I’m in love with this Crochet Easter Egg Bunny. I seriously could put him on my desk and look at him all day long. It makes me smile every time. What a way to welcome in spring!There are so many things to love about this cutie pie crochet egg bunny. I love the sweet pastel pink nose against the white and bright yarn. And the hint of pink in the ears makes me smile! The bunny egg could also be dressed up with the little flowers or bow tie from the Peas in A Pod Get Married pattern too. Put one at a jaunty angle by an ear or even at the neck. So, so cute!
Plus the Crochet Easter Egg Bunny makes a perfect set with some solid or striped eggs from the crochet Easter Egg Pattern nestled in the darling crochet Easter basket to hold all the goodness! And if you really want to go all out, make Bernadette Bunny. I mean, let’s get serious now, who DOESN’T need a crochet Easter Egg bunny in their life?
A Crochet Easter Egg Bunny is also a perfect introduction to making amigurumi! You can practice the magic ring to start and the best amigurumi finish for a perfect finish. And work on your stuffing technique, facial features and sewing on pieces—all in one simple project!

Fold ear in half and sew bottom closed. Then, using same strand of yarn, sew to top of head.
Repeat for 2nd ear.
Sew on button eyes between rows 5 & 6 of egg, or alternatively, use embroidery floss and a French knot to sew on eyes.
Referring to photo for placement, embroider a satin stitch nose over row 7 of egg.
If desired, add pink to inside of bunny ear using pink blush (or pink eyeshadow) and a brush. I purchased pink eyeshadow and a brush from the dollar store just to use on crochet dolls and amigurumi. When you’re done, just add the adorable crochet easter bunny to the basket along with the crocheted eggs and all is right with the world!
