Tiny bears and bunnies

When getting ready for a craft show in May, I decided to use up some of the fingering weight cotton I had left over from larger projects and made a few cute tiny bears and bunnies. They turned out to be so popular I sold out rather quickly, so I'm making more for the next one.

Small Bunny Pattern

I made my little teddy bears a bunny cousin. Both the bears and bunnies are so quick and easy to make, the patterns turned out to be quite addictive, I've already made a whole army, which I will show you next week.

Small teddy bears

I'm still in love the little bear pattern - it's so quick and easy to make. And if using DK or even fingering weight yarn, the result is so adorably tiny. But this time I went for a chunky wool and acrylic blend, Lanagold Plus from Alize, for a more huggable size.

Fox pattern update

When I first wrote the fox pattern almost three years ago, I really wanted to use worsted weight yarn, but couldn't find a yarn thick enough in the right colors, so decided to crochet my fox holding two strands of yarn together. Which made the photos a bit confusing for some crocheters. Also, I wasn't really happy with the colors, I thought the photos could be better, pattern just a tad more clear and concise in places. Plus the neck joint was causing a bit of trouble for some of you. And we can't have that, now can we.
