Bunny body: Make an egg in white, following Crochet Easter Egg Pattern.
Ears (make 2):
Make a magic ring
R1: 5 sc into ring (5 sts). Work in rounds
R2: *2sc in ea st*, repeat * to * around (10 st)
R3-9: sc around (10 st)
R10: *sc in next 3, sc 2 tog, repeat from * once. Sl st in next st and fasten off, leaving a long strand for sewing. (8 st)
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.
Add the cute Crochet Easter Egg Bunny to the Crochet Easter Basket as a finishing touch!
