Pattern Notes

The rabbits are worked with the join as you go technique, except for some tiny details like the bow and the ears. The face and the dots are embroidered on afterwards. The blush on the cheeks is simply done with some cosmetic blush.

For the arms you’ll need to go through both layers of the arm and the next stitch on the body.

For the main shape of Robin the Rabbit there’s no need for decreases and increases, which is what makes this pattern suitable for a beginner.

The crocheted fabric of the ears is quite firm.  Sewing them into place might be easier with a sharp needle.

Working through the back loops only gives these cuties a more modern and distinct look. The minimalistic shape also adds to this.

CC2, CC4 and CC5 – you don’t need much of these colors, a leftover of approximately 10g should suffice.

Polka dots

Cut a long tail of CC3 and CC4. Randomly place some french knots on the dress.
To make a french knot insert your needle through a stitch and come back up, wrap the yarn 3 times around your needle, insert the needle right beside the place where you came up with the needle. Skip a few stitches and come back up with your needle in the next place where you want to make a french knot.  Gently pull your yarn to form the knot. Repeat this proces as much as you like.
