Amigurumi Bunny General Steps

Keep scrolling for the full instructions, but here is how this pattern works:

  1. Start with the arms and ears: you’ll crochet them separately and set aside to attach with the crochet hook as you go. 
  2. Create the legs and join them: you’ll make two identical legs and join them with three chains. 
  3. Make the body and attach the arms: crochet big rounds around both legs and the chains you just created and attach the arms as you go.
  4. Crochet the head and attach the ears: you will transition from the body to the head without cutting the yarn and attach the years as you go. In this step, you’ll embroider the facial features as well.
  5. Make the tail, the bow and finish off: the tail and bow are the last steps. You’ll create a pompom and attach the tail to the bunny’s bottom.

Stitches and Techniques 

This simple Amigurumi bunny pattern was created with very basic stitches. However, if you have never crocheted an animal before, please make sure you can follow instructions with these skills:

  • Magic Circle (mc): this is the very first step to make a crochet animal or doll. A magic circle is ideal because you can cinch it tight to prevent a hole in the beginning of your project.
  • Single Crochet Stitch (sc): I used the yarn under single crochet stitch, which is created by simply placing your yarn under the hook when pulling up a loop. The result is an “x” looking stitch on the right side.
  • Single Crochet Increase (inc): when you see this abbreviation in a pattern, it means you will create two single crochet stitches in next stitch.
  • Single Crochet Decrease (dec): it is recommended that you use the invisible decrease for Amigurumi.
  • Basic embroidery: you will create the bunny’s face features with very simple embroidery. Which you can achieve with a tapestry needle and scraps of yarn or thread. 
  • Other skills you will need: please make sure you’re also comfortable with fastening off, adding stuffing fiber to shape the bunny well, using a pompom maker to make the tail, and attach limbs with the crochet hook as you go.

Pattern Instructions

Amigurumi Bunny

Without any further ado, let’s get your Amigurumi bunny started! Please make sure you go through the material list, yarn information and pattern notes. That way, you can have an amazing experience crocheting your cute Amigurumi bunny.

Total Time: 6 hours

  1. Ears (make 2)

    Pink yarn

    Making both ears is the first step for this Amigurumi bunny pattern. They are crocheted bottom up and there is no need to stuff them.

    Rnd1: 6 sc in a mc
    Rnd2: (inc) 6 times. [12]
    Rnd3: (inc, sc in next st) 6 times. [18]
    Rnd4: sc around. [18]
    Rnd5: (inc, sc in next 2 sts) 6 times. [24]
    Rnd6: sc around. [24]
    Rnd7: (inc, sc in next 3 sts) 6 times. [30]
    Rnd8: sc around. [30]
    Rnd9: (inc, sc in next 4 sts) 6 times. [36]
    Rnd10-30: sc around. [36]
    Rnd31: (dec, sc in next 4 sts) 6 times. [30]
    Rnd32-33: sc around. [30]
    Rnd34: (dec, sc in next 3 sts) 6 times. [24]
    Rnd35-36: sc around. [24]
    Rnd37: (dec, sc in next 2 sts) 6 times. [18]
    Rnd38-39: sc around. [18]
    Rnd40: (dec, sc in next st) 6 times. [12]
    Rnd41-42: sc around. [12]

    FO. Cut the yarn. Leave them open. Set aside. Apply makeup blush to your Amigurumi bunny’s inner ears or beeswax crayon (optional), I have a quick video on Facebook here showing how I do it.

  2. Arms (make 2)

    Pink yarn

    Stuff the arms as you go, but not all the way up, leave about 1” (2.5 cm) of the upper arms empty.

    Rnd1: 6 sc in a mc
    Rnd2: (inc) 6 times. [12]
    Rnd3: (inc, sc in next st) 6 times. [18]
    Rnd4: (inc, sc in next 5 sts) 3 times. [21]
    Rnd5-21: sc around. [21]
    Rnd22: (dec, sc in next 5 sts) 3 times. [18]
    Rnd23: (dec, sc in next 4 sts) 3 times. [15]

    FO. Cut the Yarn. Leave them open. Set aside. I have a free video on YouTube here with tips on stuffing Amigurumi that you may find helpful while you’re working this Amigurumi bunny.

