With Easter not too far away, now is the perfect time to start crocheting some Easter bunnies. These would make great little gifts and they’re quick and easy to complete so you can make plenty. They’ll also look great in a variety of colours but here I’ve used Stylecraft Special DK (Mushroom 1832) with a little bit of white for the tail – you can see this in the photo below – and black for the nose.

There will be another rabbit related pattern uploaded in the coming weeks – hopefully in time for Easter. So you can have some matching items if you make this one now. Don’t forget to check the site regularly for the new pattern or you can subscribe to the newsletter at the bottom of the page to receive emails when new patterns are published.

So grab some yarn and a hook (3.5mm) and scroll down to get started!

Fasten off, stuff tail and sew hole shut.

Use a yarn needle to sew all the parts together. I would recommend starting by adding the ears and eyes to the head and then using a strand of black yarn to make a nose in a ‘Y’ shape. Then sew the legs, head and tail onto the body (the picture below may help show you where the pieces should go).

All that’s left to do now is to head on over to Ravelry and upload your finished rabbit to the project page
