Oh! I don't know which is more cute! Our model or the bunny! I just found this in the nick of time! Easter is right around the corner and I can see several of these sitting atop wee ones baskets this year. How special and precious! This will remain after all the candy is gone too! I'm thankful that it's labeled "easy" and they even have an ear assembly diagram.

It would be helpful to know how much yarn is needed (approximately, in yards) to complete this project.

Confused with "adjustable ring" and "drop loop." These are not easy directions. Maybe intermediate?

Do you add 30 dc around each ear before sewing together? The instructions are not complete.

I did 30 sc around each ear, to join the inside (pink) with the ear back (tan).
