Teddy hanging out in my lovely little garden.
The crochet lop rabbit is finished! In my previous post I wrote about how I’d had some trouble getting everything right, but I did.
I’m proud to present my crochet lop rabbit, a crochet bunny with a true rabbit personality.
I think this bunny is an improved version of my first crochet lop rabbit. He looks a bit more sturdy I think. I’m really happy with the result. Many lop bunnies are two coloured, so I made a two coloured pattern. Grey and white is probably more common but I preferred to use more ‘wild’ colours. Here’s a picture of the new and the old version.
If you’re going to make this crochet bunny, the crocheting part is the easy part. You can of course also make a one coloured version, or a normal bunny, if you make the ears a little bit shorter. When you assemble the pieces, you give your rabbit his character and looks, so do it carefully.
The rabbit is 6 inch/15,3 cm long when made with worsted weight yarn. The pattern is written in standard American terms and contains a clear instruction of how to crochet and attach the rabbit. It also contains many instruction images to help getting the right result. You can find the crochet lop rabbit pattern in my shop and in my Ravelry shop. You can also order it directly from me here. Have fun in making him and if you have questions or comments, don’t hesitate.
I’m making two lop rabbit patterns! You know it’s funny how the design process goes. I planned to make one better version lop rabbit, but that didn’t go the way I planned to. Whatever I’ve tried so far, it doesn’t look better than Boefje.
The new head looks great though, except when I attach it to the body. But I can’t just let the head go. It’s a sweet little bunny face that needs a body. So another kind of doll popped into my mind. This head asks for a more cartoon-ish body, like the bears, but with big flat bunny feet.
Designing stuffed animals can be a bit unpredictable sometimes. The sketches seem clear enough, but if it doesn’t work out in crochet I need to change plans, this time with a nice advantage. For the realistic lop rabbit I’ve found a solution too.
