Mini Chocolate Bunny


Mini Bunny 7 1/2" tall, Big Bunny is 15" tall

After making a few of the Chocolate Easter Bunnies, I thought it would be fun do a little experiment and see if I could make a smaller version.   I had some brown fingering weight sock yarn on hand, and using that and a size B/1 crochet hook, I followed the original chocolate bunny pattern exactly.  The mini bunny came out to be about 7 1/2" tall.  The original is about 15" tall, so this one came out at 1/2 the size.  I didn't measure out how much fingering weight yarn it took, but I have plently left over in my ball to make several more.  So little Eli (I can't call him Baby Eli anymore, because he is 1 now and does not like to be called a baby) may have a whole herd of these in his Easter Basket this year.  :)

Your "chocolate" rabbits are, by far, my favorite this Easter in the crochet world.

This worked up quickly and so cute for my brand new granddaughter for Easter. Used Red Heart Soft yarn that has a slight sheen; looks real! Thanks for a great pattern. Can't wait to try another of your darling patterns!
