I've finished this just in time for Easter. A Chocolate Bunny chair pad.



I used Sugar 'n Cream all cotton yarns and a size H hook.



The bunny pattern is from Susan Lowman's "Hot Stuff for the Holidays" wiggly trivet and coaster book.
I've used that book to make some other chair pads in the past but this is my first bunny.




Here's my own wiggly peace design chair pad. I wish the yellow were darker but it's all they had in the stores I was in. Plus, no one had true blue! So, for the blue, I had to use Sinfonia 100% cotton yarn and double up so it would be as thick as the Sugar 'n Cream yarn.



Here's a comparison shot of the chair pad with the original wiggly trivet on top. (The trivet was made from size 10 crochet thread). I wanted the chair pad to be that dark yellow too but, oh well.
(Mondrian colors always look awesome!).


The trivet patterns work great for making chair pads. You don't have to use cotton yarn either. I just thought it would be nice and durable. Many people make cotton scrubbies with the yarn so it should last a while for just sitting on.
