Amigurumi Bunny Basket Reviewed by Darlene Hollar on 2015-03-27 **
Basket was easy! Handle I had to improvise. No way would a nine inch handle work on a nine inch basket. EARS did not work out at all! Pattern said to do rounds and I got the look of upper ear but no length on it. Am I only one that had this problem?
