The Amigurumi Rabbit in Pink Dress will help you to create a crochet toy with a lot of cute details. This lovely amigurumi bunny is an ideal Easter gift for kids or for those who’re young at heart!

The pattern is very difficult. Therefore, advanced skill level is designed for crochet machines. Therefore, it is not recommended to start if you are a beginner.

Supplies:

  • Fine (4 ply) yarn — Yarnart Jeans (55% cotton, 45% acrylic; 160 m / 50 g)
  • 2.0 mm crochet hook by Tulip
  • 10 mm safety eyes
  • Pink embroidery floss for nose
  • Fiberfill for stuffing
  • Some wire for arms (optional)
  • Two buttons for shoes
  • Long large eye needles

The finished crochet bunny is about 22 cm (8.7”) tall without ears, and 31 cm (12”) with ears. The size of the toy depends on the yarn thickness, crochet hook and tightness of stitches. If you use thicker yarn, your bunny will be bigger.

Skill level: advanced

Find Rnd 15 on the muzzle. Then find 4 sc between the increases. This is the center of the muzzle. Take it into account when placing the eyes.

Insert safety eyes between Rnd 14 and Rnd 15, at 10 st in between the eyes. Don’t fasten the eyes with caps, as they can prevent from making muzzle indents. You will secure the eyes with a drop of crystal glue when the indents are done.
