    Rachel,

    I have a question about this egg pattern. Is there a way that you could make this a bigger egg? I know that you would probably increase the stitching but I wouldn’t have the faintest idea on how to do it. I appreciate the help. thanks!!!!!

    • Rachel says:

      I don’t think there is an easy solution for making it bigger, you would have to continue increasing after round 4, until it is as wide as you want it. Then just sc in each sc around until the middle of the egg is as long as you want it. Then decrease the bottom. It’s more like a guess and check kind of thing.

    hey love the pattern, i had trouble with the ears they were kinda small and my bunny looked like a mouse it is cute just the same ,just had to add a couple rows for the ears ,thanks for the patterns

  7. Abi says:

    I love it!! Now don’t take this offensively, but the way the ears were placed they reminded me of Yoda! I was thinking. I could make it with some green and brown yarn, remove the tail, and it would be perfect! Sooooooooooooo cute!
