Start with the head
Make a magic ring, leaving a long end. We’ll use it later to embroider the eyelids.
Rd 1: Sc 6 into magic ring (6)
Rd 2: Inc 6 (12)
Rd 3: [sc 1, inc 1]*6 (18)
Rd 4: [sc 2, inc 1]*6 (24)
Rd 5 to 8 (4 rds): Sc 24 (24)
Rd 9: [sc 2, dec 1]*6 (18)
Insert the safety eyes between rd 6 and 7 with 5 to 6 st space in between. Don’t secure them yet. Thread the magic ring yarn end on a yarn needle and embroider the eyelids with 2 small stitches on the upper outer side of each eye. You can see how I did this here in my video tutorial.
Embroider the nose with pink embroidery floss in a Y shape across rd 8 and 9, secure the safety eyes and fill the head with as much stuffing as possible.
Rd 10: [sc 1, dec 1]*6 (12)
Rd 11: [sc 1, inc 1]*6 (18)
Rd 12: Sc 18 (18)
Rd 13: Sc 13, inc 4, sc 1 (22)
Rd 14: Sc 5, inc 2, sc 15 (24)
Rd 15: Inc 3, sc 1, inc 1, sc 4, inc 1, sc 1, inc 3, dec, sc 6, dec (30)
Rd 16: Sc 7, dec, sc 4, dec, sc 15 (28)
Rd 17: Sc 6, dec 4 times, sc 14 (24)
Rd 18: Sc 5, ch 3, hdc 2, dec 4 times, ch 3, hdc 2, sc 11 (28)
Rd 19: Dec, sc 7, dec 2, sc 10, dec, sc 1, 1 bobble st, sc 1 (24)
Rd 20: In BLO only: [sc 2, dec]*6 (18)
Fill the body with fiberfill. Don’t overstuff, so your bunny will be able to sit.
Rd 21: [sc 1, dec]*6 (12)
Rd 22: Dec 6 times (6)
Fasten off, leaving a very long yarn tail and insert it in BLO of all 6 st, then stitch through the middle to the bunny’s side, in between rd 13 and 14, creating a shallow cavity on the bottom, that will help the bunny stand.
Give the hind legs some more definition by stitching through the body horizontally a few times, working your way downward and forward, all the way to where the paws of the hind legs go. You can see how I did this here in my video tutorial.
Stitch on the 2 paws of the hind legs with approx. 5 stitches each.
Then make a few stitches in the front, between rd 17 &18 to rd 12 & 13 and back to define the shape of the forelegs. Make a long stitch in the front center, across rd 13 to 17 to separate the two forelegs. Weave in the yarn end.
Crochet the ears (make 2)
Rd 1: Sc 4 in magic ring (4)
Rd 2: [inc 1, sc 1]*2 (6)
Rd 3: [inc 1, sc 2]*2 (8)
Rd 4: [inc 1, sc 3]*2 (10)
Rd 5: Sc 10 (10)
Rd 6: [dec, sc 3]*2 (8)
Rd 7: Dec 4 (4)
Fasten off, leaving a long end for sewing.
Sew the ears on rd 3 on the top of the head, facing upward and slightly backward. Fold them lengthwise to give them a bunny ear shape. You can paint the inside of the ears pink, using pink blush and eyeshadow applicator.
If you like, you can embroider the little bunny claws with white embroidery floss and a large-eyed sewing needle, making 3 small vertical stitches on each paw.
Your little bunny is now complete!
