Budget Friendly Unicorn Blanket

Sharing is caring!

We’ve updated our Unicorn Blanket pattern to include a full video tutorial!  The video features the Adult size Budget friendly Unicorn Blanket!  These blankets are so popular I wanted to make it affordable for everyone!  Use 3 strands of worsted weight and make this Adult size blanket for under $30!!

Budget Friendly Unicorn Blanket

Our Adult size blanket measures about 50″ wide by 40″ long but this pattern can easily be made larger.  All those details are covered in the pattern and video!

Our Original blanket uses 2 strands of Bernat Softee chunky and the Budget friendly blanket uses 3 strands of Bernat CozyStyle / Red Heart Comfort or any Big Ball Brand.  I used 1 strand of Teal, 1 Aqua and 1 White with my 16mm Q hook. You can Purchase these Big balls from Walmart Stores
