Mane and Fringe:

Each fringe for bangs, mane and edging is made up of 3 strands: 2 A and 1 B. Multi-colours may be used for a bright and fun rainbow unicorn! Cut strands 6″ long for front bangs and 10″ (8″ for XXS) long for mane and edging (6″ edging for XXS). Attach fringe by inserting crochet hook through the garment, fold fringe in half and pull folded end through. Insert fringe ends through the loop and pull to tighten.

Bangs:

Attach fringe working in front of horn up to the folded hood edge.

Mane:

Attach fringe working from behind the horn down the back of the hood, filling in more fringe as desired. The fuller, the better!

Edging:

Around the lower poncho edge, attach fringe in every other sp along the short end of rectangles and every other row along the long edges of rectangles.

Drawstring:

Note: For XXS, XS and S sizes, by law, you are required to sew the drawstring in place to prevent strangling. The drawstring adds a decorative touch but is not necessary. I completed omitted this step for the 6-12mth size.

With A, ch 180, fasten off. Thread through the sps at the edge of the neck opening. Attach decorative beads to the ends of the drawstring if desired.

For a perfect finish, steam poncho and fringe. Avoid steaming the horn. The steam will expand the yarn, causing the horn to overstretch. After steaming trim, fringe ends evenly.
