Blue Bunny


I made these blue bunnies for my Grandaughters


I used this pattern
I had trouble with this pattern last year

So... I changed it to suit my style.

This is how I did it

My Blue Bunny
Crochet Pattern

F size hook
Lily’s Sugar’n’Crème Cotton Yarn
Hdc = half double crochet
Ss = Slip Stitch
Sc = Single Crochet
Dc = Double Crochet
Triple Crochet
Chain
Magic Circle aka Adjustable Ring

Bunny Head
Work 10 hdc into
Magic Circle
aka “Adjustable Ring” Ss to join in first Hdc
Chain 1 (makes a tiny nose point)Ss into next 3 stitches

Chain 6 (beginning front foot & body)
Hdc into 2nd chain from hook and into next 3 stitches, Sc into last stitch

Chain 2, turn work Dc into same stitch and into next 3 stitches (do not work into last stitch, note: last stitch forms front foot), you should have 5 dc now (this is the upper middle of body)

Middle body
Chain 2, turn work Dc into same stitch and 4 more Dc into previous row,  note: 6 Dc

Chain 2, turn work 6 hdc, chain 1, do not turn, sc into same stitch twice ( forms back foot) Sc in next 2 stitches (forms Bunny Bottom), chain 3 (tail), Sc in next 2 stitches, begin to  Ss across the back of bunny Ss to join to head, Ss into head 2 more times, (Begin Ears) Chain 3

Ears
Work 2 triple crochets, chain 3 all into same stitch, bind off pull loose end to back pull magic circle closed tie loose ends together trim off excess.

Tie a small bow tie around the neck

Finished

Pinch, Pull and Press with low heat iron to block if desired

The center of the magic circle for the head makes a sort of eye, but one can add decorations if so desired, note: I used pom-poms for tail and eye

This is a fidgety crochet project, so don’t give up on it, I think it makes a cute bunny and I hope my directions are helpful and understandable, if not I am sorry and all I can say is I tried J


I have blue & white bunnies in my Etsy shop this week

Aww... How cute are these! I do love this new blue it's perfect for spring. Never made a granny square??? They are a little addictive. So beware! Sorry I haven't had a chance to retest the flower pattern. Its still on my to do list. Hopefully I will check it off by the end of the month. Happy weekend. :)
