Crochet Easter Bunny Pattern

by | All Designs, Crochet, Free Patterns, Kids & Toys, Spring

Well, my crochet monster easter egg was quickly confiscated by J as soon as he laid eyes on it, so I figured I should make something for LM as well, since now with two kids, everything needs to be fair.  One for you, and one for you. Since LM is too young for a toy that opens and holds candy, she got a 1-piece bunny as her (teething) toy.  A bunny rattle, actually.

I don’t have any pictures of it because it was a last minute idea, but I stuffed a bell into the egg with a bit of fiberfill before crocheting completely around the egg.  When I shake it, there’s a muffled ringing sound that attracts LM’s attention.  It doesn’t hold her attention, but that’s life…

Supplies:

Lily Sugar ‘n Cream Cotton Yarn in white, or other worsted weight yarn
size F (3.75 mm) crochet hook <- affliate link to Susan Bates crochet hooks
regular sized plastic egg
felt pieces for the ear and eyes
pink yarn or embroidery thread
scissors
yarn needle
hot glue

Abbreviations:

sts – stitch
sc – single crochet
sc2tog – single crochet to stitches together, to decrease a stitch in the round.

 

For this egg, I worked from the top down.  Once the bottom started to close up, I stuffed the plastic egg in, and worked the stitches around the egg.

Egg Top:

Round 1: Start with a magic circle. Work 6 sc into magic circle. (6 sts)

Round 2: Work 2 sc in each stitch around. (12 sts)

Round 3: *Sc 2, then sc 2 in next stitch.* Repeat from * around. (16 sts)

Round 4: *Sc 3, then sc 2 in next stitch.* Repeat from * around. (20 sts)

Round 5: *Sc 4, then sc 2 in next stitch.* Repeat from * around. (24 sts)

Round 6-12: Work 1 sc in each stitch around. (24 sts)

If you use a plastic egg instead of just stuffing with fiberfill, insert the egg here or at the latest, after the next round.  Otherwise, it won’t fit.

Round 13: *Sc 2, then sc2tog.* Repeat from * around. (18 sts)

Round 14: *Sc 1, then sc2tog.* Repeat from * around. (12 sts)

Round 15: sc2tog 6 times. (6 sts)

Once you have 6 stitches left, cut the yarn leaving a long tail and pull through the last stitch on the hook.  Using a yarn needle, sew through the front loops of each of the 6 stitches from the center outwards and then pull tight.  You can find a detailed tutorial for this closing method on Planet June called the Ultimate Finish.

Ears (Make 2):

Round 1: Start with a magic circle. Work 6 sc into magic circle. (6 sts)

Round 2: *Sc 1, then sc 2 in next stitch.* Repeat from * around. (9 sts)

Round 3: *Sc 2, then sc 2 in next stitch.* Repeat from * around. (12 sts)

Round 4-5: Work 1 sc in each stitch around. (12 sts)

Round 6: *Sc 2, sc2tog next stitch.* Repeat from * around. (9 sts)

Round 7: Work 1 sc in each stitch around. (9 sts)

Round 8: *Sc 1, sc2tog next stitch.* Repeat from * around. (6 sts)

Round 9-10: Work 1 sc in each stitch around. (6 sts)

Cut the yarn, leaving a long tail. Flatten the opening and sew together, then attach to the top of the body.

Make a pom-pom and attach it to the body.

Cut out pieces of felt for the inner ears and eyes.  Use pink embroidery thread or a strand of pink yarn to sew a small nose/mouth and create any expression you’d like.

    This bunny is beautiful! I have a question (I’m new in this) Do I close every round with a slip stitch or I continue the nexo round?
