bunny no. 26

Yes, I really have made 26 bunnies!  I thought it was a lot but didn't realise it was quite that many.  Wonder how long it will be before I reach 100?

Last week when I was supposed to be making felted flowers for a book review, or maybe working on my blackwork, or finishing up any of the projects I've started, I felt the urge to crochet.  This little bunny was born.

This little fella is from (that's an affiliate link, if you click over and buy something, I get a few pence towards a voucher.  I am not affiliated with the author or the book, I just own a copy (which I bought)).

I think he looks so surprised as he has a very wonky tail.

I used a 3.5mm hook and aran weight yarn for the head and limbs.  Because the yarn is so heavy, he's very thick and sturdy.  I didn't have a suitable aran for the jumper, so I used 2 strands of DK held together.  The DK yarns were different shades, I like the mottled look.  He's sitting with us in the living room at the moment.  His sister is currently being born...  Because who doesn't need 27 hand made rabbits?
