Sunny Little Rabbit with one piece body



This is one of my first designs. It is easy and small. Great way to learn some new techniques. And yellow - my son's favorite color. Since the pattern is not complicated it will work on any hook size.

Supplies:
cotton yarn, 2.5 mm crochet hook, marker, stuffing, needle for sewing, scissors,
safety eyes and nose or dark yarn for those.

Start with the arms, you will be attaching them later.


Arm - make two
  1. 6 sc in magic ring
  2. [inc] 6 times (12)
  3. [inc, 3 sc] rep (15)
  4. 1sc in each st
  5. 1sc in each st
  6. [dec, 3 sc] rep (12)
  7. - 10. 1sc in each st (12) for 4 rows
Leave a tail, use it later to close the small gaps after joining with the body.
    Now continue with the legs. Finish the first one and leave a small tail, you will use that tail to close the small gap between the two legs. Do not cut off the yarn of the second one, you will continue working the body.

    Leg - make two
    1. 6sc in magic ring
    2. [inc] 6 times (12)
    3. [inc, sc] rep (18)
    4. 1sc in each st
    5. 1sc in each st 
    6. [dec, sc] rep (12)
    7. - 9. 1sc in each (12) for 3 rows
    Now after finishing the second leg, continue working on the first one:


    Body
    1. 1sc around the two legs (24) 
    2. [inc, 3 sc] rep (30)
    3. [inc, 4sc] rep (36)
    4.  1sc in each st (36) (repeat for 7 rows)
    5.  1sc in each st (36)
    6.  1sc in each st (36)
    7.  1sc in each st (36)
    8.  1sc in each st (36)
    9.  1sc in each st (36)
    10.  1sc in each st (36)
    11. [dec, 4 sc] rep (30)
    12. 1sc in each sc
    13. [dec, 3 sc] rep (24)
    14. 1sc in each st (24)    That's the time when the arms should be attached. Place some markers to  help yourself. Sew 6 stitches from the arm to 6 sts to the body. Do it again for the other arm. The next round will have the same number of stitches as the previous one.
    15.  1sc in each st (24)
    16. [dec, 4 sc] rep (20)
    17. 1sc in each st (20)
    Attaching the arms:

    Finish and cut yarn, stuff the body and continue with the head


    Head

    1. 6sc in magic loop
    2. [inc] rep (12)
    3. [inc, sc] rep (18)
    4. [inc, 2 sc] rep  (24)
    5. [inc, 3 sc] rep  (30)
    6. 1sc in each st (30) for 4 rows
    7. 1sc in each st
    8. 1sc in each st
    9. 1sc in each st
    10. [inc, 4 sc] rep  (36)
    11. [inc, 5 sc] rep  (42)
    12. 1sc in each st
    13. [dec, 5 sc] rep (36)
    14. [dec, 4 sc] rep (30)
    15. [dec, 3 sc] rep (24)
    16. [dec, 4 sc] rep (20)
    Finish and stuff the head, leave a long tail to sew the head to the body. They will have the same number of stitches so it will be easy to attach them. I don't use safety eyes, but if you do put them before sewing.

    Ear - make two
    1. 1sc in magic loop (6)
    2. [inc, sc] rep (9)
    3. 1sc in each st
    4. 1sc in each st
    5. [inc, 2 sc] rep (12)
    6. [inc, 2 sc] rep (16)
    7. 1sc in each st (16)
    8. 1sc in each st (16)
    9. [dec, 2 sc] rep (12)
    10. [dec, 2 sc] rep (9)
    11. 1sc in each st
    12. 1sc in each st
    Do not stuff the ears. Leave a long tail for sewing. I really like that part. I use pins always. You are almost done.
