Image of Best Bunny
This dear little amigurumi bunny is so quick and easy to crochet that you may have to make a whole hutch-full. Perfectly sized for children to tuck into their backpacks and only one of our many amigurumi animals. As seen in Martha Stewart Living, January 2010.

Lion Brand Wool-Ease®

GAUGE:

20 sc + 27 rows = 4 in. [10 cm]. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Best Bunny Reviewed by Diahann on 2014-01-29 *****
I loved making this bunny for my daughter to carry in her backpack on her first day of "big"school. The instructions were easy to follow with no dramas and it was a quick pattern. Best of all, my girl loved it and so did her teacher! Thank you for a lovely, free pattern.
