Little bunny free crochet pattern

Little bunny free crochet pattern

Today’s post is a new free pattern, yay!

I made this little bunny probably a year ago. I think I had intended to make an online class on craftsy or something, but fell out of love with the idea. Instead I’ll just let you guys have it!

Since I had originally planned to video record the entire making of this little guy, I have no in-progress pictures. Hopefully that’ll be fine more most of you, as it’s just a simple little amigurumi. For those of you who’ve made amigurumi before, this will be a breeze.

Also I was too lazy to set up a surface to photograph it on so…have more shots of my hand! Hahaha

Well let’s get to it!

Supplies:

  • 4mm hook

  • ww yarn (red heart with love* is great for amigurumi because it’s soft but not too soft)

  • thread for nose/mouth

  • eyes (I used some tiny pastel brads from michaels)

  • stuffing

  • chalk pastels for blush (optional)

  • q-tip or small paint brush if using pastels

 Here’s what we’re working with:

Stuff the stubby legs completely and sew them near the outside on the bottom, and sew the arms on at an angle, flat, with no stuffing.

Sew the ears on flat as well.

Then get out your pastels and lightly rub the bottoms of the arms and feet, the inner ear, the cheeks, and the nose!
