instructions
The bunny is made in the round with a continuous spiral without closing the round with a ss. Use the
stitch marker in the first stitch of each round, moving it up as you work. Head, body and legs are
made as a single piece. All other pieces are made separately and sewn to join. This pattern uses
concise crochet style, e.g. 2dc means work 1dc into each of the next 2 sts, and 6dc means work 1dc
into the next 6 sts. To make a magic ring, hold the thread in your hand, wrap working yarn around
forefinger twice to
create ring, slip ring off your finger

and insert hook to pick up first st,
ch1, then work the necessary sts for
round 1 and close the ring tightly by
pulling the loose end.
To work bobble stitch, (yrh, insert
hook in stating, yrh and pull up
loop, yrh and draw through 2 loops)
5 times, inserting the hook in the
same st each time, yrh and draw
through all loops on hook.
