WOOL AND THE GANG sent me some of their Shiny Happy Cotton Yarn to try their Ruby Rabbit Toy kit just in time for the Easter holidays. I’ve never crocheted before, so this was a first for me! I love new challenges and quick DIYs, so this was a perfect after-work project. (All opinions are my own. You can enter the giveaway at the end of the post.)

It took me two evenings in total and I was surprised how successful my first dabble at crocheting was! I made the white bunny first. If you look closely, you can see it’s a bit larger than the mint green one and somewhat wonky – but all in all, I’m really pleased with how it turned out.

I chose the spearmint green Shiny Happy Cotton, as I love pastel colours in my home. The wool is lovely and soft to touch, and has a silky shine to it. It’s perfect for those amigurumi-type projects, as it’s absolutely lint-free. I always wanted to try amigurumi crochet toys, but thought it was super difficult. After finishing two perfectly cute bunnies with no prior experience whatsoever, I might actually attempt this some time soon!

The kit is rated ‘intermediate level’. The instructions include illustrated basic crochet techniques, which was really helpful. The only thing I had to look up was the magic loop technique. I do have quite a bit of experience with knitting, so learning to crochet wasn’t too difficult. But in my opinion, even an absolute knitting and crocheting beginner could tackle this.

The only thing I struggled with at first was tension, which is why my bunnies are different sizes.

The kit includes one ball of Shiny Happy Cotton (colour of choice), the ruby rabbit pattern, a yarn sewing needle and a WATG label. Optionally, you can order the required 4.5mm crochet hook with it and a different colour yarn for the eyes. I used less than one ball of yarn for each rabbit, and had more than enough left to use for the eyes and nose. So if you order two balls, you get two rabbits out in the end. You’ll need some toy stuffing or yarn/fabric scraps to stuff the rabbit. I used stuffing from an old pillow.

    1. Such cute bunnies! This would be a fabulous prezzie for a friend who’s pregnant. I’d go for the ultra violet colour (with a tough choice between that and the eagle grey!).

  1. Ahhh what a gorgeous giveaway!!

    And may I say, for your first venture into crochet… How fab are these?!!! They turned out awesome! I love that you’ve made a little family of them, all in different colours! So cute : )

    I love the wool from Wool and the Gang and think they do such a stunning colour range (how on Earth do we choose just one!!), but I think if pushed I’d perhaps go with the Eagle Grey! Or Nude pink… Or Land Of Oz!… oooeps! ; )

    Wishing you a lovely Easter!!


  2. Your bunnies are fab! The tension is always an aspect when you first knitt or crochet, I love crochting and find it more flexible designeise than knitting.
    Powder blue yarn is really appealing to me.
    Yay to cute beautiful bunnies!

  3. So cute for Easter! I too am a total crochet novice….but we all got to start somewhere haha Love the colours but pink lemonade for me please 🙂

  4. Love these, they are so cute! Would love to win and I think the yelllow mellow colour would look fab as a bunny 🙂

  5. These bunnies are just too cute! I think they look adorable in slightly different sizes too! If I had the kit I think I’d have to choose nude pink – such a pretty pastel colour and gorgeous for spring! X

  6. I love bunnies and these are super cute. I think they’d be a nice little project to help me get started with crocheting as I’d love to learn. Colour wise, I’d go for Land of Oz.
