, and perfect for beginners. I used Lion Brand’s Shawl in a Ball yarn for this project. I used two skeins of this yarn, in shade Unique Unicorn. It is a delight to crochet, and creates the most stunning shawl.
The video tutorial for this project can be found here:
Crochet The Unique Unicorn Shawl: the yarn
This crochet shawl is created using Lion Brand’s Shawl in a Ball yarn. This yarn is beautiful and very soft. It is one of my favorite yarns to works with, as it so versatile. I used shade “Unique Unicorn”, which is a delight to crochet with. Indeed, the soft and harmonious colors create the most beautiful rainbow of a shawl, which looks stunning. I love all the color ways available for the Shawl in a Ball collection, but this one is definitely my favorite!
Have you ever crocheted with this yarn? I have. Indeed, I crocheted the Unique Unicorn scarf over a year ago. The free pattern and video tutorial can be found when you click the link. It is a super easy project which can be made quickly.
I used 2 skeins of this yarn for this shawl. This enables this wrap to be quite large and “drapy”, which is perfect for a wrap. This project can be made smaller or bigger depending on what you want, which is perfect. I love how it turned out and I know I will be wearing this shawl a lot.
Crochet The Unique Unicorn Shawl: the design
This shawl is crocheted in the shape of a half circle. I love semi circular shawls, as they look so beautiful and lovely. The circular shape adds a lot of femininity to this project. A half circle shawl really looks elegant and pretty. It offers a slightly larger width than a triangular shawl, so it is a great addition to any wardrobe.
I love how perfect this looks with any outfit. This wrap can be worn in all seasons too.
I released another semi circular crochet shawl last month. The Polina Half Circle Wrap pattern can be found here. It is a very beautiful crochet shawl to create too.
I love frilly borders at the moment. This project features a beautiful and feminine frilly border that is made very simply. This project works up quickly too, as the yarn is quite thick (it is considered a chunky yarn). Let me know if you have ever made a crochet project with Lion Brand’s Shawl in a Ball yarn.
I hope you enjoy this tutorial!

2 skeins of Lion Brand Shawl in a Ball in shade Unique Unicorn
6 mm crochet hook
Pair of scissors
Sl st: slip stitch
DC: Double Crochet (UK Treble Crochet)
EOR: End of row
Begin pattern here
To start, make a slip knot. Ch 4, sl st through 1st stitch to form a ring.
Compete rows as follows:
1: Ch 3 (=DC), 6 DC into ring (=7 DC in total)
2: Ch 3 (=DC), turn your work, place a DC into 1st DC from previous row (=2 DC in same stitch), 2 DC into each DC from previous row until eor (=14 DC).
3: Ch 3 (=DC), turn your work, place a DC into 1st DC from previous row (=2 DC in same stitch), [DC into next DC, 2 DC into next DC] until eor.
4: Ch 3 (=DC), turn your work, place a DC into 1st DC from previous row (=2 DC in same stitch), [DC into next 2 DC, 2 DC into next DC] until eor.
5: Ch 3 (=DC), turn your work, place a DC into 1st DC from previous row (=2 DC in same stitch), [DC into next 3 DC, 2 DC into next DC] until eor.
6: Ch 3 (=DC), turn your work, place a DC into 1st DC from previous row (=2 DC in same stitch), [DC into next 4 DC, 2 DC into next DC] until eor.
7: Ch 3 (=DC), turn your work, place a DC into 1st DC from previous row (=2 DC in same stitch), [DC into next 5 DC, 2 DC into next DC] until eor.
8: Ch 3 (=DC), turn your work, place a DC into 1st DC from previous row (=2 DC in same stitch), [DC into next 6 DC, 2 DC into next DC] until eor.
9-30: repeat rows as previously explained, making sure you always add one DC on it’s own per row in between the 2 DC together in one stitch.
For instance, this means row 9 will go like this:
Ch 3 (=DC), turn your work, DC in same first stitch (=2 DC in same stitch). Now you just need to add 1 DC into the next 7 stitches; after these 7 DC, just add 2 DC together in one stitch. Now just place 7 DC in each DC along, then 2 DC together, etc, until the end of this row.
Repeat this process row after row, and this will gradually enlarge your shawl in the shape of an arc circle.
Do not fasten off.
Frilly edging border:
Complete rows as follows:
31: Ch 3 (=DC), place 2 more DC into the 1st stitch (=3 DC together); place 3 DC into next stitch and all stitches across until eor.
32: Ch 3 (=DC), place DC into next DC from previous row until eor.
33-34: repeat row 32.
Fasten off, tidy up all loose ends.
