These came to be as I was sitting in my favorite spot, my front porch swing. I love sitting there swinging, crocheting and watching my children play in the yard. It was springtime and the colorful flowers were just starting to make their first appearance of the year.
I was playing around with some bulky yarn and a big hook and was thinking of quick projects…my favorite!! With 6 kids, by the time I get to grab a hook and sit down I’ll be getting up again. So quick easy projects are the best! The easiest way to accomplish that is with super bulky yarn and a big hook.
It was April after all so I had picked up some Cadbury Eggs for the kids, while they were hiding in the cabinet I thought of a cute way to present them to the candy monsters.
So grab a big hook…I used my blue plastic N hook and some super bulky yarn in bright fun colors…I used Bernat Blanket Yarn in Teal.
Follow along and in no time you’ll have your very own Bun-Bun!!
Chain 6, DC in 3rd chain from hook & next 2 chains(3 DC)

Repeat * for 2 more rows.

Slip stitch 2 times, you are now in the middle.
