Lil' Bunny pattern
Lil bunny pattern (Original pattern by Caroline Chrisco)
6mm safety eyes
Pattern is worked in continuous rounds unless noted otherwise. Do not join.
Begin at top of head:
Rd. 1 Make a magic circle and sc 6 into it. (6sc)
Rd.2 2 sc in next stitch; repeat around (12sc)
Rd. 3 2 sc in next stitch, 1 sc in next stitch; repeat around (18sc)
Rd. 4-7 sc around
*I usually place the eyes after this round*
Rd. 8 2sc in next stitch, sc in next 2 stitches; repeat around (24sc)
Rd. 9-12 sc around
*I embroider the mouth after these rounds*
Rd. 13 Sc in inside loop only; repeat around (24sc)
Rd. 14 (Continue working in inside loop only)Sc decrease then sc in next 2 stitches; repeat around(18sc)
Rd. 15(Continue working in inside loop only) Sc decrease then sc in next stitch; repeat around(12sc)
*Stuff only until just past the 13 round(where you started working in the inside loop, there should be a definite line)*
Rd. 16 (Continue working in inside loop only)Sc decrease around (6sc)
I weave my end in and out of each of the remaining 6sc and pull gently until the hole cinches up neatly, then I weave in my end.
If you didn’t fill too full, you should be able to push in the bottom of your bunny for a flat sitting surface.
(I use the 13th round as my guide, it’s the first round of inside loop stitches. I push it in until it reaches that round.)
Rd. 1 Sc in 2nd chain from hook then 12 sc down, 3 sc in last chain space. Working up opposite end of starting chain 12 sc;
3 sc in the beginning chain.
Rd. 2 12 sc; 3 sc next sc; 14 sc; slip stitch in next stitch; fasten off.
*You should a long, wavy oval.*
I make a pom-pom and attach to back. You could also use a store bought one too.
