Now you are ready to assemble your unicorn! Use your yarn needle to sew the legs, head, horn, and ears in place.

For the mane and tail-You can choose to either use a nice multicoloured yarn or several different colours of yarn. Wrap the yarn around a small object to create small lengths. I choose to use a ruler.

Once you have wrapped the yarn several times cut the lengths across. Now you are going to take one length in your hook.  Push the hook through a stitch to make a small loop. First, make sure that the two sides are even and then pull them through the loop to make a knot. Repeat the process until you have reached the desired mane. For the tail, repeat the process but use a larger object to make your lengths longer.

Add googly eyes with a hot glue gun.
