Horse, Unicorn & Pegasus crochet patterns

Don’t miss the launch discount, at the end of this post!

I’m not even sure where to begin this post, as I have so much I’m excited to show you… I’ll just dive straight in:

Horse crochet pattern

First, the pattern that started it all – my latest commissioned design, for a Horse, is now complete:


My horse has a sweet face, a realistic shape and bay colouring. In addition to detailed assembly instructions, this pattern includes two amazing new techniques to make a really special mane and tail:

  • The mane is thick and full, and the strands are attached neatly and firmly.
  • The tail hangs beautifully with no knots or visible attachment points.

Both techniques require no additional materials and are explained in full in the pattern, with lots of step-by-step photos so you can make a perfect horse!

Unicorn and Pegasus Expansion Pack

And, of course, having a horse design opens up a whole world of possibilities for other designs, and I couldn’t wait to add a Unicorn and Pegasus Expansion Pack for the Horse. And I’m so thrilled with the result – I hope you agree!


What is an Expansion Pack?

Expansion Packs by PlanetJune

  • An Expansion Pack is an add-on to an existing PlanetJune pattern.
  • The Expansion Pack lets you modify or add to the original pattern to create something else.
  • You cannot use the Expansion Pack alone – you must also purchase the original pattern in order to be able to complete the pictured items in the Expansion Pack pattern.

This Expansion Pack lets you convert my Horse into a Unicorn, a Pegasus, and/or an Alicorn (that’s a winged Unicorn – or a horned Pegasus if you prefer!) – so you actually get three options in one Expansion Pack:


I’m especially pleased with the elegant wings – they’re a combination of sturdy and decorative, as they’re stiff enough to stand up by themselves, while still looking delicate with the feathered edge.

Hoofing It CAL

In honour of the new patterns, we’re starting a new crochet-along in the PlanetJune group on Ravelry – you can make any of the new designs, or any other PlanetJune designs with hooves (see the CAL thread for the full list). The CAL runs right through till the end of July, so you have time to make one of each if you want 😉

I hope you’ll join us – I can’t wait to see everyone’s horses, unicorns etc!

Links to Buy & Launch Discount

As with all my Expansion Packs, you can buy the patterns separately (although please note that you do need the base Horse pattern to be able to make a Unicorn or Pegasus), or there’s a discount when you buy both together.

But to sweeten this deal even more and give you an incentive to join the CAL right away, I’m offering an additional discount on the Multipack Set (Horse, Unicorn & Pegasus) if you buy within the next 7 days, so you can get all three for only $7.50 – that’s only $2.50 per pattern!

So, here are your options:

Or, if you’re not ready to buy yet, click through to Ravelry and favourite/queue them so you won’t forget about them!


Unicorn & Pegasus:


Can you resist these sweet faces? I hope you love these designs as much as I do – please leave me a comment if you do! Which will you be making first?

    Hi. I was just wondering about line 11 under head. When I add up stitches it comes to 20. But the line above only had 19.

    • June said

      Hi Katherine, hmm, I’m not sure where you’re looking: Rnd 11 of ‘Head & Neck’ on the Horse pattern is “sc in each st around. (14 st)” – so it has 14 stitches, not 19 or 20! But I’m always available to help by email if you need customer support, so please do email me directly if you’re still having difficulties – you’ll find my email address at the bottom of the last page of every PlanetJune pattern 🙂

    Rougjly How tall is the finished product.

    • June said

      The exact size will depend on your exact hook and yarn and how tightly you crochet, but the horse is about 7″ tall from the ground to the top of the head 🙂

    I love the shaping – you managed realism balanced with ease of crochet. Your usual awesome combination.

    They are all beautiful. Their little legs look so sturdy and they really are very appealing. Great work, June.

    Oh my goodness, I’m completely in love with the unicorn and the pegasus! And the horse, of course! 😉 I think I’ll have to start with a unicorn, but it’s a pretty close race.
