Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Crocheting in spiral.
  • Single crochet stitch.
  • Increasing and decreasing.

Pattern Description:

Includes one PDF file on 9 pages with all the instructions needed to make your own long-legged toy bunny.

Pattern is written in English, using US crochet terminology. I included detailed instructions, many step-by-step photos and useful tips and tricks.

In this tutorial I will explain starting a piece with an adjustable loop (magic ring), finishing a piece, joining pieces, knotting and hiding yarn tails. Pattern includes unlimited support from me via email.

For a little preview, take a look at the first three pages - http://engsidrun.spire.ee/blogs/media/blogs/a/patterns/EN-002_preview.pdf

Gauge:

You can use the same pattern to make smaller or larger toys by using finer or bulkier yarns. Make sure to pick a crochet hook at least a size smaller than suggested on the yarn label and crochet tightly enough to achieve a tight gauge that will not allow the stuffing to show through the fabric.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • 28 cm (11") with DK weight cotton blend and a 2,50 mm crochet hook

Materials:

  • Yarn. I used DK weight cotton and acrylic blend, 120m/50g (131yds/50g) / 8 ply / 11 wpi. You will need about 80g or 192m (210yds) of yarn.
  • Crochet hook, 2,5 - 3,5 mm (US size C/2 - 4/E), or according to the yarn.
  • Stuffing - polyester fiberfill, wool, wadding etc.
  • 9 - 12 mm (1/3 - 1/2 in) safety toy eyes or buttons, beads, felt etc.
  • Embroidery floss.
  • Yarn needle, scissors, stitch marker.
  • Ribbon, thread and sewing needle.

Suggested yarn:

210 yards of DK weight
