365.256: cup of crochet

I started this bear last night. finished the head, this morning. I only had 4 hours of sleep and didn’t even have any coffee! i’m on a roooooollll!

Anyway, this is another ‘Bedfellow’ from the pattern by by Camilla Engman, in The Happy Hooker.

I actually didn’t use the pattern for the first half of the head. Instead, my stitch number went like this:
3, 6, 12, 24, 30, 30, 36, 42, 48, 54, 60, 66, then i switched yarns and did one even row, then i switched hooks and started the decrease part of the pattern (for the bunny head). I wanted it to have a flatter face and for the contrasting yarn (brown) to show up more from the front.

p.s. I got the cup from the thrift store for 66 cents! it’s from the florist transworld delivery association, 1979.

p.p.s. I also got the yarn from the thrift store. Alafoss Lopi in a variegated brown. It was $1.50. score!
