BUNNY BABY SNUGGLY
BUNNY BABY SNUGGLY
I was gifted this super chunky really soft Bernat yarn. I thought I’d make a smallish cocoon – but I am not sure why or how I was pretty unhappy with the pattern. It was just all lumpy and I was not able to figure it out.. I guess that was just one of “those days”. It then got stuck into a bag and went into the “Oh, don’t bother to look here” corners of my cupboard.
Thanks to the Ravellenics games (haven’t heard of it? Head on over to Ravelry and read all about The Ravellenic Rio Games 2016) …
so thanks to these games, I went through my stuff and pulled this one out as one of the challenges in these Games is either finishing up a WIP (Work In Progress) OR Frogging it and creating something new .. so this one is getting a once-over ;)
Materials used : Today I’ve used the spectacular Bernat Softee Chunky acrylic yarn, with a 5.5 mm crochet hook
Skill level : Intermediate.
Stitches used :
fsc : Foundation Single Crochet : To refresh your skill on the fsc, please view this superb video by Tamara Kelly at the link http://www.mooglyblog.com/foundation-single-crochet-fsc/
fdc : Foundation Double Crochet : This is a unique way of starting a project directly with a row of double crochet stitches. This makes your whole project neat and even.. in a way that you need to do once, to agree! If you are familiar with fsc, you’ll wonder why you never used this start before !
Do visit this lovely link http://www.mooglyblog.com/foundation-double-crochet-fdc/
Chainless dc start : Instead of the usual start with ch 2 or ch 3,I’d like to introduce a lovely way of starting a double crochet row. Do take a look at this self explanatory super video
In case you are unhappy with this start, or do not like it, do continue with the usual ch-2 or ch-3 start. However, all instructions will be given assuming that you are using this chainless dc start.

Thanks for joining me on my creation here.. so here is what I started with .. the baby cocoon gone bad.. and then the cute snuggly that came out of it.

I love art and craft - and am grateful for this hobby that keeps me busy and out of 'mischief'.
We (as a family) are also staunch protectors of stray animals and will continue to do our bit to make this a safe world for them.
We strongly believe in R-R-R and several of my projects will show this.
