Supplies

4.0mm Crochet Hook, Stuffing, Tapestry Needle, Scissors, 6mm Safety Eyes.
Yarn Used: 4/Medium Weight in any color.

Additional Information:

Pattern Difficulty: Beginner
You can make this bunny with any desired hook, yarn weight, etc. It’s a great project for scrap yarn and works up quickly. For this pattern, I used a 4mm Hook and 4/Medium weight yarn.
We start by making the head, which leads to the body. So the head and body are one piece. We then make the ears, arms and legs, tail, and sew them all on. After that, we sew on the nose.

Head:

In Main Color:

Round 1: 6 Sc in Magic Ring (6)
Round 2: *Inc* all around (12)
Round 3: *Inc, Sc* 1 time. Inc in next st. Sc in next st. Add different colored st marker to Sc just made. This marks where we will place the eyes. *Inc, Sc* 2 times. Inc in next st. Sc in next st. Add st marker to Sc just made. *Inc, Sc* 1 time (18)
Round 3 Pictured Below

Arms: (Make 2)

In Main Color

Round 2-3: *Sc* all around (6)
Finish off and pin to the body.

Legs: (Make 2)

In Main Color

Round 1: 6 Sc in Magic Ring (6)
Round 2-5: *Sc* all around (6)
Finish off and pin to the body.

Tail:

There are two ways to do the tail. One way is by making a pom-pom and sewing it on, or the other is making a crochet tail. I used the pom-pom version on mine.

Pom-Pom Tail

With white yarn, I wrap it around my ring finger and pinky 30 times. Remove from your hand and get a new piece of white yarn. Wrap the new yarn around the entire center on the pom pom and tie. Make sure the new yarn is wrapped tight. Now cut the loops and trim the pom pom. Now pin on pom-pom to butt.

Crochet Tail:

Round 1: In White, 10 Sc in Magic Ring (10)
Round 2-3: *Sc* all around (10)
Finish off and pin to the body. Sew on.

Assembly:

1. Pin the two ears on the head, aligned with the eyes. Sew ears on.
2. Pin the two arms close together on the bottom of the body. Pin the two legs on the side of the body. Sew them on.
3. Now sew the tail to the butt of the rabbit.
4. Now with pink, sew on a nose between the two eyes.

Yay! You’re all finished! If you made this project I would be SO HAPPY if you upload a picture on the Ravelry project page, or tag me on Instagram @StringyDingDing, or “try” it on Pinterest.

  1. How would you recommend altering the pattern for a larger sized bunny?

    1. Hi Kathryn πŸ™‚ The first way you can make a larger bunny is to use very thick, blanket style yarn. That’s how I made the pastel multi-color bunny shown in the pictures. The other way is, as you mentioned, altering the pattern. To make the head bigger you can continue increasing after round 4, so the next round would be (Inc, Sc 3* all around. Then the next Round: *Inc, Sc 4* and so on. This also means you will need to *Sc* around a few extra rounds depending on how much you increased the head. So if you only increase an extra 2 rounds, you can add 3 rounds of *Sc* only. For the rest of the pattern, you can follow it and adjust it based on how much bigger you want the rabbit. So I hope this was able to help! If you have any questions please let me know πŸ™‚

  2. I’m sorry but i’m beginning crochet and i’m getting confused on the instructions. I’m currently trying to make the head but step 3 has me confused and what I did doesn’t look like the picture instead it looks like a wide and short cone.. I was wondering if you could help me.

  3. Nevermind I was able to fix it and make it look like the picture. I still don’t completely understand the instructions or what I did wrong.

    1. Hi Natalie,

      Thanks so much for your question – sorry I wasn’t able to get to it in time! Glad to hear that you were able to get it sorted πŸ™‚ However, I’d love to help you so you know what to do in future projects!

      So there’s a few reasons why your crochet would triangular like that.

      1. First, I would highly recommend counting your stitches while you crochet and counting your stitches after each round to make sure they match up with the number of stitches stated in the pattern. If you don’t do this it’s possible to end up with the wrong number of stitches, resulting in your crochet piece coming out wrong.

      So for the first 3 rounds here are the stitch counts:

      Round 1: (6)
      Round 2: (12)
      Round 3: (18)

      2. Second, from your photo it looks like you’ve made a total of 6 rounds. At the time you took the picture, were you doing Round 3? Or do you remember if you were on Round 6? If you were on Round 3, it looks like you’ve accidentally made too many rounds! There’s an easy fix for keeping track of your rounds, simply use a stitch marker and this will mark the very first stitch of every round. I see you have the two eye stitch markers to mark where to place the eyes, by chance did you forget to add a round stitch marker? If you have questions about them please let me know!

      3. Perhaps you accidentally did less than 6 stitches into the magic ring? If you do less than 6, this will make a triangle shape.

