Read me  ~>  Work in continuous rounds, do not join. I used Red Heart Comfort yarn with a 3.75 mm hook. You can use a larger hook. Have any questions or if you come across a mistake in the pattern please leave a message in the comment section below.
Read me ~> How to read the rows: Each row has a sequence as given below. Example: 1sc then 2sc in next st means repeat that sequence 1sc then 2sc in next st followed by 1sc then 2sc in next st over and over to the end of that particular row. The number inside the parentheses ( ~ ) is the number of stitches you should have at the end of that particular row.
Read me ~>  It's a good idea to add in a marker at the end of row 2 and move that marker at the end of every row. I just use a short length of yarn and pull it through the last stitch I put in at the end of every row.

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, Wings, Nose: worsted weight yarn medium #4
7.5 mm yellow safety eyes
3.75mm hook
Pieces of Felt
yarn needle
hot glue

Special notes: * I put one eye in between the 6th and 7th row and the other eye in between the 11th and 12th row. I installed the eyes once I completed the 13th row. It's easier to do this when the body isn't so long, refer to picture. You could also put the nose and mouth in then too. I used worsted weight black yarn and whip stitched a nose in place and the mouth is a simple x shape. I put mine in after but you do what easiest for you

*switch to black on the last st of row 13. You will be switching colors at the end of every row until you reach row 22. From 22 onward you will use black only

I use the Jogless Stripe method for changing color. Using this method will give you a cleaner color transition. click here and watch the Bunny Bee tutorial

*Always knot off color changes. I found it easier to turn the piece inside out once I finished row 22 and knot off all the tails then.
