{ Bruna, the bunny... }

Materials
- 4 mm crochet hook (US G)
- 100 % cotton yarn for a 4 mm hook
- Fluffy yarn, like chenille (I used two of Katia Bambi)
- A pair of 12 mm safety eyes or yarn to embroider them
- Tapestry needle
- Polyfiber fill  

Abbreviations (US Terms)
st = stitch
ch = chain
sc = single crochet

You will need: 
One color for her skin (Chenille) and one color for her t-shirt and ribbon (100% cotton). 
Oh! And a bit of pink to embroider the cheeks. 

Finished size: 
From head to toe, Bruna measures 28 cm approximately.
Of course, should you choose a different hook and yarn, final measures will vary.

Ready? Let's begin...

NOTE: I found it hard to start with a magic ring using the fluffy chenille yarn. So I've always started with 2 chains...

Leg 1 
{Start with the skin color…}
1. Make 2 chain stitches. Crochet 6 sc in the second chain from hook.
2. Crochet *2 sc in each st*, repeat * (12)
