Isn’t this little bunny rabbit really cute! I made many different versions to find the best shape. I also showed the designs in my crochet Facebook group to get opinions about them. This is the result! There’s a step by step video to show you how to crochet it and a written pattern with a crochet chart.
The rabbit could be equally an Easter decoration or used on baby and children’s items.
Use the rabbit motif for
- Easter cards
- Easter table decoration
- Starch the bunnies and hang in window or doorway
See my video about starching crochet using white glue
- Sew on baby blanket or shawl
- Sew on child’s clothing – e.g. as a patch in jeans
- Baby mobile
- Bunting in a child’s room
- Children’s parties: as decoration, prizes or in going-away party bags

The rabbit is mainly in double crochets (US crochet term) but for the shaping I have used different sizes of stitches. I used mercerized cotton yarn and a crochet hook size 3 mm.That way the rabbit is 9 cm (3½ in) high.
You can use any yarn and hook but the size of your rabbit will depend on the yarn used. I like to use the bright coloured aluminium hooks but if I have a larger project, I prefer hooks with an ergonomic handle.
If you make the rabbits for a baby, I would suggest you sew on eyes or if you choose to use a button or a bead, make sure it is very tightly sewn on!

You can also make a lovely baby decoration or baby mobile by crocheting or sewing two rabbits together.