  3. Legs (make 2)

    Pink yarn and crochet hook

    Rnd1: 6 sc in a mc
    Rnd2: (inc) 6 times. [12]
    Rnd3: (inc, sc in next st) 6 times. [18]
    Rnd4: sc around. [18]
    Rnd5: (inc, sc in next 2 sts) 6 times. [24]
    Rnd6-10: sc around. [24]

    FO. Cut the yarn for the first leg only, leaving a long tail (about 12” / 30 cm to stitch the crotch later in case there are holes remaining from the joining. Next, you’ll attach the legs together and make big rounds for the Amigurumi bunny’s body.

    Note: the 3 chains you’ll do in this next step will be the “bridge” that connects both legs together. 
    Rnd11: When you’re done with leg# 2, ch 3 and sc st in any st of last round in leg# 1. Next, place the st marker in that st to make it the first st in round 11. Then, sc in next 23 sts in leg 1, sc in top lop of next 3 chs, sc in next 24 sts around leg 2, sc in the opposite loops of next 3 chs. [54]
    Do not cut the yarn. 

  4. Body

    Pink yarn and crochet hook

    Now, that the legs are attached, you will crochet big rounds around the to make the Amigurumi bunny’s torso. After you have few rounds crocheted, check the crotch to see it needs some stitching if there are holes left.

    Rnd12: *sc in next 24 sts, (inc) 3 times, rep from the * one more time. [60]
    Rnd13: *sc in next 24 sts, (inc, sc) 3 times, rep from the * one more time. [66]
    Rnd14-28: sc around. [66] 
    Rnd29: (dec, sc in next 9 sts) 6 times. [60]
    Rnd30: sc around.[60]
    Rnd31: (dec, sc in next 8 sts) 6 times. [54]
    Rnd32: sc around. [54]
    Rnd33: (dec, sc in next 7 sts) 6 times. [48]
    Rnd34-36: sc around. [48]
    Rnd37: (dec, sc in next 6 sts) 6 times. [42]
    Rnd38-39: sc around. [42] 
    Rnd40: (dec, sc in next 5 sts) 6 times. [36]
    Do not cut the yarn yet. 

  5. Attach the arms

    Pink yarn crochet hook

    Rnd41-42: sc around. Attach the arms in round 41. [36]
    The arms should be placed one on each side of the Amigurumi bunny on round 41, aligned with the hips.
    First, squeeze the top opening of one of the arms and attach it with sts 6 to 12 as you go.
    Then, do the same with the second arm with sts 24 to 30. Make sure you insert the hook in all 3 layers of stitches. Do not cut the yarn.

  6. Head

    a half done crochet animal

    Rnd43: (inc, sc in next 5 sts) 6 times. [42]
    Rnd44: (inc, sc in next 6 sts) 6 times. [48]
    Rnd45: (inc, sc in next 7 sts) 6 times. [54]
    Rnd46: (inc, sc in next 8 sts) 6 times. [60]
    Rnd47: (inc, sc in next 9 sts) 6 times. [66]

    Do not cut the yarn. When you’re done with round 58 in next step, it will be a good time to place the eyes. Place them between rounds 54 and 55 centered on the face (11 sts apart).

    Tip: For better placement, I recommend attaching the eyes to your Amigurumi bunny before you stuff the head. Squeeze the head and use stitch markers to mark the sts in the far ends and the one in the center. In addition, you can also embroider the nose and nozzle one row below the eyes, or you can wait until after you finish the head. 

    Rnd48-61: sc around. [66]
    Rnd62: (dec, sc in next 9 sts) 6 times. [60]
    Do not cut the yarn.

