|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.
