Baby Bunny Free Crochet Pattern

I set out to design a few animal crochet patterns using Alize Cotton Gold yarn.  I loved my version of Peter the Puppy, but not so happy with Bree the Bunny.  So I've tweaked the pattern a bit and below is the new version.  I've only made this one once and wrote the pattern as I went along, so, please, if you find any errors or typos, let me know right away so I can take a look.  

Enjoy this free pattern!  They turn out so adorable...everybody wants one!  Thank you for visiting.



Baby Bunny Amigurumi
 


1 skein each of Alize Cotton Gold and Cotton Gold Batik Yarn 55% Cotton/45% Acrylic 
      (from PerfectYarns)
Hook size 3mm
18mm round plastic safety eyes (from Cello Express)
24 mm plastic safety nose
Doll stuffing
Tapestry needle
1 Yard Ribbon



sl st - slip stitch
st - stitch
sc - single crochet
hdc- half double crochet
inc - increase (2 stitches in one)
dec- decrease (2 stitches together)
(#)- number of stitches in row


Notes: Written in US crochet terms. Since you will be mostly working in continuous rows, I highly recommend marking the beginning of each row with a piece of yarn that you run up the rows and can be pulled out when you reach the end.
