Pin the ears in place and ladder stitch to head.

Pin ears to bunny

Pin the body to the head making sure the arms are at the sides.

Pin Bunny Legs

You can use a small white pom pom for a tail or make a tail from a small amount of white yarn – use a starter ring, then sc 2 rounds. End with a long tail and sew to the body. Don’t stuff.

All done!

    I’ve pretty much made my bunny, but I think I’m missing something.

    Am I supposed to be joining the rounds or is it continuous rounds?
    Still a novice here, but I Love the bunny.
    Thanks for your help.

I used Baby Bee Pitter Patter Eyelash Yarn. The bunnies are so soft and smooth, I can’t stop cuddling them! Thank you for sharing this pattern!
