Marguerite Rose and her Rabbits

Marguerite Rose loves her rabbits!  She is a Lalylala mod based on Rita the Rabbit and my own Petite Paul.  I found her lovely rose embroidery on Pinterest, and the rabbit pattern on Ravelry:

Hops the Bunny Rabbit

Marguerite Rose is crocheted with Knit Picks Palette and Stroll fingering weight yarn and a size 1 steel hook.  Her rose motif is cross-stitch embroidered using the same yarns.  Her rabbits are also crocheted, holding one strand of Palette and one strand of Pirouette lace weight mohair together, with a size C crochet hook.

  1. What a cute group!

    Love the bunnies in particular. I've been making some attempts at crochet, so I'm going to add that Ravelry link to my project list.

  7. I must say, I have a lot of respect that your cross stitches came out so perfectly. I tried it on a little one I am currently working on and gave up. If she were made using the afghan simple stitch, no problem. What happens is the boxes don't all line up due to the increases and decreases. If you are using a pattern, it doesn't line up. What's Up? Will be appliqué ing my girl and embroidering I think.

    I am bowing to you, my hero.🙋

    1. Hi Joyce, I will admit to cheating :-) For the Lalylala dolls, I 'moved' the decrease stitches toward the back of the body, so that I would have at least 20 stitches across the front of the doll with no decreases, allowing the crochet stitches to line up evenly on top of each other.

      This gives me a minimum of a 20 x 20 area on the front of the doll to cross stitch. Not a very large area, and some of the patterns exceed this a bit, but it worked out pretty well.

      Otherwise, I think is would be very frustrating to try to cross stitch.

      Warmly,

      Beth
