Some Bunny in the Hood Crochet Pattern

Published On: May 18, 2018 | Updated on: 2022-04-19T06:13:18Z

I grew up in the era when hoodies were cool. Hoodies are pretty much my go-to items when I just want something to lounge around in.

Back in high school, I pretty much lived in my hoodies because I hated putting outfits together and fussing about what to wear.

I'm just going to confess now that I am no fashionista and that I have no sense of style.

I have an affinity for bunnies. In fact, I used to have a pet bunny! She was so soft and cuddly. Did I mention that BB also loves bunnies and has a bunny security blanket that she carries around with her everywhere?

I loved creating something that defined me, so that's when I came up with this amigurumi bunny wearing a hoodie.

I am very proud of this creation. And just so you know, you can take the hood off (like a real hoodie)!

Assembly


On the hood, you have two slits, these are for your bunny's ears. To line them up correctly, the ears should sit right on top of the head. I attached it right after the first round (photo 2)

Then, position your bunny's head by placing it inside the hood with the ears through the slits. Make sure that your bunny's eyes are facing outside.

Using the long strand that you left on the head, sew bottom of the head to the bottom of the hood (photo 7).

On the bottom of the hood where you sewed the head, you'll see yarn in Colour A but don't worry as this will be hidden once the body is attached.

Next, attach your tail to the body, as well as the arms and legs. And then attach the head along with the hood to the body.

If the head and body are attached properly, you should no longer be able to see Colour A yarn on the bottom of the hood. After that, you sew on the details of the bunny's face and then you're done!
