Crochet Bunny Rabbits
Tuesday, 26 May 2015
I think my crochet skills are improving because quite frankly...how cute are these! I found this pattern via Pinterest and (like just about everything I find on Pinterest) knew I had to have a go at making them. I still have a lot to learn when it comes to wool blends and weights and what size hook to use for crocheting, but for this project I went for a 100% recycled wool blend which I think gives it a nice look and feel. The pink bunny I did first and the legs turned out shorter and fatter than my second attempt with the blue. I think the blue bunny is more true to the pattern but I actually prefer the look of the pink, so when I make my next one I may have to figure out how I did it 'wrong'.
I added pom-poms for the tails and Reuben has already got his eye on the pink one which of course according to the boys is the mummy one while the blue is daddy. And as we're on that point why is it that all of a sudden Jacob thinks anything pink is to do with girls and blue boys when we have never encouraged anything of the sort? He's even gone so far as to say that songs with female singers are mummy's songs! I think a talk is needed asap. Anyway I digress...I like the idea of adding a little bell inside the rabbit and trying more colours. I also think they need names!
What do you think?
