The Lazy Pony & The Grumpy Unicorn

from Morrgan's Creatures
(6) Name: 'Knitting : The Lazy Pony & The Grumpy Unicorn
The Lazy Pony & The Grumpy Unicorn
The Lazy Pony & The Grumpy Unicorn
The Lazy Pony & The Grumpy Unicorn

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • The knitting is done both flat and in the round, with the stitches knit, purl, right lifted increase and knit/purl 2 together.

Pattern Description:

Here we have a lazy pony called Tony and a grumpy little unicorn called Hubert.

Why is Hubert grumpy, I hear you ask? Well first of all, this particular teenage boy unicorn happens to be very pink. Just how is a poor unicorn supposed to impress that cute pegasus girl when he's as pink as can be? AND named Hubert? Seriously, what were his parents thinking?

If only he was a cool steely grey like his uncle Reginald, then things would be different. Or at least had uncle Reginald's name. Now there's a proper noble name for a mighty unicorn, sure to impress any cute pegasus. Not at all silly. Unlike Huuuubert.

But no, that wasn't to be. This little guy is pink Hubert. A very grumpy pink Hubert.


The PDF pattern includes many pictures and easy to follow, row-for-row instructions for how to knit a lazy pony called Tony and a grumpy unicorn called Hubert. The two creatures partially share the same pattern.
