Newest Crochet Triumph

  Lion Brands “Best Bunny”

I am not so new to crochet but until recently I hadn’t heard of amigurumi.  I get emails from Lion Brand all the time showcasing new patterns and materials, some of which are cute little crochet dolls and animals.  So as I was going through my emails this past week I stumbled upon a pattern for an ultra cute bunny amigurumi.  Once I decided to make the bunny, it was a non-stop race to the finish.

I worked hard and stayed up late to get the bunny finished in just a few hours.  I did not however make the bunny per the instructions.  I wanted my bunny to have a longer torso, longer skinnier arms, no legs and different ears.  At first the changes in the pattern were accidental; I was watching a Pay-Per-View and crocheting at the same time, which is never good for following a pattern.  I made my “Weebler Bunny” by adding four rows to the midsection before decreasing and totally rewrote the pattern for the arms and ears.

Creating my first amigurumi was relatively easy.  I really enjoyed the process, it was pretty simple once you see the pattern in them.  I will be designing my own from ground zero next time.  I think I am going to try to make a Murloc from the Warcraft series and also try to make a Pocoyo doll.

    These little animals are so durable my 6 month year old has slobbered, chewed, spit up and of course play with the little panada one. I have washed and dry it. So durable not a string out of place and stays in shape. Thank you so much Sara!
