Do you have an imaginary animal in childhood?

What is it?

Actually I don’t really remember, but maybe a cat with pink feathers that have wings will look cute, or a rainbow haired rabbit that can speak LOL.

Speaking of imaginary animal, lately unicorn is a worldwide trend .

What is unicorn?

Unicorn is a pretty horse with a rainbow horn and feather (definition by me HA!).

This is a decent defnition by Encyclopedia Britannica :

Unicorn is a mythological animal resembling a horse or a kid with a single horn on its forehead (source).

Children, teenager to adult many like unicorn because of its adorable appearance, and of course because you will never find this kind of horse on this planet.

I remember when kids there was a unicorn television show that I always watch every afternoon, the name is “My Little Pony”.

If I’m not mistaken, the story is about a friendship of several unicorns living in an area like a residence, unicorn residence LOL that sounds cute.

Around the year 2017-2018 if you look into google or pinterest or other browser place, a lot of crafter make unicorn crafts, that means many people went crazy over this animal.

In that time lenght many of the business owner are trying to adjust the trend by making new innovations about unicorn, and while others make the unicorn craft for a gift or just want to follow the trend.

Then I used the canva feature “color palette generator” and I found 7 colors needed to make this unicorn that is : kobi, jagged ice, moonraker, cream brulee, light blue, white, and black. 

To find out completely how to use this canva feature you can see this post >> Get Yarn Color Palette Automatically from Images.

You may not be familiar with some of the colors above, keep calm me too! Maybe you are thinking “how to find the exact yarn color like the result, it seems impossible“.  Then what next?

The trick is we can find a yarn that is almost similar to the one you are looking for. Relax, I’ve found it for you.

So basically I split the following yarns according to yarn type that is acrylic, cotton and wool.

As a bonus there is also a list for baby yarns (because baby skin is more sensitive, so you should use special yarn created for baby).
