Another Crochet Rabbit
You may remember the darling little crochet rabbit I made a few weeks ago. Well, while that little one was under construction, I had a request to create another one. Of course, this one had to be different from the first.
I used the same pattern, available here. This time I used Lion Brand Homespun in Barley. Again, I mostly used the pattern. I kind of make changes on the fly while I work. For this pattern, I have lengthened the legs and arms. I just liked the way that looked.
The Homespun yarn is very forgiving and nice to work with. The finished bunny is very soft. If I were to make it again I think that I would have held two strands of yarn together. I really was hoping that it would be a little bigger but I didn’t want too many holes in the fabric.
Another change on this rabbit was the face. I added a nose and mouth with embroidery floss. While my embroidery skills will not win any prizes I think that she has lots of personality.
One thing that is the same between these two bunnies is the over sized tail. I think that they are my favorite part! Why is making pom-poms so much fun! For this crochet bunny, I started with a much larger pom-pom and then trim it and trim it and then trim it some more until I have the size that I want. I find that doing this gives you a very dense pom-pom.
I just can’t keep these rabbits out of the flower pot! This was a quick little project and I am always happy to take requests from my daughter.
