Would you like to crochet this little cute cat in a Halloween hat? He is…
Create some cute bunnies with this free crochet bunny pattern! This mini amigurumi toy is adorable and already dressed. It is also quick and easy to crochet so you can make gifts for all of the kids.
I don’t like to sew parts, so to help reduce the amount of sewing, the head, the arms and the body of the bunny are crocheted all in one piece.
You can use different types of yarn but make sure to use a crochet hook that’s one or two sizes smaller, it makes the fabric a little tighter, so it will hold the stuffing without showing holes.
- Cotton yarn: sport/4ply (size 2, fine or baby weight) in white, pink, and beige color.
- Size 2.5 mm crochet hook.
- Poly-Fil Fiberfill stuffing.
- 10 mm black safety eyes.
- Embroidery floss in white, brown, black, and pink color.
- Yarn needle, stitch marker, pins and scissors.
- Optional: decoration button
