Ollie Loop’s Spring Bunnies! Free Crochet Pattern

I’m so happy to present you with Ollie Loop’s FIRST crochet pattern!! I had a customer request some bunnies and was not able to find a pattern that worked up quite like I wanted. I decided to try to work on my own design and I was able to create these adorable bunnies!!

I’m excited to share this FREE pattern with all my crochet friends!

The bunnies are made up quick with minimal, to no weaving in ends. Yes, you read that correct. These bunnies are not only super easy and quick to create, but they’re STRESS FREE too!! I call that a win/win!

For these bunnies I used Red Heart Super Saver for all except the green which is Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice, but you are welcome to use any worsted weight yarn to work up your bunnies!

Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice – This one was a leftover in my stash and I’m not 100% on the name. Red Heart Super Saver in Spring Green comes close to the shade.

GAUGE:

No reason for gauge. (Stress Free, remember?)

PATTERN:

We begin at the bottom of the bunny. Start with a magic ring.

1. Ch 1, 6 sc in ring. Sl St to first sc. (6)

2. Ch 1, Work 2 sc in each sc around, Sl St to first sc. (12)

3. Ch 1, [Sc in next sc, 2 sc in next sc] 6 times, Sl St to first sc. (18)

4. Ch 1, [Sc in next 2 sc, 2 sc in next sc] 6 times, Sl St to first sc. (24)

5. Ch 1, [Sc in next 3 sc, 2 sc in next sc] 6 times, Sl St to first sc. (30)

6. Ch 1, Sc in each sc around, Sl St to first sc. (30)

7. Ch 1, Sc in each sc around, Sl St to first sc. (30)

8. Ch 1, Sc in each sc around, Sl St to first sc. (30)

9. Ch 1, Sc in each sc around, Sl St to first sc. (30)

10. Ch 1, [Sc in next 3 sc, sc2tog] 6 times, Sl St to first sc. (24)

11. Ch 1, [Sc in next 2 sc, sc2tog] 6 times, Sl St to first sc. (18)

12. Ch 1, [Sc in next 1 sc, sc2tog] 6 times, Sl St to first sc. (12)

Start stuffing the body. Next we start to work the next part which is the bunnies head.

13. Ch 1, Work 2 sc in each sc around, Sl St to first sc. (24)

14. Ch 1, Sc in each sc around, Sl St to first sc. (24)

15. Ch 1, Sc in each sc around, Sl St to first sc. (24)

16. Ch 1, Sc in each sc around, Sl St to first sc. (24)

17. Ch 1, Sc in each sc around, Sl St to first sc. (24)

18. Ch 1, [Sc in next 2 sc, sc2tog] 6 times, Sl St to first sc. (18)

19. Ch 1, [Sc in next 1 sc, sc2tog] 6 times, Sl St to first sc. (12)

Start stuffing the bunnies head and then begin on first ear. You may want to add bunnies face at this point also. I embroidered french knots for a nose and eyes. But feel free to use a technique you are comfortable with or use small beads or shank eyes.

EAR:

1. Sc in first 6 stitches leaving the rest unworked. (6)

Now this part might be tricky for some, but it’s all part of the ‘Stress Free No Weaving’ I promised you! 😉 Instead of working a slip stitch to end this round, we’re going to use a sc. This will help close the gap between the bunnies ears and you won’t need to weave to close. Make sure to skip this stitch in the next round! It’s not counted as a stitch but instead as a slip stitch.

You can instead skip this step and use your beginning string for the next ear to weave the hole closed.

2. Ch 1, [Sc in next sc, 2 sc in next sc] 6 times, Sl St to first sc. (9)

3. Ch 1, Sc in each sc around, Sl St to first sc. (9)

4. Ch 1, [Sc in next 2 sc, 2 sc in next sc] 6 times, Sl St to first sc. (12)

5. Ch 1, Sc in each sc around, Sl St to first sc. (12)

6. Ch 1, Sc in each sc around, Sl St to first sc. (12)

STOP AND STUFF EAR.

7. Ch 1, [Sc in next 2 sc, sc2tog] 6 times, Sl St to first sc. (9)

8. Ch 1, [Sc in next 1 sc, sc2tog] 6 times, Sl St to first sc. (6)

9. Ch 1, [Sc2tog] 3 times, Sl St to first sc. (3)

Fasten Off.

Next we will begin the other ear. Connect yarn to unworked stitch and sc around the unworked stitches. 6 total. Repeat with connecting last stitch made to first stitch made with a sc.

Continue with the pattern for the first ear for the second ear.

Weave ends into body for a ‘Stress Free’ project!!
