I mentioned before that I have been working on a project for my friend Jini to give to her new nephew. She requested a bunny holding a blanket with a pocket for her to include a letter. we talked about the type of blanket and colors and then I started looking for patterns. Nothing really grabbed me and since it was to be crocheted I figured I'd just make up my own.
I am tickled with the way he came out!
He's big, about 14 inches sitting up and much longer if you include his legs.
I like to use fabric in my toy creations so he has a fleece nose and cotton lining in his ears and pocket and on his hands and feet.
The blanket looks like blocks but it's actually strips put together with single crochet to form a ridge. The blanket is made from Caron Simply Soft and the bunny from Bernat Cotton Tots which is one of my favorite toy making yarns.
I'm very smitten with him and happy I actually wrote down his pattern so I can make another one. This one will be off in the mail soon and I'll be sad to see him go but know he's heading to a loving home. Bye bye Bunny Love.
