FINISHING

Unless otherwise stated, we recommend using mattress st seam for joining all seams. Attach safety eye where marked. Join Head seam, gathering the 8 sts at cast on and leaving an opening for filling. Fill head molding into shape carefully.

With WS together, place 2 Ear pieces together and over sew around outside edges. Fold Ear in half and catch together at bottom. Mark position on Head and sew to Head. Repeat for other Ear.
Join seam of Horn (leaving the long end for winding around Horn). Fill firmly and attach to Head between the Ears. Using the long end, wind around the horn fairly tightly and secure at bottom of Horn.

Join Body seam, leaving an opening for filling. Fill Body molding into shape carefully. Attach Head to Body. Join Front and Back Leg seams, gathering the 8 sts at cast on, leaving an opening for filling. Fill Legs molding into shape carefully. Sew Front and Back Legs in position securely by sewing through top of limb then through body then through other limb.

Mane - Using C2, C3, C4, C5 and C6 together cut several lengths approx 15 cm long. Using a crochet hook, attach strands in pairs to top of Head between Ears working down back of Head. Trim to neaten.

Tail - Using C2, C3, C4, C5 and C6 together, cut several lengths approx 15 cm long to make a thick tassel for Tail. Sew securely in position at back of Unicorn, checking tail position does not impede the ability to sit before securing. Trim to neaten.

Using black embroidery thread and straight sts, embroider eye lashes. Using C3 and straight sts, embroider nostrils.
