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

Placement of eyes and mouth: Even tho we use the jogless stripe method to change colors there will still be a bit of a jump, so make sure to install the eyes on the opposite side of the color change. 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. I also put the mouth in then too. I used worsted weight black yarn and whip stitched the mouth in then knotted off the ends inside the head

Moshi Bunny
I'm using some pictures from the Rocket Bunny pattern since some parts are the very same
Tip* click on pictures to enlarge them

**There is a print friendly button at the bottom of this pattern. Use that to save the pattern and you can also print without images to save on ink. The pdf version is not that great as the pictures and text don't always line up.

BODY: starting with white
1) magic circle with 6st (6)  
2) 2sc in each st (12)
3) 1sc then 2sc in next st (18)
4) 1sc in next 2st, 2sc in next st (24)
5) 1sc in next 3st, 2sc in next st (30)
6-13) 1sc in each st for 8 rows switching colors on last st of row 13

Tip* We're using the Jogless Stripe method for changing color. Using this method will give you a cleaner color transition. Once you switch colors sl st the first st of the next row then continue on with you row as normal. Don't forget to knot of the color changes once you get a row or 2 done

continuing now with alternate color

14) sl st first st, 1sc in next 29st (30)
15-21) 1sc in each st for 7 rows
22) 1sc in next 3st then 2tog (24)
*stuff doll, you can keep stuffing as you decrease the hole
23) 1sc in next 2st then 2tog (18)
24) 1sc then 2tog (12)
25) 1sc then 2tog (8)

f/0 then use the yarn needle and weave in and out of those last 8st, pull on yarn tail to close up the hole. Knot off then hide yarn tail inside body

EARS: with white make 2
1) magic circle with 4st (4)

2) 2sc in each st (8) 
3-8) 1sc in each st for 6 rows
sl st into next st and f/o leaving long tail for sewing. You do not stuff the ears. I sewed the ears in line with the eyes. The corner of the 1st ear is on row 6 and the corner of the 2nd ear is on row 12. Pin the ears in place and make sure you are happy with the placement before putting the stitches in. I found it easier to glue the felt in place after the ears were sewn in to avoid having to get your yarn needle through glue (this would be difficult)

TAIL:with white
1) magic circle with 6st (6)
2) 1sc in next 2st then 2sc in next st (8)
3) 1sc in each
st sl st next st and f/o leaving a long tail for sewing. You can stuff a bit then place on body and sew into place. Hide yarn tail inside body when done.

Tip* on this small pieces that take just a little a bit of stuffing I make the starting tail a bit longer than normal and use the starting tail to stuff the piece

STRAWBERRY: make as many as you like
cut a strawberry shape from red felt then cut a stem from green felt. With a needle and white thread add in some seeds using a simple stitch. Glue the stem onto the top of the strawberry then glue the whole piece onto the bunny body.
