This is my first attempt at amigurumi. It's a fun little Easter bunny for my cousin's 3 year-old girl. She is the only little girl in the family, so she gets all my girly crafts. Like this one.

I think it turned out alright. I did make one mistake though; I used yarn from hell. I used that fuzzy, cobwebby acrylic stuff. If you feel the urge to use fuzzy yarn for amigurumi, just don't. My hands were killing me from trying to force the crochet hook through all those little fibers.

I used this pattern. It was OK, but I did need to to add many more rounds to the legs to get the "string bean" look shown in the picture.
