This listing is for a pdf pattern for a unicorn backpack or bag. This bag is part of our Ulysses Unicorn Collection, inspired by our knitted toy pattern. This bag looks impressive but is actually really quick and straightforward to knit and is simply felted in your washing machine - an amazing transformation process, which yields remarkably great results each time. Full, detailed instructions are included.



This knitting pattern gives instructions for two sizes of unicorn backpack or bag. It is knitted in a chunky felting yarn (we recommend DROPS Eskimo and have tested this yarn extensively in this pattern to allow for the correct amount of shrinkage) on 8mm needles. The small size bag measures approximately 24cm high by 24cm wide and the large size 32cm high by 28cm wide.



Knitting the unicorn bag takes approx. 4 x 50g balls (small size) or 8 x 50g balls (large size) of chunky felting yarn in white or a main colour of your choice (200/400m), plus scraps of black and pink for the horn and features and scraps of multicoloured yarn for the mane. You will also need 8mm needles, a little bit of stuffing for the horn and a magnetic clasp. You may also want to choose some fabric to line your bag.



This is not just a knitting pattern, it is a 29 page project book! It contains full instructions on how to knit the unicorn bag, and felt it in your washing machine successfully. It also contains descriptions of how to follow the directions and sections of techniques used with pictures and step by step instructions. Great for novice knitters, or if you just need a bit of extra help. However if you you are an experienced knitter you can simply turn to the back for the 2 page concise version!
