Step 1: Make the Body
To start, make a magic ring and crochet 6 single crochet stitches into the ring. Pull the ring closed and slip stitch into the first stitch to join. Continue to single crochet in rounds until the body measures 2 inches in height. Stuff the body with fiberfill stuffing.

Step 3: Join the Head and Body
To join the head and body, first position the head on top of the body. Using your yarn needle, sew the head to the body using a whip stitch.
Step 4: Make the Ears
To make the ears, chain 2 and single crochet 2 stitches into the second chain from the hook. Turn your work and single crochet 2 stitches in the next 2 stitches. Chain 1 and turn your work. Repeat the process until the ear measures 2 inches in length. Fasten off and weave in the ends. Repeat to make a second ear.
Step 5: Attach the Ears
Using your yarn needle, sew the ears onto the top of the head. Position the ears so they are angled slightly forward.
Step 6: Make the Arms and Legs
To make the arms and legs, crochet 4 single crochet stitches into a magic ring. Continue to single crochet in rounds until the arm or leg measures 1.5 inches in length. Fasten off and weave in the ends. Repeat to make a total of 4 arms and legs.
Step 7: Attach the Arms and Legs
Using your yarn needle, sew the arms and legs onto the body of the rabbit. Position them so that they are evenly spaced around the body.
