Just pull out all the stitch markers when you’re done with the piece. Safety eyes work well with tightly crocheted amigurumi, but because these stitches are so loose, the eyes can pop out easily, even when it’s “locked”. Another weekend, another picture of me crocheting at the playground.🎠 Here’s progress on my bunny ears – it’s going much faster now that I have a working pattern! When you’re adding the eyes, make sure to insert the eye through an actual stitch itself, splitting the yarn in that stitch. Most of the time, you are working somewhat blind, using your fingers to feel out each stitch instead of seeing each stitch. (12) Round 3: Work [1 sc in next st, 2 sc in next st] 6 times. (6) Cut yarn and fasten off, leaving a long tail for sewing. (12) Round 5: Work [1 sc in next 3 st, 2 sc in next st] 3 times. (15) Round 9: Work [1 sc in next 3 st, sc2tog] 3 times. (12) Round 12: Work [1 sc in next 2 st, sc2tog] 3 times. (9) Round 15: Work [1 sc in next st, sc2tog] 3 times. Cut yarn, leaving a yarn tail for sewing, and fasten off. (6) Round 2: Work [1 sc in next st, 2 sc in next st] 3 times. But this curl also hides mistakes, and allows you to crochet looser than you normally would for amigurumi because he fuzz covers the holes! (18) Round 4: Work 1 sc in each st around.(18) Round 5: Work [1 sc in each of next 2 st, 2 sc in next st] 6 times. (24) Round 10: Work [1 sc in each of next 2 st, and 1 sc2tog] 6 times. (18) Round 13: Work [1 sc in next st, 1 sc2tog] 6 times. But now that I think about it, telling a story is always good. Different yarns show different results, as you can see below. So after all was said and done, I let her have at it to see how she’d react to these new stuffed animals. Please share your Floppy-Eared Stuffed Bunny with me on Facebook (One Dog Woof) or Instagram (@1dogwoof)! Check out my pattern shops on Craftsy and Etsy where you can purchase printable PDFs of my latest crochet patterns. So here I am, starting this post by admitting I never know how to start posts. It seems like a silly question, because of course you can make a pattern in any yarn, hook and color that you’d like, but your result will vary depending on mileage, so to speak. (9) Round 8: Work 1 sc in each of next 3 st, 1 sc3tog, 1 sc in next st, 1 sc2tog. I had shared on Instagram that M just seemed to know what I was making, even though I was barely through making the head of a single bunny.Do not attach it in the space between rows or stitches, as those gaps are too big.
Lastly, make a pom pom and sew it to the bunny bottom. Plus, it’s a pom pom, and who ever says no to a pom pom?

This is a story about an uncomplicated, classic, no-fuss crochet stuffed bunny rabbit, and the path she took from being an idea to a real bunny, just in time for Easter. Worsted weight isn’t always soft when crocheted tightly enough to prevent stuffing from coming out. I designed the bunny pattern using Lion Brand Vanna’s Colors, a discontinued yarn that I had in my stash, but it’s a good example of how the bunny would look using a normal, twisted, worsted weight or slightly bulky yarn.

I also received an 8mm (size L) Clover USA crochet hook while at Creativation in January – it was the perfect size to work with this yarn, allowing fairly loose stitches, and not splitting the yarn.
The stitches were still tight enough to enable the fuzzy yarn to cover up all the stitch definition and keep the stuffing from falling out. (12) Stop here to stuff the head before the hole gets too small.
