I had some yarn left over from the scarf I crocheted which I decided to use to make a soft toy rabbit for my nephew Toby.
I couldn't find a pattern I liked (most crochet rabbits I saw were in the Amigurami style which I'm not that fond of) so I decided to crochet without following a particular pattern. Sometimes it is actually easier, as long as you can time your increases and decreases fairly accurately. Sometimes I did and sometimes not-there was a fair amount of trial and error involved. Also I had only a certain amount of yarn and had to unravel a few times when I realised I wouldn't have enough yarn to complete the rabbit. I This is only my second crochet project and I learnt an awful lot about crochet and shaping projects.
He's not symmetrical or perfect but he was made with love, sweat and the odd exasperated sigh.
