As we all know, Ravelry is a dangerous wonderland of inspiration that sucks you in won't let go! It got me this morning with a suggestion. Looking for a beginner project for kids? Why not make Artsy Fartsy Mama's knitted bunny? Knitted? Wait, I crochet! Yup, had to try and create a crocheted version. Not bad...
Lion Brand Pound of Love in White & Turquoise
My fabric was approximately 6.25 inches square
Foundation: ch 31
Row 1: Sc in bump of 2nd chain from hook, sc in each stitch across (3o sc)
Row 2 on: Turn. Ch1, flsc in each stitch across until piece is square
Follow directions on original pattern to sew up.
I'm not quite there with this little guy yet. I think next time I'll use thinner yarn and work out a better way to stitch the back so it will be smooth, but secure.
I didn't make a pom-pom for the tail because I worry about the little pieces of yarn with young children. Tried to make one of loops which is O.K. but not great. If you have a good idea for a kid safe replacement, please leave a comment. =-)
Part of the reason I will be making more? This was the smallest bag of stuffing I could find at my local craft store!
Anyone need a bunny army? LOL
