Unicorn Crochet Wrist Rest Cushion (Free Crochet Pattern)

Most of us spend many hours on the computer and wrist pain can be quite common if you don’t have a way to to rest your wrist in a comfortable position. Instead of buying a generic mouse pad from the store, I decided to make my own wrist cushion. I love unicorns (who doesnt?!) so I thought it would make a cute companion to my mouse 🙂

When Arm B is completed, do NOT cast off the yarn, we will continue to work on the body…

Body

After completing the last sc of the last round of Arm B, ch 16, then bring back Arm A and crocheting 9 sc around Arm A to connect both parts together.

Now, we can start the 1st round of the body.

sc along the chain (16 sc) & the arm (2nd arm,9 sc), sc the other side of the chain (16 sc) & the arm (1st arm, 9 sc) (50)

Round 2-35: sc around (50)

You can add more rounds to make the body longer,  which means to make more room for your wrist to place. 

Legs
sc in next 6 sts after the last round of the body,

Then sc in next 9 sts, these 9 sts is the first leg.

Join the last sc of the leg into the 1st stitch of the leg, then continue the leg by crocheting 3 more 9sc rounds, then closing the leg by *sc, Dec, repeat * till round ends (6)

-Cast off, weave in ends

 

The second leg will be on the other end.

Leave 16 sts between 2 legs and count 9 sts on the other end.

Start with new yarn (same color), sc in those 9 sts.

Join the last sc of the leg into the 1st stitch of the leg, then continue crocheting 3 more 9sc rounds, then closing the leg by *sc, Dec, repeat * till round ends (6)

-Cast off

Don’t stuff too much filling, just a thin layer which can support your wrist and make you feel comfortable.

Cut a long yarn and close the body.
