Welcome to my cutest pattern of the year so far! It was actually a suggestion by my macho bearded fiance, cute ideas come in all forms!? This crochet bunting pattern of bunnies is an adorable home decor accessory pattern. One on it’s own would also be lovely on the front of a card or something too. You can get the PDF download over on Ravelry.

I’m trying to get ahead with seasonally inspired projects and patterns this year for once in my life, and what better place to start than cute little bunny butts! What’s your favourite spring thing to make? I love wreaths and flowers, I think bunting is so cute in spring particularly, and you can’t go wrong with egg patterns if you have kiddos. Egg covers and baskets are quick wins for little ones too!
Let’s get going.
- Pom Poms for the tail
- Scissors and needle for finishing
Concentration level – Might be a little fiddly but achievable for crocheters of all experience.
Stitches used and abbreviations (USterms):

- Double Crochet (DC)
- Treble Crochet (TC)
- Slip Stitch (SC)
- Chain (CH)
- Stitch count will be in brackets at the end of each row where appropriate
- The pattern starts with the base body forming a circle of 4 rounds, then works upwards towards the ears

Weave in ends to finish.You may wish to stiffen your work with an iron or some starch spray to keep theshape and stop the yarn from curling. Add your pom pom tail.
