Long ears is the first thing associated with rabbits, but no other breed comes anywhere near the English lop: the Guinness record holder had a 79 cm/over 31” span from ear tip to ear tip. Beside the ear size, the pattern contains realistic body shaping: this is a ‘semi-arched’ breed with straight shoulders and a rise only over the back and loins, rather than an evenly curved body.

You could use any yarn weight for these bunnies as long as you choose a fitting hook, it will only influence the finished size. My example rabbits were made with DK yarn and 3mm hook, they are about 8” long and have 13” ear span.

The pattern is 7 pages long with many photographs illustrating the process. It is written in English with US crochet terms. Stitches and techniques used:
starting with magic ring, chain, slip stitch, single crochet, single crochet increase, invisible decrease, work in front loop only

The realistic shaping needs a little attention, so I would classify this as an intermediate level amigurumi.
