I love making cork ornaments. I’ve been trying to expand and come up with new ideas. I promise, I did not drink all these bottles of Champagne by myself.
4-H is upon us here in Ohio. The kids take rabbits. We will be getting their 4-H rabbits soon. In honor of the rabbits, here are some super cute rabbit Cork Ornaments.
Worsted Weight Yarn
I love this yarn – Pink
I love this yarn – White
1 inch pompom maker or a fork
Gauge: is not important for this project
SC – Single Crochet
FO – Fasten Off
SL ST – Slip Stitch
INC – Make two Single Crochet in Same Stitch
DEC – Single Crochet two stitches together
BLOs – Back Loops Only
FLOs – Front loops only
Note: Hats are worked in the round. Use a stitch marker or a scrap piece of yarn to mark the beginning of each row. Then you don’t have to count every row. Do not join unless instructed to.
Parentheses indicate a repeat. Repeat the stitches in the parentheses for the number of times indicated.
The bracketed number  is the number of stitches at the end of each row.
I spread my increases out so there isn’t a seam on the finished piece. If you do not like this method, you can do regular increases.
If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at email@example.com.
Wrap a 1” pompom maker with white yarn to make a full pompom. Glue to the back of cork.

Slip Stitch in 2nd Chain from hook, SL, 4 SC, 3 HDC in last stitch, working in the unused stitches from the first stitches, 4 SC, 2 SL. Fasten off. Leave a long tail for sewing. Attach to hat.
Attach screw eye to top of cork.
Cut 6 inch section of ribbon. Thread ribbon through the screw eye and tie to hold it in place. Place the hat over the cork, pulling the ribbon through the hat. Here you can glue the hat in place to keep it from slipping.
Using the Pink Sharpie draw a small triangle for the nose.
Using the Black Sharpie draw two circles for eyes and a small mouth.
You can make them in any color.
