I’m always looking forward to easter. The spring is coming up, and the days are getting longer and warmer. To celebrate easter and spring, I made this cute Easter Bunny, it stands in the hallway to welcome my easter guests.

It’s a Norwegian tradition to decorate the house with cute yellow easter chickens, and I still do, although I have never decorated with a bunny before. Luckily, I think this little guy became incredibly cute.

I had some trouble developing the pattern for a ball, but when I finally figured it out, it turned out to be quite easy.

To keep it simple I didn’t make tail nor feet. I made the ears like cylinders, and the arms are one long tube holding the basket with the eggs.
