Stuff slightly (then we will put more stuffing).

To make the legs, divide the body with markers in this way: 10 stitches for each leg with 5 stitches in between (it is important that the 5 stitches that are in the middle are centered and so, if it is necessary, add or undo stitches):

Leg 1:

Join the 10 stitches with a sl st and continue crocheting:

Rnd 1-8: 10sc (8 rounds)

Rnd 9: (4 inv dec, 1 sc, 1sl st) [6]

Close*

(*fasten off, leaving a long tail. Using a tapestry needle, pull the yarn tail through the front loops and pull it tight to close. Weave in the yarn end).

—Stuff the leg #1 and the rest of the body through the hole in leg #2—

Leg 2:

Do the same as with the previous leg (I recommend leaving a long thread at the beginning to sew the gap between the legs at the end).

-Before starting round 9 finish stuffing what is missing. Finish and close.

-Check if there is the right amount of stuffing, sew the gap between the legs and fasten off.

EARS (X2):

Make with the same color of the body

Rnd 1: 6sc in a mr [6]

Rnd 2: 6 inc [12]

Rnd 3-5: 12sc (3 rounds)

Rnd 6: (1sc, 1inc) x6 [18]

Rnd 7-8: 18sc (2 rounds)

Rnd 9: (2sc, 1inc) x6 [24]

Rnd 10: 24sc

Rnd 11: (1inv dec, 10sc) x2 [22]

Rnd 12: 22sc

Rnd 24: (1inv dec, 4sc) x2 [10]

Rnd 25: (1inv dec, 3sc) x2 [8]

Rnd 26: 7sc, 1sl st [8]

Fasten off leaving a long thread to sew it onto the body.

ARMS (X2):

Rnd 2: 6 inc [12]

Rnd 3-4: 12sc (2 rounds)

Rnd 5: (1inv dec, 4sc) x2 [10]

Rnd 6-15: 10sc (10 rounds)

Rnd 16: 9sc, 1sl st [10]

Fasten off leaving a long thread to sew it onto the body.

*The arms don´t need to be stuffed.

PANTS:

Make with another color of yarn (color B)

Make 40 ch and join with sl st in to first ch (to form a ring) and continue crocheting:

Rnd 1-4: 40sc (3 rounds)

Rnd 5: 2sc, (5sc, 1 inc) x6, 2 sc [46]

Rnd 6: 46sc

Rnd 7: 2sc, (5sc, 1 inv dec) x6, 2 sc [40]

Rnd 8: 2sc, (4sc, 1 inv dec) x6, 2 sc [34]

Rnd 9: 34sc

Separate with markers in this way (in the same way that we did before with the legs): 12 stitches for each leg with 5 stitches in between.

Leg 1:

Join the 12 stitches with a sl st and continue crocheting:

Rnd 1-2: 12sc (2 rounds)

Rnd 3: 11sc, 1 sl st [12]

Fasten off by hiding the excess thread.

Leg 2:

Do the same as with the previous leg (I recommend leaving a long thread at the beginning to sew the gap between the legs at the end).

Sew the gap between the legs, Fasten off and hide the excess threads.

CHEEKS (X2):

Make with thinner yarn and 2,5 mm crochet hook (color C)

Rnd 1: 6sc in a mr [6]

Rnd 2: 6 inc [12]

Rnd 3: (1sc, 1inc) x6, 1sl st [18]

Fasten off leaving a long thread to sew it onto the body.

* If you do with 3 mm crochet (and a yarn according) may be too big for the face of the rabbit, if you see that it is so, do only rounds 1 and 2 ending with a sl st.

SCARF:

1- Make 69 ch

Turn and continue crocheting starting in the second stitch.

2- 1sl st, 1sc, 1hdc, 62dc, 1hdc, 1sc, 1sl st

Top off by hiding the excess thread.

ASSEMBLY:

1-Put the pants on to the rabbit taking care that the legs are well placed (make some stitches if you want to fix them).

2-Place the cheeks, under the eyes,  according to what looks good for you (using pins) and sew.

3-Place the arms on each side of the body, just under the head, and sew.

4-Place the ears, with the help of pins, in the head according to what looks good for you (I put the base of the ears on round 6 approximately) and sew.

*You can make a few stitches hidden under the ears, so that the ears are more attached to the head (in the back of the head), as seen in the images.

5- Tie the scarf around the neck.

Congratulations! You´re done!
