Spring Bunny

IMG_1941

Nothing says spring like a cute, little bunny. This pattern was designed using size 6 bulky yarn, and the finished bunny measures approximately 9½-10 inches tall. It can be made with any yarn, though. I used 3 different yarns to make my spring bunnies.

IMG_1924

The Go For Faux yarn is kind of tough to work with because you can’t see the stitches. On the plus side, that means you can’t see if you’ve messed it up. Take it one row at a time, and be sure to use stitch markers and count your stitches in each row. It makes such cute, soft, fluffy bunnies that it’s totally worth the extra work.

IMG_1945

You can also make these bunnies with worsted weight yarn. I used Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice in pink and silver blue. Use a G(4mm) hook, and 12mm eyes. These finished bunnies are approximately 6-6½ inches tall.

Jellyfish Bean Bag Balls

img_0502b

My boyfriend is a LARPer (LARP = Live Action Role Playing), and for Christmas I made him some spell balls. While he’ll use these as fireballs and lightning bolts, you could make these bean bag jellyfish in many different colors. These jellyfish bean bag balls are a great toy for kids. Made with cotton yarn and filled with poly-pellets and poly-fil, they’re perfect for any bean bag games you can come up with. 

If you want a pattern that you can save on your computer and easily print, this pattern is available in my Ravelry shop. I love printing patterns and saving them in a binder to keep track of the ones I’ve done and the ones I still plan to do.

Abbreviations:

ch: chain

sc: single crochet

inc: increase (2 single crochets in one loop)

dec: decrease (pull yarn through loop, pull yarn through second loop, yarn over and pull through all loops)

Materials needed:

Any cotton worsted weight yarn. These can also be made with acrylic worsted weight yarn, but the acrylic will fray over time and the cotton won’t.

G (4mm) crochet hook

Poly-fil

Poly-pellets

Nylons

Yarn needle

Black embroidery thread

 

This pattern is worked “in-the-round”, and stitches are worked through both loops unless otherwise noted. 

 

 

Making the weighted pouches

You don’t have to use the poly-pellets if you don’t want to, but it gives them a bit of extra weight so they fly better when you throw them.

img_2333

I got the nylon stockings so they were already 2 individual pieces. By cutting them in half, I was able to make 4 pouches using 1 set of nylons.

img_2335

With the toe part, you just fill it and tie the end. With the other half, tie a knot at one end first. Fill each of them with ¼  cup of poly-pellets. Tie a knot in the top to close it.

img_2337

This extra bit of weight really does help them to go further when you throw them, but you can just fill them with regular poly-fil if you’d like.

img_2339

Ball:

Row 21: *Dec in first 2 stitches, sc in next stitch, repeat from * around. (10 stitches)

Row 22: Dec around. (5 stitches)

Sew end shut and tie off.

Tails:

Crochet a chain longer than you want the tail to be. I used starting chains of 30 and 40 because I wanted different lengths for them. Work 3 sc’s into each chain. Be sure to leave a long tail at the beginning and end of each curl to attach it.

img_0709

Attach the tails on the bottom. Use embroidery thread to sew on a face. I had fun making different faces for mine. I did a happy face, a scared face, an angry face, And a “how YOU doin’” face.

Snowman Ornament

IMG_0168

I absolutely love snowmen. I also love that they’re a decoration you could leave up all winter. My crocheted Christmas tree really needed to have a snowman on it, so I worked up this quick little snowman to hang on there.

This pattern is so fast to make, and it doesn’t use much yarn at all.
