With my love of making t-shirt yarn baskets, I knew I wanted to make Easter baskets this year. So along with some pretty pastel yarn to make them with, I searched for something else to add to them, and while trying to make something else entirely ( a flower I think), came up with this cute little crochet Easter bunny applique.
These little bunnies would look good on baskets, as bunting, using smaller yarn would look so cute on Easter cards, Easter bonnets and even paper Easter baskets.
If you would like to make your own crochet easter bunny applique please find the pattern below.
Crochet Easter Bunny Applique pattern
What you need
7mm crochet hook
Single Crochet (SC)
Double Crochet (DC)
Slip Stitch (SlSt)
Start with a magic circle
Round 1: 6 sc into the ring, pull tight and join to first sc with a SlSt
Round 2: Ch 1 (doesn’t count as a stitch), 2sc in each stitch (12) join with SlSt to first sc make sure to skip the ch 1 at the beginning of the round.
Round 3: Ch 2, 3 dc into the same stitch
Round 4: Ch 3
Round 5: 1sc each in the 2nd and 3rd chains from the hook
SlSt into the side of the top of that 3rd dc then slip stitch into the bottom side of the same DC
Slip stitch into the next 2 sc of the circle (the ch and 3DC of the head were in the first stitch)
Cut yarn and pull through
Then put your hook from back to front through the next stitch and pull the yarn end through to bring it to the back.
Lastly, sew in your ends and you have 1 bunny.
For added effect, glue on a little pompom for the tail, and you could even give him eyes and whiskers with black thread, or even googly or safety eyes.
I hope this made sense and I hope you have fun making him, now hop to it!
Sorry, couldn’t help the bunny pun. Oh and here is a bunny I made using acrylic DK and a 3.5mm hook, just to show you that it will work with pretty much any yarn you want to use and the appropriate hook to go with it.
If you post any of your bunny’s on social media, please tag me @crochetbycarms, and they will be added to my bunny army.
Notes: In case you hadn’t noticed, yes I am a left-hander and so all my photos will reflect this. If you have any issues with my photos making things harder for you (I know how confusing trying to make sense of things going the wrong way is), please leave me a comment or send me a message and ill flip the photos around just for you.
