About the pattern.

This crochet bunny pattern is made using Needles 8 ply acrylic yarn. Again, the texture of tis yarn is just awesome! This time I worked with Hot Blue, Leaf Green, Chocolate Brown and Hot Pink. The body and base is made using a combination of hot blue, hot pink and leaf green. While designing Kavaluku, I kept thinking about the Easter Bunny. I still have a hard time trying to make sense of it but I couldn’t resist making an egg bunny hybrid!
