Want to inject some colour into your life? Got lot’s of scrap yarn that you just don’t know Nelson The Unicornwhat to do with? Need to practice your colour changes?! Well then look no further 🙂

Hi there! I am very proud to introduce you to Nelson the Unicorn 🙂 Nelson is made using the Japanese style of crochet known as amigurumi, which means he is crocheted in the round, in continuous spirals.

Nelson lives in the magical land of Arann. He is a free spirit & never stays in the same place for very long! Like all unicorns Nelson has magical powers, but he really doesn’t like to show off about it! Nelson loves the sound of wind chimes and is super laid back and easy going. His motto; “Let go and let flow!” He loves to have fun and definitely doesn’t take anything too seriously!
