Easter Bunny Coffee Kozie

Coffee is an absolute morning staple, for me.  It only stands to reason to have a Kozie for every season and Holiday.
This first Easter Kozie uses my original Kozie pattern.  I just added a little to it to make the bunny.
Hope you love it.  :)

Flip your work over to work around the bottom of the Kozie.

Join yarn with a sl st to the chain row.
Ch 1, rsc in each chain around.  Sl st to first rsc.  (28 rsc)
Fasten off and weave in ends.

Using color for the inside of the ear (pink in my case)
 G hook
Ch 10
1 sc in 2nd ch from hook and next 3 ch's, 1 hdc in next 3 ch's, 1 dc in next ch, 4 dc in last ch.
Working on the opposite side (bottom side of previous stitches) 2 dc in next st, 1 hdc in next 3 st's, 1 sc in next 3 st's, join with first sc.
Fasten off
Join bunny color (white in my case) to last st
Ch 1 hdc in first 8 st’s, 2 hdc in next 5 st’s (the dc‘s from last round), 1 hdc in remaining st’s. 
Fasten off leaving a long tail for sewing.
Weave in ends EXCEPT for tail for sewing

Sew ears to the top of the Kozie, using the long tails.

Use the yarn needle to make the nose, mouth, and eyes.
Small buttons would also be really cute for the eyes.  I think I will try them, next time.
