st = stitch
sc = single crochet
2tog = 2 stitches together
sl st = slip stitch
f/o =  finish off


What I used to make the Bunny:

Body, Ears, Tires, Blanket Holder: worsted weight yarn medium #4
9mm black safety eyes
9mm safety nose
3.75mm hook
Pieces of Felt
yarn needle
hot glue

Special notes: I worked in continuous rounds with a 3.75mm hook.  Have any questions or if you come across a mistake in the pattern please leave a message in the comment section below.
 * I put one eye in between the 8th and 9th row and the other eye in between the 15th and 16th row. The nose is centered just below the eyes. It is difficult to get the yarn close to the safety nose once it's installed so insert a length of yarn through first where the nose goes in then put the nose in. Shape the mouth then knot off the ends on the inside of the head, refer to picture

TIRES make 8:

 
* I used black yarn for the tires but if you find it difficult to work with black yarn then choose another color. Tires don't need to be black :)

Sew 2 pieces together. Cut a small circle from white felt. I used a penny as a template. Hot glue the circles to one side of a tire. Sew the top part of the tires to the Bunny, sewing around the felt OR sew the tires in place then glue on the felt pieces. Do whatever is easiest for you

CROSS:

cut a piece of orange felt and hot glue in place
