I'm back with a new planter! This time it's a sweet lil bunny. I actually made this for a spring collection feature on WeCrochet, but for whatever reason, they ended up not really going through with it. They were supposed to do a big promotion and everything and...nothing? Oh well haha. Either way, I've now published it everywhere!
To make this cutie, you hold 2 strands of worsted yarn together, and use a waistcoat stitch. Now, my goal with this one was to have a VERY round and sturdy 3D pot, so I used a pretty small hook to achieve this. And it worked perfectly! However, it's really rough on your hands/wrist.
Normally with the waistcoat stitch you use a larger hook than normal, because the fabric it creates is dense as heck, but I wanted a solid structure, so I went against the grain and used a little 5.5mm hook!
But because of this, yeah, it's rough. You gotta do this project in small bits, over the course of a few days. I imagine somebody could legitimately damage themselves trying to crank this out.
It's silly that such a simple looking pattern is so dangerous lol, but I'm 100% serious, you gotta take your time with it.
