And here he is! He turned out a bit different than the sketches I made, but I don’t mind. This kind of crochet rabbit was in my mind.
As always it was a bit of a struggle to make him, but satisfying in the end. His head was finished first but I was a bit uncertain about giving him the right face. He had to have an enthusiastic expression, so the eyes needed something special. After some experiments I decided to go for eye patches, like the lop rabbit. His muzzle also had to be rabbit like. It should not stick out too much like a bear, so by making it a bit oval and adding some extra brown on it it looked good. For the body I wanted a light coloured tummy, like the fox. For a crocheted circular colour shape you need to have a lot of patience, but in the end it looked very neat. The rest of Finse went well. Only, when I thought he was finished I realized his feet where too large, so I had to make new ones. I’m very glad he’s finished now and that I was finally ably to take some pictures of him to show him to all of you!
Meet Finse, a happy rabbit amigurumi and this time not in hiding.
