Of all the crafts and hobbies that I've ever taken on, crochet has definitely been one that stuck with me the longest.

I was first exposed to the art of amigurumi through a gift that my husband and I received for our wedding. It was a pair of crocheted bunnies in wedding attire! I thought they were the most adorable things and instantly became a fan of amigurumi and crochet.

I wanted to learn how to crochet. Luckily, my mom knew how. However, at the time I asked her, she had not picked up a crochet hook in years, possibly even decades.

I remember her telling me the last time she crocheted anything was when she made over a hundred of these mini baskets for her wedding as wedding favors (which was 30+ years ago).

I was born in the year of the rabbit, so I have a natural fondness for bunnies. BB happens to love bunnies too and carries around her bunny security blanket everywhere she goes.

I began searching for an amigurumi bunny crochet pattern and finally came across the Spring Bunny pattern designed by All About Ami.

While I love making amigurumis, my biggest annoyance was sewing the parts together. I enjoyed the repetitive movements of crocheting much more as I found it very therapeutic.

It wasn't until I read more and more crochet blogs that I discovered that I was not alone and that many crochet artists disliked the sewing step of amigurumis.

After finishing my own amigurumi bunny using All About Ami's spring bunny pattern, I decided to make some modifications. I want to reduce as much work as possible when it comes to sewing my amigurumi bunny pieces together.

So I created a crochet pattern where the head and body as one piece to minimize the amount of sewing that I have to do. In addition to that, I also adjusted the size of the head as well as the ears.

This crochet bunny pattern is great for beginners making their first amigurumi project. It is easy to follow and would make some wonderful gifts for Easter, a teacher, a new baby, or any other occasion in between!!

how come my body is so small

Juli Anne said...

I don't know how small is small. But the body is smaller than the head.

MariaB said...

What round should I add in the safety eyes?

Juli Anne said...

When I wrote this pattern, I was still very much a beginner. So I didn't write down a recommendation of which rows to add the safety eyes and how far apart. It's basically up to you where you would like it.

I started crocheting about 3 weeks ago, and this was my first time following a new pattern just from written instructions. Turned out SUPER cute! Thank you for the clear directions. <3
