This little cutie is much easier than it looks, making it a great first-time amigurumi project. This bunny is made in one piece with very minimal seaming and can be made in various sizes just by changing yarn and hook size. Its simple construction even allows you to work this up at a very small scale, using fingering weight yarn and a tiny hook.

For rounds 10-14: you only need to work the 2 uncounted stitches to shift beginning of rounds to the center back after
completing Rnd 14- not at the end of each of these Rnds. Also- when creating the gathering threads that form the head/ears (from the rectangle), you are not sewing anything together- you are merely making a gathering stitch line (through one layer of fabric). It is a running stitch that goes from center back at slit opening, up to the center top of last row worked, and then back down on the other side ending at the center back slit again.

Finished Measurements
Size varies according to yarn weight used. Honey-Bunny measures approximately 4.75“ long (excluding tail) when using worsted weight yarn, 4” long for sport weight yarn, and 2.5” long for fingering weight yarn.

• Approximately 60 yds worsted weight yarn, or 55 yds of sport weight yarn, or 40 yds fingering weight, preferably wool or acrylic for body (MC)
• Approximately 8 yds (or less) of white or light-colored yarn for tail pom-pom (CC) similar in weight/thickness to yarn used for head/body (I used worsted weight yarn for the worsted weight and sport weight bunnies, and sport weight for the fingering weight bunny.)
• US G 4.0mm crochet hook for worsted weight or size D 3.25mm crochet hook for sport weight or size B 2.25mm crochet hook for fingering weight, or size needed to obtain gauge
• Yarn Needle
• Removable stitch markers
• Fiberfill or your preferred stuffing material
• 2 black safety eyes (8mm for worsted weight, 6mm for sport weight, or 5mm for fingering weight)
• A small amount of pink (or tan) and black embroidery floss and embroidery needle to create
• Small piece of cardboard for making pom-pom (1.5” 4 cm wide for sport or worsted weight
bunny, or 1” 2.5 cm for fingering weight bunny)
