Bunny Amigurumi

© Amanda Bryant 2019

Materials Used:

Caron Simply Soft 100% Acrylic Medium (“4”) weight yarn: Color White (less than one skein)

Size G-6 4 mm hook

Stitch marker (to note end/beg of rounds)

Polyester Fiberfill

1 pair 9 mm Plastic safety eyes

Yarn needle

A small amount of pink embroidery thread for the nose and mouth

Gauge-

Not important, just make sure stitches are really close together so the stuffing doesn’t pop through

Finished Measurements:

Height- 11” tall (about 14” with the ears)

Abbreviations Used (American Terminology):

Ch- chain

Sc- single crochet

Sc2tog- single crochet 2 stitches together

Special Notes:

  1. The bunny parts are worked in one continuous spiral (except for the soles of the feet), there are no joins. Use a stitch marker to note where your rounds end/begin.
  2. The bunny consists of the head, the body, 2 ears, 2 arms, 2 legs and a tail, all made separately then sewn together.
  3. I used the Invisible Decrease technique (on all bunny parts except for the soles of the feet), however, the instructions are written as “sc2tog”. Use whichever technique you prefer. If you are not familiar with the technique, there are plenty of tutorials online, one of which is https://www.allaboutami.com/invisibledecrease/
  4. UPDATE: Round 6 of the arm has been edited. It used to read “repeat from * 3 more times”. It now reads to repeat 2 more times.

**Before closing the hole any further, take a moment to place the safety eyes. I placed mine in between Rounds 10 and 11, and about 1 ½” apart. Make sure they are placed exactly where you want them to be before you snap the backing onto the post of the eyes. You can also try stuffing the head first and then placing the eyes, and then unstuff the head and snap the backings on. Once the eyes are completely placed and snapped, (re)stuff the head and continue closing up the hole.

Round 25- sc2tog over the first 2 sc, make 1 sc in each of the next 2 sc, *sc2tog over the next 2 sc, make 1 sc in each of the next 2 sc, repeat from * around (18 sc)

**Continue to stuff before completely closing

Round 26- sc2tog over the first 2 sc, make 1 sc in the next sc, *sc2tog over the next 2 sc, make 1 sc in the next sc, repeat from * around (12 sc)

Round 27- sc2tog around (6 sc)

Fasten off, leaving a long tail. Using a yarn needle, weave the yarn tail through the last 6 sc, pull tightly to close up the hole, secure with a knot and hide the yarn tail inside the head.

Ears (make 2)-

Starting at the tip of the ears, ch 2

Round 1- in the second ch from the hook, make 6 sc

Round 2- sc in each sc around (6 sc)

Round 3- make 2 sc in each sc around (12 sc)

Round 4- sc in each sc around (12 sc)

Round 5- make 2 sc in the first sc, make 1 sc in the next sc, *make 2 sc in the next sc, make 1 sc in the next sc, repeat from * around (18 sc)

Round 6- 20- sc in each sc around (18 sc)

Fasten off, leaving a long tail for sewing the ear to the head. DO NOT stuff the ears.

To fasten the ears to the head, first pinch the open (bottom) of the ear closed. Using the long yarn tail, sew this pinched edge closed (through all 4 thicknesses). Next, sew the ears onto each side of the top of the head, about in between rounds 3 and 4. After both ears are attached, weave yarn tails down through the middle of the head and out the bottom hole of the head. Pull the yarn tails tightly and tie them together with a double knot. This will help the ears to not flop over.

Legs (make 2):

Starting at the sole of the foot, ch 9

Row 1- make 1 sc in the second ch from the hook, then make 1 sc in each of the next 7 ch across, ch 1, turn (8 sc)

Rows 2-5 – make 1 sc in each sc across, ch 1, turn (8 sc)

Row 6- sc2tog over the first 2 sc, make 1 sc in each of the next 4 sc, sc2tog over the last 2 sc, ch 1, turn (6 sc)

Rows 7-9 – make 1 sc in each sc across, ch 1, turn (6 sc)

Row 10- sc2tog over the first 2 sc, make 1 sc in each of the next 2 sc, sc2tog over the last 2 sc, ch 1, turn (4 sc)

Now the foot begins, working in rounds (make sure you mark the first sc with your stitch marker!):

Round 1- make 1 sc in each of the 4 sc across the last row, turn work to begin rounds and make 10 sc down the side edges of Rows 10 through 1, make 1 sc in each of the 8 unused loops of the foundation ch, and then make 10 sc up the side edges of Rows 1 through 10 (do not join) (32 sc)

Next- make 1 sc in each of the next 2 sc (the next sc will now begin the next round- be sure to re-place your stitch marker in the next sc you make!)

Beginning the upper portion of the foot now:

Rounds 2-3 –  make 1 sc in each sc around (32 sc)

Round 4- make 1 sc in each of the first 11 sc, (sc2tog over the next 2 sc) twice, make 1 sc in each of the next 4 sc, (sc2tog over the next 2 sc) twice, make 1 sc in each of the last 9 sc (28 sc)

Round 5- make 1 sc in each of the first 10 sc, (sc2tog over the next 2 sc) twice, make 1 sc in each of the next 2 sc, (sc2tog over the next 2 sc) twice, make 1 sc in each of the last 8 sc (24 sc)

Round 6- make 1 sc in each of the first 9 sc, (sc2tog over the next 2 sc) four times, make 1 sc in each of the last 7 sc (20 sc)

Round 7- make 1 sc in each of the first 7 sc, (sc2tog over the next 2 sc) four times, make 1 sc in each of the last 5 sc (16 sc)

Stuff the foot now, and stuff the leg as work progresses.

Rounds 8-15 – make 1 sc in each sc around (16 sc)

Fasten off, leaving a long yarn tail for sewing leg to the body.

Using a safety pin or stitch marker, mark the center bottom of the body. This will help you with the placement of the legs. Sew the legs to each side of the bottom of the body.

Arms (make 2):

Starting at the hand, ch 2

Round 1- in the second ch from the hook, make 6 sc

Round 2- make 2 sc in each sc around (12 sc)

Round 3- make 2 sc in the first sc, make 1 sc in the next sc, *make 2 sc in the next sc, make 1 sc in the next sc, repeat from * around (18 sc)

Rounds 4-5- make 1 sc in each sc around (18 sc)

Round 6- sc2tog over the first 2 sc, make 1 sc in the next sc, *sc2tog over the next 2 sc, make 1 sc in the next sc, repeat from * 2 more times, make 1 sc in each of the last 6 sc (14 sc)

Stuff the hand, and then continue to stuff the arm as work progresses

Rounds 7- 24- make 1 sc in each sc around (14 sc)

Fasten off, leaving a long yarn tail for sewing arm to the body.

Next, using your yarn needle and the long yarn tail, sew the open end of the arm closed flat. Make sure that before you sew it closed, the flat seam will line up with the shaping of the hand. If it doesn’t, just make a few stitches over to the side of the arm, and then sew across the opening. Then, sew the arms to the sides of the bunny, at about 3 rounds below the joining of the neck to the head.

Tail:

Make a small pom pom and sew it to the backside of the bunny. (I wrapped the yarn around 3 of my fingers, about 40 times).

Finishing off:

Lastly, sew a mouth and nose onto the face using embroidery thread.
