Skill level: beginner / easy

Abbreviations:
ch = chain
sc = single crochet
st = stitch
inc = increase
dec = decrease
(..) = repeat the space in brackets the given number of times
[..] = total number of stitches

The bunny is crocheted from the bottom up starting from the legs.

Work in continuous rounds using a yarn marker to make counting easier. Stuff as you go.

Don’t fasten off, cut the yarn leaving a small tail. Make the second leg in the same way, don’t fasten off. Crochet 7 ch to join the second leg with the first one. To do this, draw the open loop of the first leg through the last loop of the chain and continue crocheting the body along the whole workpiece:
Rnd 12: sc in all 14 st of the first leg, sc in next 7 ch, sc in next 14 st of the second leg, sc in next 7 ch (opposite side). You should get 42 stitches in total.
