PATTERN

PART 1 – BOY & GIRL

HEAD

Lightly stuffed

Using colour (A) yarn make a mc

Helpful hint: move the stitch marker and place in the last stitch of each row and this will help keep your stitch count correct and help with row counting, I have made this pattern more times than I can remember, and I still use a stitch marker otherwise I get my final stitch count incorrect, and because we are working quite tightly in the round, I weave my beginning tail in whist working round 3.

Round 1:             ch 1, sc 6 into mc, place stitch marker in 6th sc and continue to work in the round (6 sc)

Round 2:              sc 2 into each st (12 sc)

Helpful hint: with my patterns, I usually always start with an increase in the 1st stitch, so if your increase stitch falls in the first stitch of the increase stitch from the last row, your stitch should be correct.

Round 3:              *sc 2 into next st, sc into next st* rep *.* 5 more times (18 sc)

Round 4:              *sc 2 into next st, sc into next 2 sts* rep *.* 5 more times (24 sc)

Round 5:              *sc 2 into next st, sc into next 3 sts* rep *.* 5 more times (30 sc)

Round 6:              sc into next 30 sts (30 sc)

Round 7:              *sc 2 into next st, sc into next 4 sts* rep *.* 5 more times (36 sc)

Round 8:              sc into next 36 sts (36 sc)

Round 9:              repeat round 8 (36)

Round 10:           *sc 2 into next st, sc into next 5 sts* rep *.* 5 more times (42 sc)

Round 11:           sc into next 42 sts (42 sc)

Round 12-13:    repeat round 11 (42 sc)

Helpful hint: if you are using a safety nose, you can place it just above row 2, if you are wanting to embroider a nose, you can do that when the head is finished and stuffed, and you can make an embroidered nose just above row two for the “v” and then make the stripe over the magic circle and row 1 and the bottom of row 1 and row 2 – hope that makes sense –  I have used black cotton but a pink nose would look adorable too, so use whatever you think will look best. Or you can use a safety nose and just embroider a straight short line downwards to make the safety nose look a bit more rabbity 🙂

Round 14:           *sc 2 into next st, sc into next 6 sts* rep *.* 5 more times (48 sc)

Round 15:           *sc 2 into next st, sc into next 7 sts* rep *.* 5 more times (54 sc)

Round 16:           sc into next 54 sts (54 sc)

Round 17-19     repeat round 16 (54 sc)

Helpful hint: insert safety eyes in between row 15 and 16, about 20 stitches apart.

 Round 20:           *sc 2 into next st, sc into next 8 sts* rep *.* 5 more times (60 sc)

Round 21:           sc into next 60 sts (60 sc)

Round 22:           repeat round 21 (60 sc)

Round 23:           inv sc2tog, sc into next 8 sts* rep *.* 5 more times (54 sc)

Round 24:           inv sc2tog, sc into next 7 sts* rep *.* 5 more times (48 sc)

Round 25:           inv sc2tog, sc into next 6 sts* rep *.* 5 more times (42 sc)

Round 26:           inv sc2tog, sc into next 5 sts* rep *.* 5 more times (36 sc)

Round 27:           sc into next 36 sts (36 sc)

Round 28:           inv sc2tog, sc into next 4 sts* rep *.* 5 more times (30 sc)

Round 29:           inv sc2tog, sc into next 3 sts* rep *.* 5 more times (24 sc)

Round 30:           inv sc2tog, sc into next 2 sts* rep *.* 5 more times (18 sc)

Helpful hint: you can stuff the head now, and then just add more in before you close off after the last round, the head should be firm, but not hard, think “squishy”J .

Round 31:           inv sc2tog, sc into next st* rep *.* 5 more times (12 sc)

Round 32:           inv sc2tog, rep 5 more  times (6 sc) cut yarn, ss into each sc and pull tight, cut yarn, leaving a tail about 20cm long to use to attach the head to the body later.
