Bunny Rabbit Amigurumi Crochet Pattern

When meeting a newly born baby, one must always come bearing gifts. Seeing as I was out of frankincense, don’t know what myrrh is and I’m not all that biblical to start out with, I figured a cute little stuffie might be better. This little rabbit was made for Adam James and since the pattern is free it can be made for others now too.

This amigurumi was made with my usual worsted weight yarn and a 3.5mm hook. It works up to around 6 inches tall and is fairly quick to complete because of it’s size. If you wish to complete this without the sweater, ignore the colour change instructions.

Pattern Details
This pattern was made with a 3.5mm hook going through both loops and worked in a continuous spiral except for where otherwise is stated. I used a 3.5mm hook and worsted weight cotton yarn. The arms, ears and carrots should not be stuffed.
