About the pattern: My 6 year old daughter asked me to make her a unicorn, so this is what I came up with! The flower hooves and “clippy-clop” button horseshoes were a last-minute design inspiration. The buttons moving across a hard surface create a fun sound-effect for playtime when the horse is galloping, prancing and dancing!
