Welcome to a slightly different pattern instructions! This pattern was designed online using a program that allows you to design the graph for free! Yes, free! It takes a bit of getting used to but once you get the hang of it, it’s a huge help when you work it up. They even include a row highlighter so you can easily keep track of where you are in the graph. I have linked to everything below and you can even get straight to my design to follow along there. This was a really fun pattern to design and work up. Watching the face of the bunny come together is really exciting to watch, every row has a meaningful impact! I really hope you enjoy this as much as we did!
This pattern uses traditional C2C methodology. We are using two different yarns with different gauges so there are slight modifications we’ll make to adjust for that. We need to maintain the same block sizing for each yarn type so there are some small tweaks to look out for! For a refresher on how to work that up, see C2C spotlight stitch below.
- 5 Balls of Bernat Pipsqueak in Elephant (for Bunny)
- 3 Balls of Bernat Softee Baby in White (for Backdrop and eyes)
- 1 Ball of Bernat Softee Baby in Prettiest Pink (for nose and ears)
- 1 Ball of Bernat Softee Baby in Baby Grey (for paws and eyes)
- 4.00 mm crochet hook
- Tapestry needle
Crochet Gauge: 16 sc and 19 rows with a 4 mm (U.S. G/6) crochet hook
Beg = Beginning
Ch = Chain
Dc = Double crochet
Inc = Increasing
Rem = Remaining
Rep = Repeat
Rnd(s) = Round(s)
RS = Right side
Sc = Single crochet
Sl st = Slip stitch
Sp(s) = Space(s)
St(s) = Stitch(es)
Block with Baby Softee: (Sl st. Ch 3. 3 dc)
Block with Pipsqueak: (Sl st. Ch 3. 2 dc)
Refer to Graphgan above. You will start with 1-1 in the bottom left corner.
With White, ch 6.
1st row: (RS). 1 dc in 4th ch from hook. 1 dc in each of next 2 ch. Turn. 1 block made.
2nd row: Ch 6. 1 dc in 4th ch from hook. 1 dc in each of next 2 ch – beg block made. (Sl st. Ch 3. 3 dc) in next ch-3 sp – block made. Turn. 2 blocks.
3rd row: Beg block. (Block in next ch-3 sp) twice. Turn. 3 blocks.
4th row: Beg block. (Block in next ch-3 sp) 3 times. Turn. 4 blocks.
5th row: Beg block. (Block in next ch-3 sp) 4 times. Turn. 5 blocks.
Continue in this pattern, inc 1 block each row until there are 55 blocks, keeping in mind the color changes along the way.
NOTE: When you attach Pipsqueak yarn, adjust the blocks as follows:
Block: (Sl st, ch 3, 2dc)
Rows 56-59: Begin to decrease along the bottom of the work while continuing to extend along the side.
To decrease: Sl st in each of first 3 dc. *Block in next ch-3 sp. Rep from * to last ch-3 sp. (Do not make a block). Turn.
Keeping cont of chart, rep last row until 1 block rem. Fasten off.
