 Gauge: 

  • Bunny: 4 sts x 5.5 rows = 2”
  • Carrot: 10 sts x 13 rows = 2”

Notes:

  • Gauge is not vital to the project as long as the same tension is maintained throughout the project and there are no holes that stuffing can be seen through however, it may affect the amount of yarn needed for the project.
  • A 5.5mm crochet hook is recommended for the Fable Fur portions of the project but if you find you are unable to feel your stitches, you can adjust your hook size until you can more easily feel your stitches to know where to place your stitches. This may, however, affect your gauge and therefore, the amount of yarn needed. 
  • When making a Magic Circle with faux fur yarn, do not crochet over the tail. Watch my video of tips and tricks for working with faux fur yarns HERE.
  • This pattern is worked in continuous rounds (unless stated otherwise). Do not join at the end of the round, unless indicated.  A stitch marker is used to keep track of the beginning of the round.
  • All pieces made in the Fable Fur are worked and sewn onto the project with the wrong side facing out to show the better-looking side of the fur.
