Original Pattern: Savannah Chaps
Knitter Extraordinaire: Sarah (Ravelry ID)
Mods: Changed the original zebra pattern to a unicorn! More photos can be found on her project page, here.
What Makes This Awesome: Who knew a zebra could look so magical? I’ve knit the original pattern before, and I love it (plus, it’s actually 3 patterns in one, which is pretty awesome) but I never thought about making a unicorn! Sarah cleverly used a sparkly yarn to add ‘hooves’ by knitting the first 4-5 rows of the pattern with her silvery yarn (each limb is made separately), and adding not only a great silver horn to match, but a wonderful shock of rainbow for the mane and tail. For the body, she skipped the stripes and kept it all in white. The result is fantastic – I absolutely want to knit a unicorn now. I have some sparkly gold yarn that might be a great fit!
