Brini- The little Bunny- Free Pattern

Just in case you can’t get enough of bunnies I’ve got something for you. This little bunny will make a cute combo with the bunny rattle I posted a month ago. Brini was my April contribution to Craftaholics Anonymous so if you saw that post you’ll recognise her. I’m sharing the pattern here again, this time with the “translation” to UK terms just in case you prefer to use them over US crochet terms (and for everyone else to missed out on the post the last time) :)

You’ll need:

  • DK yarn in cream (I used Stylecraft Special DK in cream for mine)
  • a little bit of DK yarn in pink and black
  • 4 mm hook
  • a little bit of contrast fabric
  • sewing thread in contrast colour
  • tapestry needle

hearts

Abbreviations

ch= chain

sc= single crochet (US term); double crochet (dc, UK term)

sc2tog= single crochet decrease (US term); double crochet decrease (dc2tog, UK term)

st= stitch(es)

In my patterns UK terms are always given in brackets.

Let’s get started:

There are two different approaches to this pattern. You can crochet the ears onto the head following the instructions in the rattle pattern, as the head part is the same. Or you can just sew them on afterwards as described here.
