Fuzzy Yarn Tips

It seems to be a commonly held belief that it’s difficult/impossible to crochet with fuzzy/eyelash/fun fur yarn. As you may have noticed, I’ve been working with fuzzy yarns a lot, so I thought I should share some advice on how to crochet fuzzy amigurumi toys.

    I have bought your pattern tutorials for the Easter bunny ( forget the real name you used ) included the chick as a bonus.

    I have made them and turn out that the bunny become very thin and small Not as your picture I used Brazilian fuzzy/eyelash yarn.

    Not satisfied, I made one again from another type of yarn and then brush it.
    The result was not as what I expected.

    If you can tell, what to do. Thanks for the attention.
