Tobey the bunny pattern

                                         

               Tobey the bunny






Everyone loves a cute bunny and tobey the bunny is very easy to make!


Materials
Two colors of worsted weight yarn,  I used I love this cotton yarn from hobby lobby
3.5mm crochet hook
Pink embroidery thread
8mm safety eyes or 12mm will work as well
Fiber fill
Yarn needle (for sewing)
Stitch marker

Terms
Sc- single crochet (for my sc I insert hook yarn under pull through, then yarn over and pull through)  you may get a slightly larger bunny when using the normal yarn over for the entire stitch.
Mc- Magic circle
Inc- increase
Dec – decrease (recommend invisible decrease)
Sl st- slip stitch
FO- finish off
*repeat



Important please read:  You will be working in continuous rounds so do not join. Use a stitch marker to keep track of each round.
Also the safety eyes are not recommended for  children  under  3.
 Make sure you leave long tails after each body part so you can sew on to the body.

 To change color:  You can insert your hook into the last stitch of the round, yarn over and pull through, then yarn over in new color and pull through. Slip st into next stitch.  You can  sc over  yarn tails a  few  stitches then  tie  and tuck  in the back. Don’t forget to count the sl st in the next round.

Attaching the parts
Now you can sew everything together. I would use lots of pins to hold things in place.
Embroider the nose 1 round down from the eyes making an x
The ears sit on top of the head about 4 rounds down
The arms sew right under the neck on the side.
The legs you may have to move around to find the best spot.
Sew the tail on the back of the bunny about 7 rounds from the bottom is where the bottom of the tail should sit.
