Crochet Bunny

Here is a new creation: a crochet bunny. It used up some of the Drops Muskat cotton yarn left over from a baby blanket. I forgot how much counting was involved with toy making but I pressed on. Making two of something is not my forte. I go off piste all the time and then have to remember how to replicate what I have done for the other leg/arm/ear.



Anyway, it was fun to make and will make a lovely addition to the baby blanket gift.



Making the face for a toy is always a deal-breaker. This one is a better style than the one in the book but could be better; it is satisfactory even if he/she does look a little pensive.



The ears are really tactile, all soft and squidgy, due to the double layer of crochet and the addition of felt. 



I like his proportions and can imagine him being dangled from a toddlers small hand by either his arm or leg - but not his ear that would hurt him too much!



The pattern is from the DK book of bumper Crochet which was given to me in a bag of stuff the week I was trying to declutter but I couldn't resist keeping this versatile book of patterns and techniques - I have more ideas in the yarn bag.

Thanks for dropping by.
