Woodland Bunny Granny Square - Woodland Afghan Series

by - March 19, 2017


Check out this cute little guy with his fluffy little tail and sweet pink nose!  I went with a side view of this bunny so he would fit in with all the other creatures I have designed so far. 

With Easter well on it's way, I didn't want to mistake this bunny to being too "Eastery". Does that make sense? I initially started designing just the head with two floppy ears, but it didn't say "Woodland" to me, it just said "Easter bunny".

I opted for a more realistic design, and I'm happy with how the design came out! I think he makes a wonderful addition to the blanket!


 If you are new here, you can click here to check out the Woodland Afghan Series to see how I will be making this afghan as well as a running list of the animals I have designed so far along with the links to their tutorials/patterns.

Just one more to design and that will be it for this Woodland Afghan! I am working hard to get this afghan assembled and ready to photograph once finished. Can't wait to share the last piece of this with you next week!


Materials
Worsted weighted yarn in taupe, pink
(I used Lion Brand Vanna's Choice)
Bernat pipsqueak in white 
6mm safety eye (can be substituted with french knot)
G hook
Tapestry needle
Scissors

Amazon Picks (affiliate links - You can support my blog by purchasing through these links at no extra cost to you!)


*These safety eyes are the cheapest I have found! You can purchase them at a craft store, but they are about $3 for only 10 pieces. Here you will get 100 pieces for under $7. I just ordered some more for this blanket. Although I will now have so much more than I need, I will have them on hand for future projects!

Pattern

Head - Taupe - G hook
Row 1: Magic ring, Chain 1, SC 8, join
Row 2: Chain 1, 2 SC in each stitch around, join (16)
Row 3: Chain 1, SC in two spaces, turn
Row 4: Chain 1, SC across, turn
Row 5-6: Repeat row 4
Row 7: Chain 1, SC decrease, fasten off

Main Body - Taupe - G hook
Row 1: Magic ring, Chain 2, 10 HDC, join (10)
Row 2: Chain 2, 2 HDC in each stitch, join (20)
Row 3: Chain 2, DC in two spaces, turn your work
Row 4: Chain 1, SC decrease, fasten off

Back Leg - Taupe - G hook
Row 1: Magic ring, Chain 1, 8 SC, join
Row 2: Chain 1, 2 HDC in same space, fasten off

Tail - White - G hook - Pipsqueak white yarn
Chain 3, join to first chain, fasten off

*I also used this type of yarn with the wolf square, but if you opt out of using this yarn, you can most certainly use a regular worsted weighted yarn (or even a chunky yarn if you have it). You may need to add more chains before joining to the first chain to ensure a proportionate sized tail.

Assembly

Sew the back leg onto the main body. The front leg on the body will be facing left as well as the back leg. 
Sew the head on the main body with the ear slightly slanting to the right.
Attach safety eye to the head (you will not be able to take the safety eye off once the back is attached, so ensure proper placement before attaching).
Attach tail to the main body.
Sew on nose with small amount of pink yarn with tapestry needle.


Don't forget to pin this one to your boards!
