Brini – The bunny rattle Free pattern

Brini- The Bunny Rattle

Easter is not too far away anymore and this means that I should get going with my Easter presents. And of course this year there will be some baby relevant gifts in the Easter basket. And since I’ve been in rattle fever recently it is not really surprising that I made a bunny rattle pattern for you to hopefully enjoy :) Brini’s ears are joined as you go, which minimises the sewing a little bit.

  • DK yarn in rose, cream and a tiny bit of black

  1. I think there’s a typo. You hope you’ve inspired us to make a rattle, not a crochet beaded necklace :)

    Love the little bunny
