Crochet Easter Bunny Decor

Bunnies, bunnies everywhere. I actually made this crochet Easter bunny a few years ago and every year someone asks for the pattern. So here it is! The Easter Bunny cuddler, pillow, holiday decor piece. I truly do not know what to call this one, but I think you will love it.

Below you will find the complete pattern and instructional photos for this crochet Easter bunny. You will also find all the materials, stitches, gauge and sizing information. If you would like all of this in a nicely formatted printable format, you can purchase the Ad-Free Large Print PDF Pattern.

A Crochet Easter Bunny

Easter was my mother’s favorite holiday. A few years ago, to celebrate, I created several crochet patterns to decorate the house. I made this crochet Easter Bunny that I had hoped to put on a wreath. I also made the Easter egg cozies, the memory cross, and the plush Easter Egg and Carrot made from blanket yarn. Plus the cute Easter Gnome and Little Chick Candy Baskets.

Decorating for this holiday has always made me feel closer to my mother and I hope you also find some joy in this little crochet bunny.

This Crochet Easter bunny is sure to brighten your home this spring. Follow the simple free crochet pattern to make this cute little crochet bunny.
The original bunny from two years ago.

Making the Easter Bunny

This style of crochet is often called a cuddler or ragdoll. It is made from only single crochet, and uses increases and decreases to make the bunny shape. I have a tutorial on how to design your own simple shapes using just single crochet.

You will make two bunny shapes then single crochet around the edge working through both shapes to join the two. You will stuff the bunny just a little bit before you close it up. Just add a few extra details, like a bow and pom for the tail and your bunny will be ready to make your house fun and festive.

The Stitches Used (Plus Tips)

The one thing I love about cuddlers or ragdolls is that they only use single crochet. You will need to know how to increase and decrease with single crochet. All the increases nd decreases will happen in the first of last stitch.

This make this a very easy pattern to follow. The only thing I would recommend is to use a row counter. It can be a little easy to forget what row you are on and you will want to make sure both your bunnies ( you will make two sides) are exactly the same.

Purchase the Premium Ad-Free PDF Pattern (Completely Optional)

Below you will find the free pattern with all the instructional photos and videos needed to complete the pattern, but I am also aware that several of us like to crochet on the couch, in the car, or in bed with a print out of the pattern. This is why I also offer a nicely formatted ad-free large font PDF version of the pattern. You can print the pattern and take it on the go with you or tuck it into your project bag or basket.

I moved all the photos to the end of the PDF so you can reference them as you needed them and print just the pattern without using up as much ink. The Premium PDF version of the pattern can be purchased on Etsy.

Crocheting it all Together

Once you have made your two crochet bunny sides. Lay one on top of the other. Using your hook and yarn pick any stitch and slip stitch to both sides at once.

Chain one and begin to single crochet around the whole project. Remember that you are working through both sides of the Easter bunny at a time. You will work one single crochet into the side of each row and into the top or bottom of each row, where they are exposed.

Pom Pom for the Bunny Tail

To add a cute tail to the bunny I just sewed on a pom pom. I also made a bow from ribbon or lace and sewed that on as well.

Here is a wonderful video on how to make a pom pom with a pom pom maker. The video is my Sarah, the daughter of a friend of mine.

Attach the pom pom to your crochet Easter bunny and it is complete.
