Finse, crochet rabbit pattern

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.

    I just love your animals. So many crochet animals don’t look anything like a real animal -and, not only that — I find some of them to be scarier than cute. I am not a crocheter, but I really want to give it a go after looking at all your wonderful little critters. I work with refugee families coming into the US, and I think that if I can find a group of volunteers to create some of these as welcome gifts for our younger children, it would be just perfect! Thank you so much for the combination of art, design, and childhood wonder — all of which are expressed in your animals. I wrote this just to let you know that your work makes me smile!
