Easter bunny egg: the pattern

Hello sweeties,

This is today, as promised, how to crochet your little bunny egg ! It is very simple and easy and I’ll try my best to make my explanations clear ;)

First, you have to choose your yarn and a crochet hook a little smaller then the one suggested on your yarn…to have a neat look and tight stitches….so the stuffing won’t appear between the stitches…

I made my bunny with a 100% acrylic yarn and choose a 3.5 mm crochet hook instead of the 4.5mm suggested on the yarn…

I’ll explain here the pattern using the U.K terms…Remember a dc in the U.K terms means a sc in the U.S terms ans a “maille serree” in the French terms…a “2-st dc decrease” means in french: 2 mailles serrees tirees ensemble…

The pattern is made mostly with dc…

The bunny is made with: one body-egg, 2 ears and one tail…

So? Are you readyyyyyyyyyyyy? let’s make it!

Let’s begin first with the body-egg part:

Round1: In a circle made with 4ch, crochet 10 dc.

Rnd2: make 2dc on every stitch of the previous round: that means 20 dc

Rnd3: 20dc

Rnd4: 30 dc (crochet one dc, 2dc, one dc, 2dc etc on every stitch of the previous round)

Rnd5 to Rnd11: 30dc (7 rounds of 30dc each)

Now, you have to begin the “decreasing” part:

Round12: 24 dc (1dc, 1dc, 1dc, 2-st dc decrease, 1dc, 1dc, 1dc, 2-st dc decrease, etc etc on every stitch of the previous rnd)

Rnd13: 24 dc

Rnd14: 18 dc  (1dc, 1dc, 2-st dc decrease, 1dc, 1dc, 2-st dc decrease, etc etc on every stitch of the previous round)

Rnd:15 18 dc

Rnd16: 15 dc (1dc, 1dc, 1dc, 1dc, 2-st dc decrease, 1dc, 1dc, 1dc, 1dc, 2-st dc decrease, etc etc on every stitch of the previous rnd)

Rnd17: 15 dc

Stuff here your egg!

Rnd18: 12 dc (1dc, 1dc, 1dc, 2-st dc decrease, 1dc, 1dc, 1dc, 2-st dc decrease, etc etc on every stitch of the previous rnd)

Rnd19: 6 dc (2-st dc decrease, 2-st dc decrease, etc etc)

Sew some stitches to close your egg!

You’ve got now an Easter egg…You can just make Easter eggs following the pattern above …Colorful, striped eggs etc

or you can continue to make your little bunny ;)

The Ears:

The ears are worked in rows. To make an ear:

Row1: Crochet on a row of 6ch, 6 dc

And continue following the graph below until row11:

You’ve got an ear ! Make another one!

You still have the tail to make and all the body parts of your little bunny will be ready :)

The tail: Worked in rounds.

Round 1: In a circle made of 3ch, crochet 6 dc.

Rnd2: 9 dc (1dc, 2dc, 1dc, 2dc on each stitch of the previous round)

Rnd3 and 4: 9 dc.

The tail is done! Your little bunny is almost ready…

You have just to sew all its parts together…

Fold in two each ear before sewing it to the body…

Sew two eyes, or use beads or glue ready-craft-eyes …

Sew the nose…

Stuff a little the tail before sewing it to the back of the body…

Your Easter bunny egg is ready :)

Happy crocheting my friend!
