Making a pincushion is a delicate task. Ofcourse, you don't want to make it so cute that you don't want to jab your collection of pointy things in it. On the other hand, you'll also want to make it look cool enough, otherwise you're reminded of your failed project every time you go crafting!  Grin

My last pincushion suffered from the latter problem, so it was time to make a new one. So without much further ado, I bring you... The Ugly Bunny!



And if you want to make your own ugly bunny, just grab a skein of obnoxiously colored yarn and get started!

Ugly bunny pincushion

Materials:

- One skein of brightly colored yarn for the body.
- Scrap of yarn in a contrasting color for the nose.
- Scraps of yarn in black and white for the face.
- A hook appropriate to the weight of the yarn. I personally used sport weight yarn and a 2.5 mm hook.
- Yarn needle.
- Polyfill.

Eye
R1: With white yarn, make 6 sc into a ring, sl st 1 and fasten off.
Embroider on a pupil with black yarn.

Body
R1: With the body color of your choice, ch 17, turn, sc inc in the 2nd ch from the hook, sc in next 14 ch, sc inc in next ch, continue to work along the bottom of the starting chain: sc inc in next ch, sc in next 14 ch, sc inc in next chain. Continue working in the round. (36)
R2: sc inc in next st, sc in next 16, sc inc in next 2 st, sc in next 16 st, sc inc in next st (40)
R3-R17: Work even (40)
R18: sc in next st, sc next 2 st tog, sc in next 18 st, sc next 2 st tog, sc in next 17 st (38)
R19-R20: Work even (38) This is a good time to sew on the eye and embroider the face.
R21: sc in next st, sc next 2 st tog, sc in next 17 st, sc next 2 st tog, sc in next 16 st (36)
R22-R23: Work even (36)
R24: sc in next st, sc next 2 st tog, sc in next 16 st, sc next 2 st tog, sc in next 15 st (34)
R25: Work even (34)
R26: sc in next 8 st, skip next 22 st, sc in next 4 st. Continue to work in the round over the last 12 st, to form the first leg (12)
R27: sc in next st, sc next 2 st tog, sc in next 9 st (11)
R28: sc in next st, sc next 2 st tog, sc in next 8 st (10)
R29: sc next 2 st tog, sc in next 8 st (9)
R30: sc next 2 st tog, sc in next st, around (6) Fasten off.

Reattach yarn in the 14th stitch of R25.
R26: sc in next 12 st. Continue to work in the round over these 12 st, to form the second leg (12)
R27: sc in next 5 st, sc next 2 st tog, sc in next 5 st (11)
R28: sc in next 4 st, sc next 2 st tog, sc in next 5 st (10)
R28: sc in next 4 st, sc next 2 st tog, sc in next 4 st (9)
R30: sc next 2 st tog, sc in next st, around (6) Fasten off.

Sew up the holes in the feet. Stuff the body semi-firmly through the opening in the crotch, then sew up the crotch as well.

Arms (make two)
R1: With the body color of your choice, make 6 sc into a ring.
R2: sc inc in next st, around (12)
R3-R9: Work even (12) Fasten off.

Do not stuff the arms, but fold them flat at the top and sew them to the sides of the body.

Longer ear
R1: With the body color of your choice, make 6 sc into a ring.
R2: sc inc in next st, around (12)
R3-R10: Work even (12) Fasten off.

Shorter ear
The ears are lopsided on purpose. To make the shorter ear, follow the pattern for the longer ear, but fasten off after 7 rounds.

Do not stuff the ears, but fold them flat. Then fold the bottom part in half and secure to create the crease in the ear. Sew the ears to the top of the head.



EDIT:



I also decided to make a smaller version of the bunny and use it as a bag charm!



