Description: It’s Valeria, not Valarie, and she is a Dutch Bunny, not some sort of weird hamster. Valeria is small in size, but she makes sure that she squeaks loud enough to be heard. (And no, she isn’t a rat, either). Valeria considers Dutch Bunnies to be the Siamese Cat of bunnies with their markings (or, rather, the Siamese Cat is the Dutch Bunny of cats). She is very proud of her points, although she secretly wishes that she was a Blue Point Dutch Bunny like her cousins. She dreams one day of her fur changing color, but until that day, she is pouring her energy in rallying the other bunnies to bring a crushing defeat to the turtles in the Tortoise vs. Hare competition.

Gauge is not a critical factor for this project. If desired, it can be made with any size hook and with any weight of yarn. Adjust hook size/yarn size to obtain desired fabric. I am a very tight crocheter and you may find that you need to go down a hook size or two to eliminate unsightly holes in your toy. You may also require more yarn than I use.
