GAUGE

Gauge is not critical for this project. Work tightly to ensure that the stuffing will not show through the stitches. 

INSTRUCTIONS

SPECIAL TERMS
lp st: Loop stitch—Wrap yarn around index finger twice and hold behind work, insert hook into indicated st and between the yarn wrap and your finger, pull all lps through st, yo and draw through all lps. Note: Loops form on side of fabric that is facing away from you.

NOTE

1.Bunny is worked in continuous rounds; do not join and do not turn at the ends of rounds. Place a stitch marker to indicate the beginning of rounds and move marker as each round is worked.

2. Stuff body, head, arms, and legs as work progresses. Do not stuff ears or tail.

3. When fastening off, always leave a 12-18"/30.5-45.5cm long tail for sewing.

HELPFUL

1. If desired, weight the bottom with a small nylon bag of beans or poly-pellets. Place the bag at the bottom of the body before beginning to stuff with fiberfill.

2. A yarn pompom may be used for the bunny's tail, instead of the crochet tail.
