Free pattern: Tiny bunny

I love making these tiny bunny rabbits, they make such cute keychains or little gifts, equally appreciated by kids and adults alike.

Free crochet pattern: Tiny bunny with straight or floppy ears // Kristi Tullus (spire.ee)

They are so quick and easy to crochet, although the small details can be a bit fiddly to make. So, if you don't enjoy working on small details, you may want to skip this one.

 

Size

5 cm (2”), without ears, crocheted with sport weight alpaca and wool blend (50g = 250m) and a 1,50 mm hook.

Tip! You can use the same pattern to make larger or smaller toys by using finer or bulkier yarn. Pick a crochet hook at least a size smaller than suggested on yarn label and crochet tightly enough to achieve a tight gauge that will not allow the stuffing to show through the fabric.

 

Difficulty

2. Beginner - suitable for novice crocheters, includes small details.

 

Skills required

• Single crochet stitch
Magic ring
Crocheting in spiral
Increasing
Decreasing
Finishing and joining pieces.

 

You will need

• Yarn. I used fingering weight alpaca and wool blend, 50g = 250m (50g = 273yd) /
5 ply / 14 wpi. You will need about 12-14 g of yarn for each bunny.
• 1,50 - 2,00 mm crochet hook (US thread hook size 7 - 1) or according to the yarn.
• Polyester fiberfill, wool, wadding etc. for stuffing.
• 6 mm (1/4") safety eyes or buttons, beads, felt etc.
• Cotton embroidery floss.
• Yarn needle, scissors, stitch marker.
• Ribbon, matching thread and sewing needle.

 

Abbreviations

mr, sc n = magic ring – crochet n single crochet stitches into the adjustable loop.
sc = single crochet stitch (double crochet stitch in UK and Australia).
sc n = crochet n single crochet stitches, one in each stitch.
inc = increase – crochet two single crochet stitches in the same stitch.
dec = decrease – crochet two stitches together using the invisible decrease method.
(sc 4, inc) x n = repeat the pattern between parentheses n times.
(sc 4, inc) x 6 = [36] = number of stitches in a round after finishing round.

 

Notes

• Work in a continuous spiral, do not join rounds or turn your work, unless instructed otherwise in the pattern.
• Use a stitch marker or a piece of yarn to mark the end or the beginning of a round. Move the marker up after completing each round.
• All stitches are worked into both loops, unless instructed otherwise in the pattern.

 

Head

Round 1: mr, sc 6 = [6]
Round 2: inc x 6 = [12]
Round 3: (sc, inc) x 6 = [18]
Round 4: (inc, sc 2) x 6 = [24]
Round 5: (sc 3, inc) x 6 = [30]
Round 6: sc, inc, (sc 4, inc) x 5, sc 3 = [36]
Rounds 7-10: sc in each stitch = [36]
Round 11: sc, dec, (sc 4, dec) x 5, sc 3 = [30]
Round 12: (sc 3, dec) x 6 = [24]

Attach the safety toy eyes between rounds 9 and 10, leaving 9 stitches (count 8 holes) between them.

Start stuffing the head. Keep adding a bit of fiberfill after every few rounds, stuffing the head firmly.

Tip! Sew the ears to the head, embroider the nose and add any embellishments before you sew the head to the body - this way you can fasten all yarn tails securely with a knot under the head.

Fasten off and hide the yarn tail. Stuff the body firmly. Sew the head to the body. Add a bit more stuffing before closing the seam.

Add a ribbon around the neck or a bow to the head. Sew it to place through the bow with matching thread.

Finish sewing and hide all yarn tails. And done!
