Blue Bunny

By:

Crochet this fun bunny for a child that you know. It's so neat to make because it only uses one skein of yarn. It's an intermediate pattern just for you.

Find this and other fun amigurumi patterns at "19 Free Amigurumi Crochet Patterns"!

Materials:

  • Caron International One Pound (100% acrylic; 16 oz/454 g, 812 yds/742 m skein): One skein 508 Sky Blue
  • One size US G-6 (4mm) crochet hook, or size to obtain gauge.
  • Stitch marker
  • Two safety eyes—18mm diameter (or buttons)
  • Polyester fiberfill
  • Scraps of pink yarn (for nose) and brown yarn (for mouth)
  • Yarn needle

GAUGE:  Gauge is not critical for this project. Work tightly to ensure that the stuffing will not show through the stitches.
STITCHES USED:  Chain (ch), double crochet (dc), half double crochet (hdc), single crochet (sc)
SPECIAL TERMS:

  • sc2tog: Single crochet 2 together—[Insert hook in next st, yo and pull up a lp] twice, yo and draw through all 3 lps on hook.
  • hdc2tog: Half double crochet 2 together—[Yo, insert hook in next st and pull up a lp] twice, yo and draw through 5 lps on hook.
  • lp st: Loop stitch—Wrap yarn around index finger twice and hold behind work, insert hook into indicated st and between the yarn wrap and your finger, pull all lps through st, yo and draw through all lps. Note: Loops form on side of fabric that is facing away from you.

NOTES:

  • Bunny is worked in continuous rounds; do not join and do not turn at the ends of rounds. Place a stitch marker to indicate the beginning of rounds and move marker as each round is worked.
  • Stuff body, head, arms, and legs as work progresses. Do not stuff ears or tail.
  • When fastening off, always leave a 12-18"/30.5-45.5cm long tail for sewing.
  • If desired, weight the bottom with a small nylon bag of beans or poly-pellets. Place the bag at the bottom of the body before beginning to stuff with fiberfill.
  • A yarn pompom may be used for the bunny's tail, instead of the crochet tail.
