Amigurumi Eggster Bunny Free Pattern

Crochet Eggster Bunny

MATERIALS:

• Hook: 3.5mm crochet hook (US E-4 / UK 9)

• Yarn: Any worsted or light weight cotton yarn (I used approximately 70 meters of Monaco 4-ply acrylic yarn in offwhite color for the body, arms, feet and ears, 65 meters Gantsilyo Guru Milk Cotton Light yarn in pastel blue color for the clothing and some mustard color for the inside of ears). I also used some scrap mercerized cotton yarn to make crocheted buttons since I am toddler proofing but you can use colorful medium size buttons to decorate the button placket if you are making this for an older kid.

• Yarn needle

• Stitch marker (recommended)

• 18mm safety eyes

• Fiber fill/toy stuffing

ABBREVIATION/STITCHES:

• st(s) – stitch(es)

• sl st – slip stitch

• inc – increase = two single crochet stitches in the same stitch

• dec – decrease = crochet two stitches together using the invisible decrease method

• [sc, inc] n times – repeat the pattern between parentheses n times.

• (N sts) – number of stitches in a round after finishing round.

If you need guide with the stitches, you can always check my post about Basic Crochet TechniquesHERE.

NOTES:

– Finished eggster bunny is about 11 inches tall, including the ears. Any variations to hook size and yarn weight will result in a different sized piece.

– This project was made by crocheting in continuous spirals unless otherwise stated.

– Use stitch marker and continue to move to every beginning of a round.

– The pattern involves switching yarn colors, see illustration below on how to make your color transition cleaner:

Step 1: At the last stitch of a round, pull up a loop as if to make a single crochet in the old color (you should have two loops on your hook).

Step 2: Pull a loop through both loops on your hook using the new color. This completes your last stitch for the old color.

Step 3: Make 1 loose slip stitch in the first stitch of the next round (counted as a stitch).

Step 4: Continue the round as you would normally do.