      4.
      Okay, and last is the pattern may have been difficult to interpret. I could definitely see Round 3 being confusing – we have a lot going on in a small span of stitches. Let me explain Round 3:

      In Round 3 we are adding 2 eye stitch markers to mark where to place the eyes. These are different from our Round stitch marker, which is why we have our eye stitch markers be in a different color yarn compared to the Round stitch marker. If they were all in the same color it would be so difficult to determine which markers were for the eyes and which is for the round! So just be extra sure to have the eye stitch markers in a different color.

      So Round 3 says:
      Round 3: *Inc, Sc* 1 time. Inc in next st. Sc in next st. Add different colored st marker to Sc just made. This marks where we will place the eyes. *Inc, Sc* 2 times. Inc in next st. Sc in next st. Add st marker to Sc just made. *Inc, Sc* 1 time (18)

      To write it out, Increase in the next stitch. Sc in the next stitch. (Note, we don’t increase and then single crochet into the same stitch). Increase into the next stitch, Sc in the next st. Add an eye stitch marker to the Sc you just made. Repeat *Increase in the next stitch, Sc in the next st* a total of 2 times (so this will use up a total of 4 stitches when doing this). Increase in the next stitch, Sc in the next st. Add an eye stitch marker to the Sc just made. Increase in the next stitch, Sc in the next stitch. We’re now at the end of the round, with a total of 18 stitches.

      Another much simpler way to write out that round without adding the eye stitch markers is *Inc in the next st, Sc in the next st* 6 times (18)

      I hope this helps! Your crochet skills look awesome already as a beginner crocheter! Please keep it up πŸ₯°

      1. Thank you this did clear some things up and I realized how I misinterpreted step three. I’ll make sure to ask you questions when things pop up. And thank you I had been crocheting before but I barely knew any of the technical terms and other types of stitches so I appreciate your willingness to help. I’m trying to crochet my gifts for Christmas and all the crochet projects are from your website so heads up if I need help on various things.

        1. Yay I’m glad that it helped! Haha I totally get that crocheting on your own is fun and easy, then learning terms and new stitches it like a whole other game!

          That’s so cool that you’re making Christmas gifts! (Especially all from my site!!) I hope people will really appreciate it πŸ™‚ There’s nothing more special than a handmade gift in my opinion ❀️ Please do feel free to ask questions along the way, send pictures, etc. Good thing you’re starting now, thinking ahead is always better!

  4. I made one of these bunnies to go with a baby blanket I made for a friend and my son claimed it before I could ship it. So, I made another! The pattern is so easy to follow. Thank you so much.

    1. Oh my gosh that’s SO cute!!! Is the bunny attached to the blanket like a lovey? Haha no wonder why your lovely son claimed it as his own, it’s super adorable! I also love the star blanket you made πŸ₯° The colors are really pretty, did you use a cake of yarn for it? Thank you so much for sharing this with me Tammi! LOVE IT! Keep on creating, I know you’re bringing many smiles to people’s faces (including mine 😊)

      1. Yes! I used Caron Cakes yarn to go with it. I love them so much! I used to attach the animal to the blanket but I decided this time to not do that with this one and the dinosaur rainbow one I made so they could be separate fun things for the babies as they got older. πŸ˜€

        1. I’ve never tried a Caron Cake yarn, it looks beautiful! Thanks for letting me know what brand, I’m definitely going to try making a blanket with one πŸ™‚ Another super fun yarn to make blankets from is Red Heart’s Ombre yarn!

          I think having the toy separate from the blanket so they can play with it is a really good idea! That’s something I didn’t really think about. Plus I’m sure they’ll be keeping those toys for a long time! How special πŸ₯°

  5. Hi, I made your duck/flamingo pattern the other day and loved it, (they’re sooo cute!! πŸ˜„) as well as the bunny a few weeks ago. You said in the comments on the duck pattern that one could sell products made from your pattern- I was wondering if the same went for the bunnies.

    1. Hi! Aw yay I’m really happy you’ve been having some fun with my patterns, it means so much to hear that 😍 I’m sure the bunnies you’ve made came out amazing, if you ever get a chance I would love to see a picture of them!

      As for your questions, yes you can sell the bunny toy you make from my pattern πŸ™‚ Any toy you make from my site you can sell! I just don’t allow anyone to sell the actual written pattern!

      Good luck on your selling, I would definitely buy some bunnies for Easter πŸ‡

  6. Hi! How would you recommend altering the pattern to make the bunny smaller? I am hoping for a pocket-sized bunny : )

    1. Hi Rebecca! These bunnies are about 3″, if you’d like them even smaller there’s 2 things you can do!

      First, I would recommend using a smaller size yarn πŸ™‚ This pattern originally uses 4/medium weight yarn, so use a size 3/light size yarn. Using a smaller yarn will make the bunny smaller!

      Then, use a smaller hook. Instead of using a 4.0mm hook like the pattern suggests, use a 2.0mm hook!

      I hope this was able to help πŸ™‚ If you have any other questions please just feel free to ask 😍
