Free pattern - Raving Rabbid

Photo: http://www.notcot.com/


Rayman Raving Rabbids is a video game and a TV show featuring these goofy looking creatures. Here is a pattern for a crocheted version I made. Although I definitely want to make a miniature version in the future, this pattern is for a Rabbid big enough for cuddling. Have fun! And don't forget to share your photos on Facebook.

Size

About 36 cm (14") including ears, with 3,50 mm (US size 4/E) crochet hook.

 

You will need

- Yarn. I used aran weight cotton and acrylic blend, 92m = 50g / 10 ply / 8 wpi. You will need about 80g or 150m of yarn.
- Crochet hook 3,5mm (US size 4/E) or according to the yarn.
- Stuffing - polyester fiberfill, wool, wadding etc.
- Safety toy eyes, 12 - 15 mm.
- Sheet felt and matching thread.
- Yarn needle, sewing needle, scissors, stitch marker.

 

Abbreviations

- mr, n = start the piece with an adjustable loop, n sc in to the loop.
- ch = chain stitch
- sc = single crochet stitch
- sc n = make n single crochet stitches (or ch, sl st etc.), one in each stitch
- inc = increase – make two single crochet stitches in to the same stitch
- dec = invisible decrease – crochet two single crochet stitches together
- (sc 2, inc) x n = repeat the pattern between parentheses n times
- (24) = number of stitches in a round after finishing said round

 

Notes

- Do not join at the end of each round, work in a continuous spiral.
- Use a stitch marker or a piece of yarn to mark the end or the beginning of a round. Move the marker up after completing each round.
- All stitches are worked into both loops unless stated otherwise in the pattern.

 

Body

Legs, body and head is crocheted in one piece,
starting from the bottom. Start by making a
small rectangular piece that will later be sewn
between the legs.

1: ch 3, starting in 2nd ch from hook: sc 2

Cut the yarn, leaving a long tail for sewing, and
fasten off. Make a stitch through the first chain
to form a loop you can later work a single
crochet stitch into.

Legs (make 2)

Make two legs, leave the working yarn attached
to the second leg.

1: mr, 6 = 6
2: inc x 6 = 12
3: (sc, inc) x 6 = 18

Crochet round 4 through the back loops only!

4-5: sc in each stitch = 18

Make the eye patches and cut two circles out
of felt. Make a small hole in the center. Push
the back bar of the safety eye through the hole
and attach the eyes to the body between rows
37 and 38, leaving 12 stitches (count 11 holes)
between them. Sew the eye patches to the body
through the felt circles with matching thread.

50: (sc 2, dec) x 6 = 18
51: (dec, sc) x 6 = 12
52: dec around = 6

Cut the yarn, leaving a long yarn tail, and fasten

the center tightly closed - TUTORIAL.

Eye patches (make 2)

1: mr, 8 = (8)

NB! Insert the safety eye in to the loop and
draw the loop tightly closed around it.

Fasten off cleanly and weave in the yarn
tail on the wrong side.

Tip! To make the eyes more bulging, add
another row of single crochet stitches.
Attach the eye to the eye patch (ball) not
to the head. Stuff and sew it to the head.

Hi Soe,

Make a slip knot and then crochet three chain stitches. Then crochet one sc in the 2nd chain from hook, then one sc in next chain. Fasten off.

You can make a little loop to the end of that piece, this just makes crocheting a single crochet into it easier (see photos above).

Finish both legs.

Then align the longer sides with the first two stitches of either leg and sew it to the legs (see photos above).

And now continue crocheting the body in spiral, counting both ends of the little piece (gusset) as one stitch.

I hope this helps.
