I wish I had a written down pattern to share for this, but I just did it completely freehand and made so many changes along the way.  I suppose my only consolation is to encourage you to, hey, if you see something you want to crochet, ANYTHING, you totally can.  It's all trial and error, but it will work out eventually.  Smiley
This Spring I was completely addicted to Raving Rabbids TV Party and needed something to extend the experience.

He's about 17" tall and crocheted completely freeform. I just increased and decreased around to give him a little belly and hips (they're a bit chubby, rabbids) and even a little butt. The arms I sewed separately and tried to stitch back and forth only on one side of the arm opposite where they would join the body to give a shoulder-like effect. The ears are just rows, and there are several pipe cleaners in each, extending into the head, to hold them up. The paw pads and inner ears are just rows.
The mouth was tough. It's a single chain the exact circumference of the mouth, hand sewed onto the black felt, and then the chain is hand sewed onto the face at an angle to cover up the edge of the felt.  Now that was a pain!

He's been officially named "Gahhh!" by the player who always picks that name in the video game.  (I myself prefer Bwahhh!)

If you want to give him a try, this panda bear pattern should help you get started with the legs, which were not attached, but started individually and then incorporated with each other in developing the body.  Then just increase around and decrease til you get a pear-shaped body with a small neckhole, then increase until you get a proportionate head circumference and then stick with that stitch count for the same height as the body, abruptly decreasing at the end.

When I saw this on the screen, I literally said "Raving Rabbits! Ahh!"
Well, now I know it's Rabbids lol.
I played the game at my friend's house and ever since we've been screaming "AHH!!" at each other randomly. I love the eyes,especially the partially closed one. Great job! He looks really good! Smiley
