FO: Flavia the Unicorn

I simply couldn't be happier with my latest crochet project....  Meet Flavia the Unicorn, another freshstitches friend!  I wanted to crochet something for the Ravellenic Games and I wanted to start now, so I had to pick something that I could knit entirely from stash, and then I remembered how much I loved the Flavia pattern when Stacey released it last year and I knew it was meant to be.
