CUTIES - Suzy the hare FREE PATTERN


Hello, recently I finished next creature of THE CUTIES. I present you Suzy the hare! :-) In the post you find FREE PATTERN. The toy size is 10 cm tall (if you use materials stated in the pattern), so you may use it as keychain for your bag or hang it in your car. Subscribe my blog and channel on YouTube :-)

If you haven't watched my video presentation about Boris, Sophia and Lucian, I recommend you to watch it on YouTube:

Materials:

  • YarnArt Jeans - following colors:
- light grey no 49 (head, body, ears, tail, paws)
- beige no 05 (muzzle, tummy, outer part of the eyes)
- light pink no 18 (inner part of the ears)
- blue no 15 (eyes)
- white
- black

I used YarnArt Jeans because I was working on the pattern and I needed visible stitches. But you can of course use fluffy yarn of similar gauge to make your Suzy really soft toy.
  • Crochet hook 2.5 mm

In my pattern, in even-numbered rounds, I divided scs to obtain almost perfect round (not hexagonal shape): e.g. Rnd 4: (1 sc, inc, 1 sc) x 6 [24]. You can of course crochet traditional way: Rnd 4: (2 sc, inc) x 6 [24].

Rnd 4: 18 sc [18]
Fasten off, leaving a tail for sewing.

Stuff while sewing to the head.

Look at the photo below to see how I placed all beige (tummy, outer part of the eye and muzzle). Firstly I pinned the top point of tummy - marked blue dot in the centre (magic circle).
I placed eyes and muzzle. I marked the muzzle (red dotted ellipse).
Muzzle touches black eyes corners (two red dots). Space between the dots = 4 st.

 Blue dot - top part of tummy (placed in magic circle)

Red dots (black eye corners) and ellipse (muzzle)

I also brushed up the tummy and muzzle with Velcro.
Finally I embroidered the nose, mouth (with black floss) and tongue (with pink floss).

Crochet hook 2 mm.
We start from pupil (black yarn) and then we change color to crochet iris.

Fasten off (I do invisible finish), weave in yarn ends.

I work the edging using black thin thread and crochet hook 1 mm (if you want to make black frame for eyes, as in the original cutie creature). I work 2 sc in each stitch.
Finally I embroider white reflections in the centre of each eye.


Firstly I sewed the eyes to the beige part and then pinned the beige part to the head regarding the muzzle placement.

Crochet the edging


Finally sew inner part to the grey part. Be careful not to sew through both surface of the grey ear, but only through the first one (the seam should be inside the ear).

Flat the piece in half. Close the opening by working 6 sc hooking through the stitches of opposite sides. Fasten off, leaving a tail for sewing.


In the picture below you see white lines which indicate the place for sewing paws.
Ignore the red line (it was a tail of the beaver because photo of the beaver is an example).
