There have been a couple of confused bunny makers, specifically they are having trouble with the ears. So here are some more detailed instructions, which I hope will make the ear making process easier (maybe that should be easy-ear, ha ha). Ill also add a link to these instructions in the main tutorial:
Ears. You need to make 2:
Make a magic circle, Chain 1 and 6 single crochet into the circle…
Pull the magic circle tight, but do not join this or any round. All rounds are worked continuously without joining.
You can use a stitch marker, if you like to mark your rounds, but personally, because these are so small and because its more hassle to put the marker in and take it out after every round, I just count the stitches. I put the number in brackets after each round, and I think its a good idea to check you have the right number of stitches after every round! (6).
Insert your hook into stitch 1 and continue around. The first round goes like this: *SC in the next stitch, 2 SC in the next stitch*, repeat between * and * around (9).
The next round goes like this: *SC in the next 2 stitches, 2 SC in the next stitch*, repeat between * and * around (12).
Now you need to change colour…assuming you want stripy ears. If you want ears all the same color (which will be easier if you are a beginner), then ignore this step:
With the first color still connected, pull up a loop in the new color:
Flip work over (so you are on the inside of ear) and tie a secure double knot between your two threads (old and new). Once it’s all secure snip ends short so they can be tucked inside the ear and don’t get in the way…
Round 3 goes like this: SC in the next 3 stitches, 2 SC in the next stitch, repeat between * and * around (15).
Then change color again, this next row is a decrease row:
Round 7: *SC in the next 3 stitches, then 2 SC together (decrease) in the next stitch*, repeat between * and * around (12):
Round 8: SC in each stitch around (12).
Round 9: Change color and SC in each stitch around (12).
Round 10: SC in the next 2 stitches, 2 SC together (decrease) in the next stitch, repeat between * and * around (9). Before you begin the last three rounds change color… Remember that this is the final color, so I like to use the same color as the outer bunny body color… that way when you join the ears to the bunny you cant see the stitches…
Round 11: SC in each stitch around (9).
Round 12: SC in each stitch around (9).
Round 13: SC in each stitch around (9).
Fasten off and leave a long tail to sew to bunny. Here’s what the back should look like:
I really hope this helps, if you have any other questions let me know! Happy bunny making!!! Janette xx
