Crochet Easter Bunny Pattern

Notes:
Written in US terms.
I recommend using a row counter to keep track of your rows.
All increases and decreases are done in the first or last stitch of the row.
The fold of the bunny ear is worked separately then joined when working the rest of the folded ear.

Crocheting it all Together

Once you have made your two crochet bunny sides. Lay one on top of the other. Using your hook and yarn pick any stitch and slip stitch to both sides at once.

Chain one and begin to single crochet around the whole project. Remember that you are working through both sides of the Easter bunny at a time. You will work one single crochet into the side of each row and into the top or bottom of each row, where they are exposed.

Pom Pom for the Bunny Tail

To add a cute tail to the bunny I just sewed on a pom pom. I also made a bow from ribbon or lace and sewed that on as well.

Attach the pom pom to your crochet Easter bunny and it is complete.
