Make a cute crochet Easter bunny garland for Easter! 😀
Aren’t they cute?
Because I prefer crochet charts to written instructions, I’ve made my first crochet diagram with Paint. Yay! 😀
If you prefer written instructions: Below you’ll also find written instructions with pictures.
- yarn in bunny colors * – I used a cotton linen blend
- white yarn
- crochet hook
* The crochet Easter bunnies are a great way to use up yarn scraps – I reused yarn from a crochet bag: I’ve already used part of the yarn for a crochet top.
The crochet bunnies are worked in the round. Crochet 4 chain stitches, form a ring with one slip stitch into the first chain stitch.
ROUND 1: Crochet 3 chain stitches and 16 half treble crochet stitches into the chain stitch ring.
Finish with one slip stitch into the third chain stitch.
ROUND 2: Crochet 3 chain stitches, one half treble crochet and one treble crochet into the third chain stitch of the last round. Crochet one treble and one half treble crochet stitch into the first half treble crochet of the last round.
To make the bunny ears: Chain 7, beginning to crochet into the third chain stitch: Crochet one half double crochet, two double crochet, one half double crochet and one single crochet.
Make another ear like the first bunny ear.
Slip stitch into the first half treble crochet of round 1 – and your crochet Easter bunny is finished! 😀
Hide the yarn ends.
Now you can add a mini pom pom bunny tail.
Use a square knot to tie the pom pom bunny tail to the crochet bunny.
To finish the crochet bunny garland: Crochet about 10 or 20 chain stitches, slip stitch into one bunny ear, make again 10 to 20 chain stitches and attach the next bunny.
