I find this little bunny rabbit really cute! I made many different versions to find the best shape. I also showed some in a 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.
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
Tell me in the comments of other uses that come to your mind!

The rabbit is mainly in doublecrochets (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!
Here you can see the different versions of the rabbit. It took several tries to get one that actually looks like a rabbit!
