The Tiniest and Cutest!

This bunny sits in the palm of your hand, measuring only 3.5 inches when made with sport weight yarn. I love how adorable and cute she is and would love to make a whole rainbow of them in different pastel colors. In my personal opinion, I think that the smaller an amigurumi is, the cuter, which is why you see so many minuscule creations on this blog! So it’s no surprise that even though I have so many other amigurumi bunny patterns, I still wanted to make a new pattern because of how cute and small she is.

Best Friends!

I based this pattern off of the one that I published a little while ago for Cinnamon the Mini Bear, so that they two would be the exact same size and shape. I really love the result, and I think that the two match perfectly! Never mind the fact that bears and bunnies are far from the same size, but in my cute and cuddly world, everyone gets along πŸ™‚
