A Crocheted Hare wearing knitted clothes

Making a thread crochet toys is a very enjoyable and fun hobby. The time before Christmas was for knitted elves, and the weeks before Easter it is great time for making Easter toys.

I have some ideas for Easter toys already but I want to show one of my sister's crocheted Easter toys, made on last April. It is an Easter hare.

This cute lil long legged guy is about 15,7 inches (40 cm) hight. The pattern comes from a Polish magazine for women. But in the project my sister made some modifications - hare's legs are long, hands are with thumbs, all clothes are knitted.

Pattern: Wloczkowe zajaczki (Przyjaciolka)
Needles: DPNS 3 mm
Yarn: 20 dag of 100 % acrylic DK in light brown, blue denim, yellow and red,
To fill: poly granules

Monkey Love ;)

For a good friend, who helped me out of the kindness of his heart last year. He also happens to have a thing for sock monkeys - of the sewn Red Heel persuasion. Little does he know this li'l feller's soon to be sitting on his doorstep ;) Hopefully he'll play nice with all the other ones.
