Last month I made a post about the Hoooked Eucalyps yarn and how I loved the look and feel of the yarn. I decided to make one of my bunnies with the yarn and I really like the result. For the bunny I have used the bunny pattern and for the eyes I crocheted two white eye patches with embroidered black lines. Below you can find how to crochet these white eye patches.
Abbreviations and symbols:
|increase two stitches, crochet 2 stitches in the next stitch||incr.|
|repeat everything between (...) x times||(...) x|
Pattern eye patches:
The eye patches are made with white yarn and I have used a crochet needle of size 2,5mm for it.
|Rnd. 1:||6sc in magic ring||(=6)|
|Rnd. 2:||(incr.) 6x||(=12)|
|Rnd. 3:||(1sc, incr.) 6x||(=18)|
Break yarn. Embroider now a black line between round 2 and 3. Attach the eye patches next to the nose at the side of the head.
The only thing what I experienced with the yarn is that it is difficult to make pompoms with it. The yarn exists out of multiple threads and is really soft. If I bundle the fibers, they will stay flat and you see clearly the thread with which I bundled them. Thus, I have to design another fluffy tail when I crochet more bunnies with Hoooked Eucalyps yarn. For the example in the pictures I have used a rest piece wool yarn.
