Baby Bunny Amigurumi

Super easy and quick this Baby Bunny Amigurumi crochet pattern will bring a taste of spring to any season. As spring really begins (at the time of this post), everyone is looking forward to wildflowers, baby birds, sunshine and light showers; but to me, nothing says spring more than Easter. Easter is my personal new year which I greet with fasting, meditation and prayer. There are so many things related to spring, though! Flip-flops, bluebonnets, campfires, sprouts, blossoms and bunnies are just a few. I had the opportunity to care for about 10 bunnies 3 years ago. Needless to say, they provided great fertilizer for my garden. In honor of bunny lovers everywhere, I present to you my Baby Bunny amigurumi pattern. One of these cuties is the size of a tennis ball and works up in about 45 minutes. That’s my guess anyway. With so many interruptions around here, I can never really tell. (I say that lovingly.)

PomPom Guest Tutorial by Stitch 11

 

For the ears, there are two options to start in the case you have not worked a foundation triple (treble) crochet. To stiffen the ears, I crocheted over the tail. Starting with an 8″ tail was ideal for me, but with an even longer tail and you can crochet over it on both sides. Body and feet are worked in a continuous round.

Ears:

First option to start:  Starting with ch2, ftr15

Second option to start (alternative):  ch16, starting in 2nd ch from hook tr15 add 3tr in last ch (4 total in last ch, total 18sts), continue working around the opposite side, tr14, hdc in chain (15sts- 34sts, including beg ch), fasten off leaving a long tail to sew.

Sew onto R8 on bunny’s head. Enjoy!
