About the Pattern:
This is a beginner level Tunisian crochet pattern that you can complete in a few hours. The pattern uses bulky yarn and works up super quick and makes for a perfect gift for the little ones in your life. You can make it with Bernat Blanket yarn and Lion Brand Yarn Go For Faux.
Initially, I made this bunny with Michael’s Sweet Snuggles yarn which is a super soft and squishy yarn. I liked the overall look but found it to be a bit bulky and the yarn is not easily accessible. It would also require a larger hook.
I decided to try it with Bernat Blanket yarn since Bernat blanket is a more accessible and readily available yarn and I love how it turned out! The finished bunny measures 18 inches from ears to feet and 10 inches across from one arm to the other arm.
You will make the pattern as follows:
I have divided the following steps into three parts in videos I’ll be sharing throughout the TCAL.
- Make the face and embroider with size 4 worsted weight yarn in a contrasting color.
- Continue making the neck and body.
- Continue making a mirror image of the neck and body (so it will be one long piece that will be folded over and sewn while stuffing with polyfill).
- Make legs with the Bernat Blanket yarn.
- Crochet arms and sew onto the body.
- Work ears and weave in all ends!
You will learn how to:
-Tunisian crochet foundation row and Tunisian Simple Stitch
-Increase stitches in Tunisian crochet
-Decrease stitches in Tunisian crochet
-Embroider a face onto a crochet project
-Make a pom pom
-Make a magic circle and crochet in rounds
