Technical Details:
This Amigurumi Crochet Bunny is crocheted in the round. Do not join rounds. Mark the beginning of your rounds with a stitch marker or safety pin. I use yarn to mark the rows, choose the best way for yourself.

Finished Size:
Using a 2.5 mm crochet hook: Approx. 20 cm/7.87inc

Tools and materials:
•     Yarn:  Approx. 50 grams of DK or worsted weight yarns. I prefer cotton or bamboo yarns, but acrylic, cotton or wool blend synthetic yarns will also work. (I used Rosarios4 and Bio Boolero in the example)
•     8 or 10 mm safety eyes
•     Polyfill stuffing

Skill level: Advanced Beginner/ Intermediate
This pattern requires knowledge of some basic crochet terms:
Crocheting in the round, forming a magic ring, single crochet stitch, single crochet increase, single crochet invisible decrease, slip stitch, working with back loop, and joining pieces together. 

Process of creating and making a new pattern. 
The ears won't look centered, they'll look a bit lopsided, which is part of the design (based on the specific breed). 
I was working a lot on this design. Creating something simple may not be the easiest task. Simple - cute - made out of 50 grams - head and ears in one piece - huggable - played with - great to grasp and touch - bashful - appealing to all ages - ideal for a gift - displayed proudly - simply precious to hold for a long time - fun to crochet. The size was also important. I wanted to make an easy to hold toy, a bedtime toy. Perfect size for little hands. 
Then explaining it all, taking step-by-step photos, trial-error-imagine-reimagine-improve- undo-remake and a lot of sticky notes all over the place. 

This has been a long journey for me and I hope you enjoy the pattern! You may also create many vests to button and unbutton. 
The pattern is tested by several amigurumi makers.
