Note: This was made for a 3 year old. The hat is a little bit loose on her so it can probably fit a 4 year old. You can size it as you would like so it will fit an adult.
Size H hook
Felt for eyes and ears (black, white, blue, pink)
Various pink yarns for hair
Purple yarn for hairs
Glue (I used fabric glue)
Depending on what you want your unicorn to look like, you can choose different colors for the unicorn hair and horn. You can even make it rainbow colored hair.
Use white yarn

Use white yarn.

Chain 1 and turn. Sc2tog. 1st in next 2st. Sc2tog. (4)
Chain 1 and turn. 1sc I’m each st. (4)
Chain 1 and turn. Sc2tog x 2. (2)
Chain 1 and turn. Sc2tog. (1)
Make 4. Attach to head and make sure they are centered. Sew 2 ears on each side so the ears are more sturdy. I did an overhand stitch to attach the two layers together. Do this on both sides.
Use white yarn.
Pick up 15 stitches where the ear Flaps should be. (1 on each side) All these stitches should be dc. (15)
Chain 3 and turn. Dc2tog x 2. Dc in the next 6st. Dc2tog x 2. Treat the chain 3 as a stitch and always skip the first stitch after you turn because the chain 3 is considered a dc stitch. (11)
Chain 3 and turn. Dc in each st. (11)
Chain 3 and turn. Dc2tog . Dc in the next 6 st. Dc2tog. (9)
Chain 3 and turn. Dc in each st. (9)
Chain 3 and turn. Dc2tog. Dc in the next 4st. Dc2tog. (7)
Chain 3 and turn. Dc2tog. Dc in the next 2st. Dc2tog (5)
Chain 3 and turn. DC in each st. (5)
Chain 1 and turn. Sc2tog. 1sc. Sc2tog. (3)
Use gold yarn.
Pick up 14 stiches where the horn should be. Make sure it is centered. Place it a little bit forward. (You could also make the horn separately and then sew into onto the hat when you are finished. You would just have to have 7st in a magic circle and then 2sc in each st. Then you will have 14 stitches to continue to make the rest of the horn.)
1sc in each st. Repeat for 4 rows.
*1sc in next 5st. 2sctog.* Repeat 2 times. (12)
1sc in each st. For 3 rows. (12)
*1sc in next 2st. 2sctog.* Repeat 3 times. (9)
1sc in each st. For 3 rows. (9)
*1sc. 2sctog.* Repeat 3 times. (6)
2sctog all around. See gap closed.
If you would like to get a little fancy, use gold yarn in conjunction with metallic gold to give it that shimmery look.
Leave a good amount of yarn so you will be able to coil it around the horn to make it look like a unicorn horn. Look at reference pictures to get the look you want. I went over the horn twice to make it the way I wanted it.
You can use your own colors here but I used various pink shades of yarn and purple yarn.
1sc in the second chain from the hook.
Your work should automatically coil.
Make about 24 strands. Could be less because the hat tends to get quite heavy if you attach too much.
Sew this onto the back of the hat.
Using any of the pink and purple yarns. Chain 7.
In the 3rd chain from the hook, *hdc, 3dc, hdc*. Sl st into the next chain. (Chain 2. In the same stitch, *hdc, 3dc, hdc*) Do this for the rest of the chains.
FO. Coil your work together to resemble a rose. Sew this onto the front of the hat. You can make as many as you want. I made 4.
With green yarn. Chain 8.
Sl st in second chain from hook. 1sc in next 2 chains. 1hdc in next 2 chains. 1dc in next chain. Hdc, 1sc, hdc in last chain.
Then we are going to work around the back of the chains.
1dc. 1hdc in next 2 chains. 1sc in next 2 chains. Sl st in last chain. FO.
Make as many leaves as you want. I made 5.
Cut out 2 black circles, one much larger than the other.
Cut out 1 blue circle.
Cut out 3 circles. One should be significantly larger than the 2 circles.
Look below for the diagram on how to put the eyes together.
After gluing the eyes together, glue it onto the hat.
Cut out ear shapes out of pink felt. Make 2. Glue them onto the ears.
