One Skein Bunny is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Turned out pretty cute! All of the instructions are there and pretty easy to follow. There isn't a hook size listed and I used a G, but I'm thinking an F hook may have worked better. I hope our GGD will like it for Easter!! Thanks for the pattern!
