Crochet Pattern - Roach the Horse and Yennefer's Unicorn
This is NOT a completed item, much less two completed! It is the PATTERN to make both items - a horse and a unicorn. They are not actually patchwork stuffed animals either, and you add the detail stitches to give them the patchwork look.
If you purchase this item, the PATTERN will be available for you to download as a PDF file in mere minutes. The 10-page PDF can be opened with Adobe Reader and includes pictures to help with construction alongside the written crochet pattern. The awesome PDF file explains how to make both of these totally awesome crocheted plush toys. It is a MODERATE DIFFICULTY pattern made of many parts and requiring several skills. Some sewing skills are required in addition to crochet, and some parts will require a bit of trial and error so you can get them how you want them.
You might recognize these from Gwent (the standalone card game based on the card game that appears in the Witcher video game series). Both of these plushies are based on the cosmetic items available for the Geralt of Rivia skin in the game. Geralt names all of his horses Roach, after the fish not the insect. Yen loves unicorns, who doesn't?
Pattern is in US English.
