FREE PATTERN: Tiny Bunnies

I love making these tiny bunny rabbits, they make such cute keychains or little gifts, equally appreciated by kids and adults alike.

They are so quick and easy to crochet, although the small details can be a bit fiddly to make. So, if you don't enjoy working on small details, you may want to skip this one.

SIZE

8 cm (3 1/8”) from head to toe, 12 cm (4 3/4") including straight ears, when crocheted with DK weight yarn and a 2,50 mm hook.

Tip! You can use the same pattern to make smaller or larger toys by using finer or bulkier yarn. Pick a crochet hook at least a size smaller than suggested on the yarn label, the smaller the better. You may also need to adjust the size of the safety eyes.

Tip! Sew the ears to the head, embroider the nose and add any embellishments before you sew the head to the body - this way you can fasten all yarn tails securely with a knot under the head.