And here's the pattern for the smaller version:

Ugly bunny bag charm

Materials:

- One skein of brightly colored yarn for the body.
- Scrap of yarn in a contrasting color for the nose.
- Scraps of finer black and white yarn for the face and loop.
- Hooks appropriate to the weight of the yarn. I personally used sport weight yarn for the body and fingering weight for the black and white details, using a 2.5 mm hook and a 2 mm hook respectively.
- Yarn needle.
- Polyfill.

Eye
R1: With white yarn, using the smaller hook, make 6 sc into a ring, sl st 1 and fasten off.
Embroider on a pupil with black yarn.

Body
R1: With the body color of your choice, ch 12, turn, sc inc in the 2nd ch from the hook, sc in next 9 ch, sc inc in next ch, continue to work along the bottom of the starting chain: sc inc in next ch, sc in next 9 ch, sc inc in next chain. Continue working in the round. (26)
R2: sc inc in next st, sc in next 11, sc inc in next 2 st, sc in next 11 st, sc inc in next st (30)
R3-R14: Work even (30)
R15: sc in next st, sc next 2 st tog, sc in next 13 st, sc next 2 st tog, sc in next 12 st (28)
R16-R17: Work even (28) This is a good time to sew on the eye and embroider the face.
R18: sc in next st, sc next 2 st tog, sc in next 12 st, sc next 2 st tog, sc in next 11 st (26)
R19: Work even (26)
R20: sc in next 7 st, skip next 17 st, sc in next 2 st. Continue to work in the round over the last 9 st, to form the first leg (9)
R21: sc in next st, sc next 2 st tog, sc in next 6 st (Cool
R22: sc in next st, sc next 2 st tog, sc in next 5 st (7)
R23: sc next 2 st tog, sc in next 5 st (6) Fasten off.

Reattach yarn in the 12th stitch of R19.
R20: sc in next 9 st. Continue to work in the round over these 9 st, to form the second leg (9)
R21: sc in next 3 st, sc next 2 st tog, sc in next 4 st (Cool
R22: sc in next 3 st, sc next 2 st tog, sc in next 3 st (7)
R23: sc in next 2 st, sc next 2 st tog, sc in next 3 st (6) Fasten off.

Arms (make two)
R1: With the body color of your choice, make 6 sc into a ring.
R2: sc inc in next st, sc in next st, around (9)
R3-R7: Work even (9) Fasten off.

Do not stuff the arms, but fold them flat at the top and sew them to the sides of the body.

Longer ear
R1: With the body color of your choice, make 6 sc into a ring.
R2: sc inc in next st, sc in next st, around (9)
R3-R8: Work even (9) Fasten off.

Shorter ear
The ears are lopsided on purpose. To make the shorter ear, follow the pattern for the longer ear, but fasten off after 6 rounds.

Do not stuff the ears, but fold them flat. Then fold the bottom part in half and secure to create the crease in the ear. Sew the ears to the top of the head.

Loop
Attach black yarn to the top of the head. Using the smaller hook, ch 60, sl st to the top of the head. Fasten off and weave in the ends. The loop is fairly long so that the bunny itself can pass through it, which allows you to tie it to your bag easily.

I made my own Ugly Bunny!!
I made the bag charm one, but used a worsted weight. I also put cardboard in him, before stuffing, so I don't poke myself. Then I put a strap of elastic on it so that I can put it on my arm when I'm sewing.





Thanks again for the great pattern!!

I started out with your ugly bunny pattern and they morphed into something else.  But aren't they cute.  Your pattern inspired me.

I just found this a few days ago and absolutely loved it. I made the smaller size, and it turned out great. I decided I wanted one even smaller for my keys so I adjusted the pattern to make it even smaller.



Thank you so much for sharing and posting the tutorial!!

And here's my ugly bunny! Smiley I followed the bag charm pattern, because i used different yarn and hook and didn't wanted it to be too big. It's my second try, first one was a winter version, used mohair yarn to be fluffy Grin



This i like more than previous one, looks more like original, what speaks about my progress in crocheting Grin

Thank you very much for pattern!
