I’m delighted to say that I’ve got another FREE pattern for you today, in collaboration with the lovely folks at Anchor Yarns. This time we’ve come up with a cute unicorn baby set for you, which I made, with their lovely Baby Pure Cotton yarn.
If you are not familiar with Baby Pure Cotton yarn it’s a natural 100% cotton which is combed (so not mercerised) making it a lovely soft yarn to work with. It’s available in 29 soft powdered shades; I used 1 ball of cream (00105), 1 ball of grey (00398), 1 ball of pink (00423) and 1 ball of blue (00128) in total (though it was only a tiny bit of the pink and blue so you’d have some left over for other projects).
The yarn is ideal for babies as it’s hypoallergenic and saliva resistant to be entirely safe for new-borns. It’s also delicate and soft so very kind and gentle for babies sensitive skin.
I’ve used this yarn several times before (on the free XOXO baby blanket and the free Sherbert Star Granny Square) and it’s a yarn that works well with a 3mm to 3.5mm hook / US D/2 to E/4 (in this instance I used a 3mm hook).
I also used a natural wooden teething ring and a squeaker and a rattle insert to make the teether and rattle a fun bit of stimuli and discovery for baby. You will also need;
- Small amount of toy stuffing
- Black embroidery thread
- Stitch markers
- A needle to sew the crocheted pieces together

The Unicorn Baby Set is the perfect gift for a baby shower or new baby gift! The pattern is a free download available directly from the Anchor Crafts website here where you can just download the pattern or register for an account. It doesn’t cost anything for an account, but by signing up you’ll gain access to loads of other free patterns by other talented designers too.
The pattern is written in UK crochet terminology and I’ve linked it up on Ravelry too if you’d like to save it to your favourites on there (at the link below).
This pattern would be suitable for adventurous beginners or for crocheters new to amigurumi as they are quite simple shapes to make with just increases and decreases.
Handmade baby rattles and teethers are such a cute gift to gift a baby and new parents, but please note that it is the responsibility of the maker to ensure that toys, made using this pattern, are safe for young children and are suitably tested before gifting.
If you hook up the Baby Set I hope you’ll tag @kcaco.uk on Instagram using the hashtags #kcacouk and #proud2craft or #anchoryarns (so the folks at Anchor Yarns can see) or share your photos with us on social media (facebook, twitter or or as a project on Ravelry) – I love to see what you make! And finally you may wish to make sure you are signed up to blog (below) and / or my mailing list to get a reminder when new blog posts, discounts or new free pattern releases are available.
Until next time folks! Happy hooking and keep calm and crochet on my friends xx