  7. Attach the ears and finish the head

    Pink yarn

    Rnd63: (dec, sc in next 8 sts) 6 times. Attach both ears in this round using the same technique used for the arms with sts 20 to 25 and sts 41 to 46. [54]

    Tip: if you find it tricky to decrease while attaching the ears, move the decrease forward to the next 2 sts right after you place the ear. As long the total st count is right, it’s ok.
    Rnd64: (dec, sc in next 7 sts) 6 times. [48]
    Rnd65: (dec, sc in next 6 sts) 6 times. [42]
    Rnd66: (dec, sc in next 5 sts) 6 times. [36]
    Rnd67: (dec, sc in next 4 sts) 6 times. [30]
    Rnd68: (dec, sc in next 3 sts) 6 times. [24]
    Rnd69: (dec, sc in next 2 sts) 6 times. [18]
    Rnd70: (dec, sc in next st) 6 times. [12]
    Rnd71: dec 6 times. [6]

    FO. Cut the yarn. Embroider your Amigurumi bunny’s eyebrows, two rounds above the eyes, 5 stitches long in an angle (see one of the close-up photos for reference).

  8. Tail

    an yarn pompom maker

    Using a pompom maker for the tail is optional. But I have one and thought it was the easiest way to create a fluffy tail with the same yarn I used to make this Amigurumi bunny. But feel free to use any other method. Or maybe a store-bought pompom if you prefer.

    Here is how you make it:

    1. First, create the pompom, by wrapping the yarn in both sides of the pompom maker to approximately 1” (2.5 cm) thick. 
    2. Next, tie it off with a doubled strand of the same yarn and release from the pompom maker. 
    3. Then, trim it with scissors.
    4. Lastly, use the yarn tail to attach the pompom to the bunny’s bottom. You’ll probably need to use the tapestry needle to stitch it a few times.

  9. Hair bow (optional)

    a pink crochet bow

    I used this simple bow crochet pattern with a few changes. In case you need a tutorial with photos, you can go check that pattern out here on the blog. But here are the easy steps:

    1. Leave a tail of about 4” (10 cm) and crochet these sts in a mc:
    2. *ch 3, 5 treble (tr) sts, ch 3, sl st in the mc*, rep from the asterisk one more time.
    4. Cut the yarn leaving another long tail, about 10” (25 cm). Wrap that tail evenly around the center of the bow (about 8-10 times).
    5. Make a knot with the tails to secure it. Attach it to the top of your Amigurumi bunny’s ear.

Estimated Cost: 10.00 USD


  • Medium weight yarn (#4) cotton yarn.


  • 3.50 mm (US E) crochet hook, Stuffing tool (optional), scissors, tool for placing safety eyes (optional), more above.

Materials: 8mm safety eyes, Stuffing fiber, tapestry needle, stitch markers. The complete list is above.

I hope you’ve enjoyed the process of crocheting your adorable Amigurumi bunny. And remember, the more you practice, the better your work will look.

Amigurumi Bunny


Are Amigurumi bunnies easy for beginners?

Yes! If you know how to single crochet and are comfortable with the basics of Amigurumi, you certainly can crochet a bunny. Please make sure you read the list of stitches and skills you’ll need.

Can I use a different yarn?

Absolutely! Assuming you’re happy with your bunny being smaller or larger, feel free to use any yarn fiber or yarn weight you like. I haven’t tried, but I am sure this Amigurumi bunny will look so adorable with chenille yarn.

What’s the best hook size to crochet a bunny?

Between 3.5 and 4.00 mm are the size range I recommend for Amigurumi. And the reason why you need a smaller crochet hook is because you need to crochet tight stitches to avoid the fiber to show through the holes.

How long does it take to crochet a bunny?

Approximately 6 hours. This is how long it will take you to make this Amigurumi bunny. Ultimately, it depends on your skill level, but this bunny is small enough to even be made in less time if you’re a fast crocheter.
