Amigurumi Bunny Crochet Pattern

Amigurumi Bunny Crochet Pattern

As a companion to my Amigurumi Little Lamb pattern, here is a tiny bunny that is sure to brighten up your spring! These bunnies are super cute, easy, and quick to make – so you can make a whole bunch just in time for Easter with this pattern!

The method of making the body/base of the Bunny is really simple – it’s basically a large ball (or maybe closer to a rounded square) that all the parts like the face, ears, feet, etc. are sewn onto. I think this gives it a really cute and simplistic look that is very true to what Amigurumi characters are all about! Plus, I’m all about keeping things nice and easy and fun in my patterns, and having a simple base like this really helps with that.

(Pin it for later!)

When choosing yarns for this bunny pattern, I knew I wanted eye-catching pastels, but also a few really soothing neutral tones for more “woodland” looking bunnies. I turned to a favorite of mine, the Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice collection! And yes, that is Vanna White on the front of the yarn label! If anyone else out there has fond childhood memories of watching Wheel of Fortune like I do, then it will be an added bonus that the lovely Vanna also happens to have her own line of yarn now! I love that it’s so soft but also affordable for more utility-oriented projects like amigurumi. Plus, it’s available in tons of colors! For this project, I chose Lilac, Dusty Green, Duckie, Linen, Barley, and White. Find some on Amazon below!!
