Free Crochet Pattern: Mr Funky Bunny In A Dress

Pattern #: FunkyBunny
This bunny is a little lady in her sweet dress. The spherical crochet technique for the amigurumi makes the design look seamless and nearly machine-made. Suggestion: Try using a smaller crochet hook when decreasing the stitches to help her keep her stuffing.

Mr Funky Bunny In A Dress

Lion Brand« Jiffy® - Wool-Ease® - Babysoft®

GAUGE:

15 sc x 11 rows = 4" (10cm) with larger hook and Color A When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Mr Funky Bunny In A Dress Reviewed by Alli on 2012-03-08 *****
This is a pretty easy pattern. I did have a little trouble with the dress, being a fairly new crocheter. I made two of these, and made one into a boy by turning the dress into shortalls! Oh, I also made them tails since there wasn't one in the pattern. They're really cute and I plan on making more!
