Handmade crochet

Two Moon Gazing Hares

I loved this design when I found it on Pinterest:

It’s called kissing hares, but it reminded me of a moon gazing hare.  Perfect for this time of year as it represents rebirth, resurrection and fertility.

I really wanted to try it out so I tried different types of stitches.  I decided on corner to corner crochet (c2c).  For anyone that’s unsure about this pattern, I found this great tutorial:

I kept starting it then ripping it all out because it wasn’t turning out how I wanted it.  What can I say I’m a perfectionist!

Finally, I conquered it by using a No.4 hook and DK yarn.  I also changed the pattern slightly. At the chain 6 and chain 3 points of the pattern I chained 5 and 2 instead.  This minimised the gaps between the tiles.

Overall, I really enjoyed this type of crochet…… once I got the hang of it!

My finished piece:

If I decide to make another one I would make the hares a bit fatter and round their back ends a bit more lol.  Other than that I love it and will make it into a tote bag.

I now have another million different ideas running around my head on what to do next in this stitch!

See you soon
