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.

And here's a fun fact: did you know that in parts of Canada, a hooded sweatshirt or a hoodie is referred to as a "bunny hug"? What a coincidence, right?!

BB also loves bunnies. She has a bunny lovey that she loves carrying 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 you can see from the photos that the hood comes off (like a real hoodie)!

Recently, I got the opportunity to remake my hoodie amigurumi bunny using some bulky weight yarn, which resulted in a cuddle-sized amigurumi bunny! 

I applied some new crochet techniques that I've learned along the way such as the half-colour change technique to help create a cleaner colour change between two rows (i.e. the body and the hoodie colour).

In this version, I didn't end up adding a T-nose but I thought that she still looked quite cute! Here's a photo of the previous version. Which one do you prefer?

Notes

  • In the newer version of the amigurumi hoodie bunny, I used a method called "Yarn Under Single Crochet". This technique makes the stitches tighter and more aligned. You can tell when someone is using this method when the stitches look like little Xs.
  • In the newer version, I also used the half-colour change technique in order to achieve cleaner lines when changing colours from one row to another.
  • You can make this amigurumi bunny with any weight yarn you like as long as you consistently use the same yarn weight throughout the pattern. For example, I used bulky weight yarn for my latest remake.

  • ch - chain
  • sc - single crochet

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 the 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 the 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!
