Inflate the white 260 leaving 6/7 fingers un-inflated.

Make two 1.5 finger bubbles, tie the knot around the second twist and
then twist the knot of the balloon over the centre section to make two pinch twists.
This will be the nose section of the rabbit.

The lower mouth section is a 2 finger bubble and pinch
twist this bubble into the two pinch twist nose bubbles..

You then need a small 2 finger bubble followed by a 3 finger fold twist for one of the cheeks..

Make the second 3 finger fold twist for the second cheek followed by a 1 finger
pinch twist to hold the cheeks separate at the back of the head.

You then need a 4 finger bubble for the face and a 1.5 finger bubble pinch twisted
for the top of the head where the ears will attach later.

You then need another 4 finger bubble for the back of the head,
twist this into the cheek bubbles.

Make a 1.5/2 finger bubble for the neck of the rabbit and then two 1.5 finger bubbles which
are pinch twisted for where the arms/front paws of the rabbit will be twisted into later.

If you have one pinch twist here the connection is a little on the loose side.

Inflate the second white 260 leaving approx. 4 fingers un-inflated.

Attach this around the 2 pinch twists, make a 4/5 finger bubble followed by
two 2 finger bubbles and then one more bubble 4/5 fingers in length.

Twist these into the two neck pinch twists.

The body on the rabbit I think looks better smaller so a 3/4 finger bubble is plenty.
Make a small 1.5 finger pinch twist, push the air to the end of the 260 making
a 2 finger bubble at the end of the 260 for the rabbit's tail.

Twist the tail into the pinch twist, split the large loop in half.

The centre twist of the large loop twists into the tail/pinch twist of the rabbit making his two feet.

You can then shape the feet.

Inflate the white 160 about 2/3 thirds of the way and make a 8 finger fold twist.
