Amigurumi pattern - Sleeping Bunny

Sleeping Bunny in the Clouds was my contribution for series of Easter related tutorials in croatian craft magazine Do!ts!

Sleepy is worked top-down, in continuous rounds – no joining, no slip sts, no turning work. However, you will have to mark either first or last stitch of current round!

Stuff Sleepy as you crochet!

You will need: cream and pale pink yarn od your choice, crochet hook, embroidery thread and fiber fill!

Abbreviations: ML – magic loop
                                    sc – single crochet
                                    rnd – round
                                    2sc tog – 2sc together

                                    *    * - repeat written instruction inside stars 

Let’s star!
