Bigger Bunny Crochet Pattern

Hey, everyone!

Before I give you the crochet pattern, I’d like to make a minor detour:  You may have seen a link to Koko’s blog Lollipops and Rainbows over in the sidebar there.  Koko has created a few really cute amigurumi crochet patterns.  In fact, she created the bunny pattern that inspired mine!  So why don’t you hop on over to her blog and check it out?

Now that you’re back, let’s look at the pattern.  Like its name, the Bigger Bunny is, well, bigger.  Bigger than what, you ask?

Tiny Bunny

Bigger than this.

And so, I present to you: The Bigger Bunny! (And friend Tiny Bunny.)

Tiny Bunny and Bigger Bunny

Don’t they look cute together?

One other thing: For now, I’m calling this pattern the “Bigger Bunny” crochet pattern, but I really need a better name.  If you have any ideas, feel free to share!

Bigger Bunny Crochet Pattern

What you need:

F hook

Baby yarn  (Any kind of yarn will work, but I like baby yarn because it’s soft)

Needle (optional)

Embroidery floss or colored thread (optional)

To make ear: Ch 10, sc down, turn, sc in each sc, turn, sl st in each sc.

Tie off and weave in ends.  If you like, embroider a face on the bunny.  (As evidenced in the photos above, I usually don’t.) Now you’re done!

Crochet Abbreviations and Terms

ch: chain

sc: single crochet

sl st: slip stitch

increase: 2 sc in each sc

decrease: 1 sc over 2 sc

Here’s the method I use for decreasing: Stick hook through next sc.  Pull yarn through (2 loops on needle).  Repeat for next sc (3 loops on needle).  Yarn over and pull through all three loops.
