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
