Whether you need to crochet a bunny for Easter, a baby shower, or just a Birthday, there is never a wrong time for an easy bunny pattern like this one. Only needing about 90grams of yarn, you can easily make this bunny for any occasion.
You can make this amigurumi bunny from any yarn of your liking. It can be a tiny rabbit made from 4ply cotton to fit in a baby’s hand or make it with big plush blanket yarn for a cute snuggle buddy in bed.
As I have mentioned in the beginning, you will only need about 90grams of yarn in total for this bunny pattern.
I used Elle cotton DK, grey for the bunny, and Kismet 50/50 for the little scarf around the neck.
You can find these yarns at any local yarn shop.
I used a 3mm crochet hook for this pattern. If you want to make a smaller rabbit, I would suggest using a 2.5mm crochet hook for 4ply yarn, and if you’re going to go bigger, using blanket yarn, move a hook size up to 5mm or 6mm.
