Totte the bunny

This pattern is made with much effort by me, Elin Werner. I´m not used to making patterns, this is actually my first one. Therefore there might be some mistakes or uncertainties in the pattern. Feel free to give me feedback so I can improve the pattern if necessary.  

This is a free pattern and you are welcome to crochet as many bunnies as you like. To sell them are, on the other hand, NOT allowed. If you want to check out my work you find me on Instagram: @elwecrochet and Facebook: Elin virkar. If you post pictures of your finished work, please be sure to give me credit. Happy crocheting!

Before you begin

For this project I have used a light worsted cotton yarn (Adlibris cotton 8/8) and crochet hook 3mm. The finished size of the bunny is approx. 33 cm(12”).

 You need one colour for the body (A), two shirt colours (B,C), one for the trousers (D) and finally orange and green for the carrot bag. You also need a pair of safety eyes, 10mm.

Body and head are crocheted in one part. That makes the assembly easier. One less part to sew on!

Be sure to stuff head and body firmly to get the right shape. When you think you have stuffed enough, stuff some more!

When it comes to the arms, you only stuff the hands firmly. The rest of the arm should just be lightly stuffed.
