Square Knit (or Crochet) Bunny

This cute little project was not intended to be made with the crazy thick yarn I used, but since I had it I wanted to give it a try:@) I couldn't tell you what I've knit in the past but found a set of #10 knitting needles in my craft closet(?) so I decided to try this Square Knit Bunny.
The idea is, you can make a bunny from any size knitted/crocheted square. I've seen it a few 
different times on-line but fell in love with the really beautiful one HERE.

Of course mine is silly and chunky and while I won't be making any more for this Easter, 
I'd like to pick up some "hairy" thin yarn specifically for making another smaller one next year.

I used this $1 white yarn from AC Moore, it took about 1 1/2 skeins.
You can click the link HERE for a tutorial and I encourage you to see Anette's pretty bunny.

Notes:
  • I used 34 stitches, #10 needles and my square was about 11". 
  • My completed bunny is about 5.5" tall. Since my bunny was top heavy (this yarn was crazy) I made it stand up tall instead of laying down as intended.
  • I also added some dried beans to the bottom to help it stand up.
  • Does he need eyes? Googly eyes wouldn't look good on this, any ideas?
Have a happy day:@)
