Festive unicorn of the sea sweater: now live on I Like Knitting!

What is cuter than a cartoon narwhal? A narwhal in a Santa hat!


My second design in the December 2019 issue of I Like Knitting is the Festive unicorn of the sea sweater,* which features just that: a narwhal in a Santa hat! This is the perfect Christmas sweater for a child who wants something just a little bit different!

The inspiration: Unicorn of the sea sweater

The design is inspired by my Unicorn of the Sea Sweater, which I designed for the February 2018 issue of I Like Knitting, and can be found in my Ravelry store.


The Festive unicorn of the sea sweater* is knitted flat from the bottom up in sections that are seamed before adding the neckline. The jumper is knitted in stocking stitch with 2 x 2 ribbing for the cuffs, hem and neckline and the narwhal motif is added using the intarsia technique. The pattern is written in 5 sizes: 2 (4, 6, 8, 10) years and is designed to fit with 2 inches of positive ease.


The sample is knitted in Debbie Bliss Rialto DK,** which is a lovely soft merino with excellent stitch definition. The yarn is also machine washable, which makes it ideal for kids' knits.

The Festive unicorn the sea pattern* is available now in the December 2019 issue of I Like Knitting magazine. I Like Knitting is an e-magazine and is available via a subscription service. For full details, head to the I Like Knitting website.*
