The Rosalee Rabbit crochet pattern contains instructions to make an 11” bunny from DK or sport-weight yarn using a C (2.75mm) crochet hook. Rosalee was designed to be safe for children. Her head, body, and arms are crocheted in one piece, and her legs are sewn on. Rosalee’s eyes, nose and mouth are embroidered. She is 11” (28cm) tall when made from the materials listed.

Instructions are provided for the rabbit with attached dress, shoes, hat, and bloomers, a separate little capelet, and a basket full of carrots and turnips. The booklets contain 20 pages of instructions, including color photographs.

The Rosalee Rabbit pattern is recommended for the intermediate crocheter. Very basic sewing and embroidery skills are used to complete the doll.
