Tips & Notes

  • Rounds are worked in continuous spirals; do not join. Do not turn work at the end of each round.
  • Crochet into both front and back of each stitch.
  • Time saving finishing tip—when changing yarn colors crochet around the yarn ends, this way you won’t have to weave the ends into the form when finishing the rabbit.
