Teensy Amigurumi Bunny

I bought some baby yarn to finish out a bunny hat I was making for [personal profile] krayola 's daughter, and enjoyed the feel of it so much that I figured I should make something small. Very small. The bunny is about the size of my thumb. So I don't forget, here's the pattern I made up as I went:

Teensy Bunny (Amigurumi)

Row 0: Magic ring (6 total)
Row 1: 2sc in each ch (12 total)
Row 2: {1sc, 2sc in one ch} * 6 (18)
Row 3-6: sc around (18)
Row 6: {1sc, decr} * 6 (12) // this makes the neck

Stuff the body. I left a puff of stuffing sticking out as a tail.

Row 7: {2sc in one ch, 1sc} * 6 (18) // starting the head. I think I did some extra 2sc by accident
Row 8: sc around (18)

Stuff the head.

Rest: decr around until closed

Ears (make two, unless your bunny is actually a unicorn): ch 6, then carefully run the yarn back through the chains to add volume and make it so you have two threads on one side so you can fasten.

Fasten the ears to the head and embroider eyes, nose if you want.

Happy spring!

Wow it really is just like postscript. 3D crochet printer anyone?

I looked it up (of course). There are automatic crochet machines on order but they are mainly for making linear strips like laces and things. There's one I saw that can do gloves, but apparently only gloves. No arbitrary shape machines, and they don't seem to be, um, USB printer type things the way a lot of 3D printers are now.

I guess it must be too much of a niche market, because honestly, it's probably way less of a technical challenge to make one of these than it is to make those solid 3D printers. I mean, the materials issue is already solved.
