Finally had time to finish this cutie of a bunny just in time for spring
Little Pea Bunny is the 1st OFFICIAL 2014 creation of Sweet N&#8217; Cute Creations
Bunny is approximately 1&#160;1/2 inches tall while the carrot is approximately 1 inch tall
I&#8217;m really excited to start designing again after quite a hiatus - but definitely a worth while one 
Just a note:
my 2014 creations will all be approximate that size since i will be using thread for most, if not all of my 2014 creations.

Anonymous: I'm having trouble with the wings on the kawaii dragon.... I'm confused by row 1 can you help me figure it out

row 1 is basically creating a little strip.

first make 8 ch stitches

then after, go to the 3rd ch from your hook and make a hdc there

make 1 of those for each ch until the end of the 8 stitches :)

if you have further questions, feel free to ask!

Anonymous: Hi! So sorry to bother you. I bought your Fifi pattern today and I'm afraid I have a question on a section I don't understand.On Ears: On Rds 2, 3, and 4 are you turning the work or crocheting around the other side such as you would on a bootie pattern for example.I apologize for bothering you but I am stumped. Thanks in advance for any guidance you can give me. Cindy

booty style pattern :) going around the entire thing - work it as a normal ami

Anonymous: I know nothing about crochet and want to learn. I have a couple of patterns saved but they require different hook sizes and I do not want to buy that many at the start. Does gauge/hook size matter for a pattern as long as the yarn I get is compatible with it? There are so many hook sizes x_X. I am using a hook size 4 with acrylic yearn worsted weight 4.

hook size 6 [G] is ideal with acrylic, but as long as you can crochet with it, it really doesn’t matter

what will happen is just a resizing of the ami [bigger or smaller depending on the hook and the tightness]

Assembly

  1. Fully stuff the head and weave all ends together to close the small opening.
  2. attach the ears to the head using safety pins like so
    image Once you’re happy with how it looks; sew it to the head. to properly secure it, i suggest drawing the yarn out through the middle part of the back of the head. this is because the body will cover that part
  3. stuff both hind and front legs; and the body
  4. attach the legs to the body like so:
    image image
    hind legs
    image hind legs and front legs with regards to the body
    the front legs are placed diagonal to the hind because the body becomes smaller as it goes towards the body
  5. sew on all the legs to the body. in sewing, you may opt to remove the stuffing in the body to give you an easier time to sew
  6. after sewing the legs, sew on the tail to the body as well
  7. fully stuff the body now
  8. take note of the diagonal of the body. the diagonal is where the head will rest
    image
  9. Once you’ve pinned the head onto the diagonal of the body, you can now sew it in place
  10. once you’re done sewing it in place, your hippo is all ready to go!!!!
