Mr Funky Bunny In A Dress
Lion Brand® Jiffy® - Wool-Ease® - Babysoft®
Pattern Number: FunkyBunny
This bunny is a little lady in her sweet dress.

The spherical crochet technique for the amigurumi makes the design look seamless and nearly machine-made.

Suggestion: Try using a smaller crochet hook when decreasing the stitches to help her keep her stuffing. This amigurumi bunny is a perfect gift for a child or the child at heart. From the book, MR. FUNKY'S SUPER CROCHET WONDERFUL. Courtesy of North Light Books.

GAUGE:
15 sc x 11 rows = 4" (10cm) with larger hook and Color A 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. Making a Gauge Swatch
Exact gauges is not imporant to this project.
