A Crochet Bunny Soft Toy is Not Just for Easter

A Crochet Bunny Soft Toy is Not Just for Easter

I admit I have developed a bit of a bunny addiction - it is my favourite soft toy to make. But after spending a week knitting Sirdar Bunny soft toy, I was ready for something quicker.

These two adorable bunnies were crocheted by me for new babies in my family to help them celebrate their first Easter. I think you can guess one is a boy and one is a girl :).

These bunnies are from no particular single pattern - I've made it up by following web tutorials on amigurumi shaping (I strongly recommend Planet June video tutorials on YouTube as she's the best!!!), and some Crochet Bunnies, which can be found on Ravelry. These were made in baby soft Aran value yarn.

I loved making them so much, I was having trouble parting with them. And who's to say that a bunny is just for Easter? In fact, I'm making another one right now for us to keep.

Adorable Knitted Sirdar Snuggly Bunny

Adorable Knitted Sirdar Snuggly Bunny

This toy is knitted based on a pattern "Bunny in Sirdar Snuggly DK (1456)". The pattern is easy to follow BUT it is all knitted in separate pieces, and than sewn together. It does take a while to sew, but the end result is worth it. I'm sure there is a way to knit it in the round to avoid it, but since it was my first attempt, I just followed the instructions to the letter.

The yarn used was from a "my first knitting kit" that I bought in a toy store for my daughter to learn to knit. She got bored after about 100 rows of knitting a bag, so I frogged it and turned it into this cute and adorable unicorn - she enjoys it so much better than the would-be bag!
