Free Pattern Friday: Cactus Bunny Amigurumi

bunnyAll

A 4″ tall amigurumi of a cactus bunny…topiary…plant thing.

In my quest of scouring the internet for cute things to crochet I found a picture of this thing. So I made it. Woo.

With this I was playing around with working in the posts, so you might need to google working in the back posts with single crochet if you’re not familiar with it. I like the effect it gives and I’ve used it in a revamp of my Cookie Mouse amigurumi that may or may not be posted soon.

Also I’ve added a page for the master key so check that out up top if you forget what something means (underlines perhaps?).
