    Notes:
    •Bunny is worked in continuous rounds; do not join and do not turn at the ends of rounds. Place a stitch marker to indicate the beginning of rounds and move marker as each round is worked.
    •Stuff body, head, arms, and legs as work progresses. Do not stuff ears or tail.
    •When fastening off, always leave a 12-18” long tail for sewing.
    •If desired, weight the bottom with a small nylon bag of beads. Place the bag at the bottom of the body before beginning to stuff with Poly-fil.
