Unicorn sweater knitting pattern. Do you want to knit something for the little ones at home? A colorful sweater with the unicorns they love so much? Let me introduce you to this unicorn sweater knitting pattern that the little ones will love.

In the pattern you will find the instructions to make the sweater from size 2 years old to size 12 years old.

The design has a simple structure and is knit flat. Its biggest challenge is in the intarsia, the technique for using color, but even if you are a beginner at it, I will guide you so that you will love the result.

If you are a beginner and want to get out of your comfort zone and dare to make your first sweater this pattern is also for you.

The pattern has been tech edited to check for any bugs and tested by several testers to make sure they could follow it without any problems.

If you want more information go to the construction notes, prerequisites, materials and sample fabric tabs above.
