Pattern Details







Skill Level:

small skill level requirement Beginner

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Crocheting in rounds
  • Single crochet stitch
  • Increasing and decreasing

Pattern Description:

Includes one PDF file on 11 pages with all the instructions needed to make your own sitting toy bunny with straight or floppy ears.

Pattern is written in English, using US crochet terminology. I included detailed instructions, many step-by-step photos and useful tips and tricks.

In this tutorial I will explain starting a piece with an adjustable loop (magic ring), finishing a piece, joining pieces, knotting and hiding yarn tails. Pattern includes unlimited support from me via email.

For a little preview, take a look at the first three pages - http://engsidrun.spire.ee/blogs/media/blogs/a/patterns/EN-007.04_preview.pdf


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

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • 20 cm (8") with worsted weight yarn and a 3 mm crochet hook.
  • 13 cm (5") with DK weight pure alpaca wool and a 2,25 mm crochet hook.


  • Yarn. I used aran weight cotton and acrylic blend, 92m/50g (100yds/50g) / aran / 10 ply / 8 wpi. You will need about 175g or 325m (355yds) of yarn.
  • 3,5 - 4,25 mm crochet hook (US size 4/E - 6/G) or according to the yarn.
  • Polyester fiberfill, wool, wadding etc. for stuffing.
  • 12 mm (1/2") safety eyes or buttons, beads, felt etc.
  • Embroidery floss.
  • Scissors, yarn needle, stitch marker.
  • Ribbon, thread and sewing needle.

Suggested yarn:

355 yards of Worsted weight

Preferred Brand/Yarn:

Washed Haze Aran

Excellent Great pattern, even for beginners  May 4, 2014

It was my first crocheting project, the instructions were easy to follow even for a beginner. From those instructions I finally learned how to make a magic circle, although I've watched a few videos before:)
I made a lot of mistakes, did each part a few times and only at the very end I realized that the back side is on the front. However, even far from perfect it looks cute and I'm very proud of myself.
Thank you for this awesome, awesome pattern!
