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?
And so, I present to you: The Bigger Bunny! (And friend Tiny Bunny.)
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:
Baby yarn (Any kind of yarn will work, but I like baby yarn because it’s soft)
Stuffing (I use polyfill, but other kinds will work)
Row marker (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.
Row 1: Ch 4, sl st, sc 5 in the resulting circle. (5)
Row 2: Increase around. (10)
Row 3: Increase around. (20)
Row 4: Sc 6, make ear, sc 3, make ear, sc 11. (20)
Row 5: (Sc 1, increase) 3 times, go behind ear, increase, sc 1, increase, go behind ear, increase, (sc 1, increase) 5 times. (31)
Row 6: Sc in each sc. (31)

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
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.
