Lastly, make a pom pom and sew it to the bunny bottom. Plus, it’s a pom pom, and who ever says no to a pom pom? This classic stuffie is just your average, no-fuss, floppy-eared bunny, simple, plain and perfect. But this curl also hides mistakes, and allows you to crochet looser than you normally would for amigurumi because he fuzz covers the holes!

When working continuous rounds, it’s less important to have stitch markers on both the first and last stitch, but it’s still useful to help you keep track of your rounds. You can pretty much split the yarn and sew wherever you’d like, but to be super secure, make sure you’ve sewn through a full stitch, and not just the fuzz.
Having already written my pattern meant one less thing to think about, so I could focus entirely on feeling my stitches and making sure I was working into the right ones.
I also received an 8mm (size L) Clover USA crochet hook while at Creativation in January – it was the perfect size to work with this yarn, allowing fairly loose stitches, and not splitting the yarn.
This is a story about an uncomplicated, classic, no-fuss crochet stuffed bunny rabbit, and the path she took from being an idea to a real bunny, just in time for Easter. Worsted weight isn’t always soft when crocheted tightly enough to prevent stuffing from coming out. I designed the bunny pattern using Lion Brand Vanna’s Colors, a discontinued yarn that I had in my stash, but it’s a good example of how the bunny would look using a normal, twisted, worsted weight or slightly bulky yarn. These PDFs are formatted without comments or ads, and have instructional photos at the bottom for optional printing.
But now that I think about it, telling a story is always good. Different yarns show different results, as you can see below. So after all was said and done, I let her have at it to see how she’d react to these new stuffed animals.
