Time for Bunnies



I crocheted these bunnies last year 2010
I took the pictures 100 years ago
Any way it is time to make them again
The pattern links are below
FYI - Bunny Pattern 2 & 3 are the easiest

The first one below is kind of fidgety but it is my favorite



 I call this one Pat the Bunny it looks like the bunny on the "Pat the Bunny" book
As always I fugured out a way to attach "Pat" to a hair clip for Annabelle & Emery

Another Bunny

And a Flat Egg for good measure



I ended up Knitting my eggs based on this corchet pattern above
When I have time I will share how I did it.
At the moment I can't remember

I also can't remember why I wanted to make a flat egg
I had trouble finding a pattern I do remember that

SimpleBeans who shared this pattern
made a really cute garland
I was probably trying to make that

?
