Worked in the round on circular needle.
Cast on 80 sts on circular needle size 4 mm / US 6 with off white. K 2 rounds. Insert 2 markers in the piece; one in the 1st st and one in the 41st st (= in each side). Then work diagram M.1 - see explanation above - 2 times in width. When M.1 has been worked 1 time vertically, bind off with off white. Use some left-over light pink to sew a nose for each bunny. Use some left-over light brown Safran to sew whiskers for each bunny.

Work on hook size 4 mm / G/6 and off white. Fold the piece double - see folding edge in diagram. Start at the top in the left corner and crochet around the edge of the pot holder, through both layers as follows:
ROUND 1: Work 1 sc in the corner, * skip 1 cm / 3/8'', 1 sc *, repeat from *-* around the entire pot holder, finish with ch 14 for loop and 1 sl st in 1st sc from beg of round.
