Free Crochet Pattern - Baby Snuggle Bunny

This beautifully soft Baby Snuggle Bunny has been made with 100% wool handspun yarn which makes it incredible soft and natural for baby but you can use any super bulky, super chunky yarn of your choice.

You will need
  • 30 yards approx. of handspun yarn or super bulky/super chunky yarn in the colour of your choice
  • 6.0mm crochet hook
  • Some pink felt
  • Some short lengths of DK/Light worsted weight yarn in pink for sewing eyes and ears
This pattern uses the Iris Stitch but previous knowledge of this stitch is not required.
This pattern is in US terminology.

Finishing
  • Sew your head onto your body, slightly over-lapping, see photo
  • Cut out some ear shapes in your felt, slightly smaller than your crocheted ears so they sit inside, and sew onto your ears using some DK/Light worsted weight pink yarn, it doesnt have to be neat as the home-made look is what we want to achieve
  • Cut out two paw shapes in your felt and sew onto your body at opposite corners
  • Sew some eyes and a criss-cross mouth onto your face
And now you're done!
