OK The photos are a bit hard to see, but I am happy with the bunny. He feels like a tiny bath mat. He is my third completed project in crochet. The yarn is Sensations Oceania variegated yarn with twisted accents (color Oceania primary Multi #7) and it is 100% nylon. Of course these photos do not portray the colors accurately, but it is close. He is purple, lavendar, navy, green, yellow and darkish pink. His face is pretty well lost in the fuzz but I am ok with that. I considered not embroidering a face at all. I could have gone either way really. I again did this without a pattern. I started with the head and decreased to a neck, then back out for the body. The ears started in the round but were flattened out by the second or third row from the base. The second ear turned into a leg LOL since I sort of lost control of the size. But at least time I did not end up with a little pile of mismatched limbs that have no home like with his brother the bear.

I took some pics without the flash since the flash was washing him out too much to see the shape. His limbs are not poseable, but his ear holds a bend nicely.

This yarn is so squishy and fun to hold. I may buy more and try something a little larger.

That yarn looks very challenging to use.  You made a very cuddly bunny!
