Cute Bunnies

Materials:

– One skein of yarn in the body color of your choice.
– An oddment of white yarn for the tail.
– Embroidery floss for the nose.
– Beads for the eyes.
– A hook appropriate to the weight of the yarn. I personally used fingering weight yarn and a 2 mm hook, which resulted in an 8.5 inch bunny.
– Yarn needle.
– Embroidery needle.
– Polyfill.

The ears, head, torso and legs are all crocheted as one continuous piece, starting at the tip of the first ear.
