This month’s Mini tier pattern is Bunny from Toy Story.
The turquoise yarn is a little lighter than it should be because I did not want to buy more yarn, so I just tried to use the colours that I had available on hand. However, I think that it still turned out well, but you can use yarn colours that you feel better suit your project. I cannot name the yarn because it was just from my stash which is not labelled well, but it is likely Stylecraft Special DK or Hayfield Bonus DK.
I decided to crochet the head and body as one continuous piece, but in the end, it meant that I did not get the sharp overhang that I wanted. So, I may revise the pattern when I get around to recording the tutorial for it so that the head and body are crocheted separately and whipstitched together.
Another change that I plan to make is adding two or three rows to the body and ears. Though I am very happy with the overall look and the likeness, I feel that making these changes will elevate this character and make him look more like the original.
This pattern is a quick one to whip up because the design is simple, and it does not require much customisation. I think the hardest thing about this project was doing the eyes so that I could capture the characters look.
Overall, Bunny measures approximately 7 inches / 18cm tall.

How did you find this project? I think that it is a good pattern for amigurumi beginners as it does not have any complicated techniques or stitches. Also, the customisation is very basic. If you are a beginner, I would like to know how you found this project.
