SMALL BUNNY RABBIT CROCHET PATTERN

The mini version of my original Snuggle Bunny is here! Small but mighty! I used hobby lobby I love this yarn and a 3.75 mm hook and it measures approximately 7 inches tall. Perfect for little hands and quick projects! I love the long ears, they droop down towards the back laying nicely behind the bunny. This mini version also works up the same as the original snuggle bunny as in, the body and head are worked up in just one piece after joining both legs for less sewing!

Read Before beginning:
  • STITCH MARKER – You will be working in rounds so keep a stitch marker close to use when working up the doll. Unless otherwise stated to CH and turn. They will mark the 1st st of each round.
  • TENSION – Make sure you use a tight enough tension to help close any “holes” a loose tension may cause. I crochet yarning under then Over to create a tighter stitch. Go down a hook size if needed. ( my tension is naturally tight)
  • ASSEMBLY – The amigurumi is worked up by first making two legs, joining them together, and working up the body and the head in one piece. Arms, ears, embroidered eyes, and nose
  • BLUSH (OPTIONAL) This is optional but you could also use blush to add some sweetness to the cheeks. I use cosmetic grade blush using a dense small brush and little at a time. I have heard paint, fabric crayons, and wax doll crayons work as well. I used Blush.
  • PATTERN (EX. *SC in 8, INV DEC in the next. Repeat from * to the end. (36) ) You will end that round with the second step of what that round instructs. This will vary.

ANOTHER YARN I TRIED WAS COBOO FROM LION BRAND

I tried a soft yarn that was different in size for this bunny. I used Mauve color from Lion Brand Coboo. I used the same for the bow along with a D – 3.25 mm hook.

It turned out smaller measuring approximately 5.5 inches tall.

One thing I was advised about using this yarn was that it splits so going slowly helps with that. It did do that to me several times and I just fixed it as it happened. I used my clover hook.

SlSt to the next st and fasten off, leave a long tail long enough to sew on the side of the body. Approximately Round 23 of the body.

Arms

Nose – Using pink or the color of floss of your choice. Make a Y in the center of one side of the head. I leave two stitches in between the top two angled lines and one stitch down for the vertical line. Because of the thinness of the floss, I went over everything about 2x.

Nose

Eyes Using BLACK/BROWN EMBROIDERY FLOSS – I went over one stitch at a time to create a curve towards the top then three eyelashes on the outer side of the eye. 

Eyes

Ears MAKE 2

[No poly-fil needed for the arms.]

Sl st in the next st. Fasten Off leaving a tail long enough to sew on the head. 

Sew on the 3rd round from the center of the top of the head. The ears should be slightly more towards the back of the head and 3 sts apart. They should lay down on the back of the head. laying away from the eye. {pins could be very helpful to find a placement.}

Ears. Bunny is facing up.

Bonus pattern to add on top of the bunny’s head!

The pattern for a small Bow:

CH 18

Sl St to the first chain to form a circle.

CH 3

DC in each chain (18)

CH1, SC in each st (18)

Fasten off and leave a long tail to wrap the center 10x and to sew on the head.

Rose – 

This rose is worked in just one row. It will curl up as you get closer to the final stitch.

CH 18

SC in the 2nd chain from hook.

3 DC in the next CH.

Slip Stitch in the next CH.

3 DC in the next CH.

Keep alternating the Slip Stitches and 3 DC’s then SC in the last st.

Leave a long tail to sew the flower and sew it on the bear’s head or where you prefer.

Starting with the last SC you made, start to roll the rose up and sew in the back through the chains where the 3DC’s were made. Until it no longer opens up or spreads. You want it set in place before sewing it on the bunny.
