Crochet 101 – Easter Bunnies

In February I took a beginners crochet class just to try something new.  There were only three of us in the class and by far I was the worst student.  I think I was struggling because I also knit, and although the finished product looks similar the technique is quite different.  Or maybe it just takes me a little longer to learn either way with a little practice I was crocheting.

These are the first 3 things that I made.  The green square (if you can call it that) was my first crocheted masterpiece (kidding of course), the grey square with white edging my second attempt, and the two-tone grey scarf with blue stripe was the third.  I have since progressed a little further and am working on a blanket.  It is going to take forever and cost a small fortune, but I am committed anyway.  I will post pictures of my blanket progress in future blog posts.

Crochet Bunnies

If you are new to crochet like I am or a crochet veteran, these little bunnies are quick and fun.

Step 1. Crochet a square, mine were 8″x8″ square.

Step 2. Using an embroidery thread in a matching colour, sew a triangle.

Step 3. Pull the threads to gather a square to form the bunnies head

Step 4. Stuff the head
