amigurumi pattern: Kawaii MEDIUM/SMALL sized bunny

My first pattern I've posted up! ^_^
I write my patterns a bit differently.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
R1 (_)= Row 1 (_)<-number of stitches per row


ch=chain
sc= single crochet/ stitch*
sc around= 1 sc in each hole (to build the plush up straight/tall)

inc=increase
dec= decrease 

*You can change the stitches to 'half double crochet' if you want, thicker stiches to make a bigger plushie.


You can also use 2 strands of different yarn together (and can use different colours to create nice colour combinations!^_^) to make a bigger plush (might have to use a bigger hook). 
A great way to create a different size while following the exact same pattern. This way you don't have to think up a new pattern figuring out how to make it bigger.


The plushie will look bigger or smaller depending on the thickness of the yarn. (Btw, I dont pay attention to my yarn or hook size. I use any size and then just change to a bigger hook if the yarn seems too thick for it)

  2. I'm wondering for the head is it :

    R12- (30) *3sc, dec*
    R13- (24) *2sc, dec*
    R14- (18) *1sc, dec*
    instead of
    R12- (30) *4sc, dec*
    R13- (24) *3sc, dec*
    R14- (18) *2sc, dec*

    1. Nope it's as written :-) I used to get mixed up with that as well and did it wrong and wondered why I had left over stitches, like it didn't fit in perfectly. If its 4sc, inc to go from 30 to 36, its the same back, but change inc to dec. After doing it for a while I kinda understand the math of it^_^

      since this one goes in the 6 x table..
      from 30 to 36:
      *4sc, inc* is the same as *4sc, +2sc* which = 6.
      then 6x6 = 36 stitches in that row

      from 36 to 30:
      *4sc, dec* is the same as *4sc + 1* (because decreasing brings 2 stitches together into 1) so 4sc + 1sc = 5, then 5x6 = 30. so thats how you bring 36 back down to 30
