Crochet: The White Rabbit from Alice In Wonderland

Thursday, April 21, 2016

Last month, I started crocheting a rabbit. I wanted to make it for Easter. But, I ran out of yarn and didn't get a chance to buy more until after Easter. So, I decided to turn him into the White Rabbit from Alice in Wonderland! I figured it would be fitting since this year is the 150th anniversary of the original publication of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland.

I searched Pinterest and Ravelry for free patterns on how to make a White Rabbit outfit, but I couldn't find any. At first, I was going to make a red sweater and a white vest with a heart on it. But, that was too complicated. So, I ended up using a pattern for a heart applique and then making my own pattern for the ruffled collar and the pocket watch.

The pattern for the rabbit is from Amigurumi To Go. I did the nose a little different and didn't make a tail, though.

For the heart, I used this Crochet Heart Applique pattern from Petals to Picots. It came out a little big and if I were to make this again, I'd probably make a smaller heart.

This is my first time writing down a pattern, so let me know if you have any questions or are having any issues with it!
