This friendly Bunny is waiting for you to make him up using the free Amigurumi pattern from Klein Konijntje. The pattern is in Dutch but Google’s built-in Chrome translator makes it easy to read. This tiny bunny measures 10 cm tall (approximately 4″ tall) and requires a D (3 mm) crochet hook. Use a brush to create the soft fur affect. Embroider the face with embroidery floss and color the cheeks red with a little blush and your bunny is ready to hop down the bunny trail.
What is the Easter bunny without eggs? These paper Easter eggs have punched edges and crocheted around the edges. Use bright colored and decorative paper to make your egg shape, glue the paper on both sides of cardboard and then punch holes all around the edges. Using a 1/4″ hole punch gives the holes a clean look instead of just punching holes using a yarn needle. Then you will crochet a scalloped design to complete your Easter egg DIY project. Hang them from a ribbon or yarn tail.
