General


1.In every part you crochet in a round using the spiral method, you should place a marker (pm). I recommend to use a different color of yarn than the color that is being crocheted as markers. I pull the marker with me while I crochet each rnd and keep all the markers in their place till the bunny is completed. The markers will help you to join all the parts, to locate the eyes and embroider the nose. If you look at the picture bellow, you will see my markers on each part, except the head, since they are located at its “back”.

When there is a need for additional markers, the instructions will be marked in red.

2.All parts will be joined with the yarn we are crocheting with, except the arms and the ears, which I recommend to join with a double sewing thread as I will explain later.


3.Instructions for certain actions will be followed by photo tutorials / video tutorials.

4.X sc = crochet 1 sc to each of next X sts => 3 sc = crochet 1 sc in each of next 3 sts.

5.We will repeat instructions in square brackets [ ] the number of times written after the brackets. For example, view the instructions in rnd 3 of the head and its “translation” Rnd 3 [inc, 1 sc in next st] * 6 times (18) => [crochet 2 sc in next st, 1 sc in next st] now, repeat instructions in square brackets 5 times more.

6.Instructions in round brackets ( ) = crochet all the instructions in brackets to the st mentions after them as you can see in the flower in page 23.

7.At each rnd / row end, the total number of sts will be mentioned in round brackets ( ). At the end of rnd 3 of the head you should have 18 sts.
