Best Yarns for Crochet Bunnies
Acrylic and cotton yarns are the most used for crochet animals. Ultimately, the kind of yarn depends on whom and what your crochet bunnies are for. As for the thickness, anything between DK/Light Worsted (#3) and Bulky (#5) will work fine for most projects.
Here are a few of my favorite yarns:
- 24/7 Mercerized Cotton by Lion Brand – great for Amigurumi, it’s durable and has amazing stitch definition.
- Red Heart Super Saver – affordable and great quality 100% acrylic yarn, I’ve used for Amigurumi before, and I loved it.
- I Love This Yarn by Hobby Lobby – another great 100% acrylic option. It’s so soft, and it’s my go-to yarn for many projects.
Skills and Techniques for Crochet Bunnies
The Amigurumi technique, which requires single crochet stitches in continuous rounds, is what most patterns in this list call for. But it’s always good to check the pattern instructions to make sure you’re familiar with the techniques.
Here are the most common stitches and techniques you will need to know to crochet a bunny:
- Pattern reading – usually US or UK terms are the most common.
- Magic circle – for Amigurumi.
- Single Crochet Stitch
- Slip Stitch
- Half Double Crochet Stitch
- Double Crochet Stitch
- Decreasing – the invisible decrease is the best for Amigurumi.
- Finish Off – which involves fasten off and weaving in the ends.
- Embroidery – usually the basics only for face features.
Can Beginners Crochet Bunnies?
Yes! A crochet bunny pattern rated as easy is doable by a beginner that’s comfortable with the basic crochet stiches. Normally, you will need to know how to chain, single crochet, half double crochet and double crochet for these patterns.
Most designers will describe the level of difficulty in the pattern notes. So, before you commit to starting a pattern, please make sure you check the instructions.

Tips for Crocheting Cute Bunnies
Now, that you have this great collection of patterns, here are some tips to crochet a perfect bunny:
Practice the Techniques and Skills
Firstly, if you’re new to crochet, especially to Amigurumi, make sure you are comfortable with the skills a pattern calls for. Then, try learning things like the magic circle, crochet in continuous rounds, and invisible decrease. YouTube is a great learning source.
These are all important skills to achieve a great finished result. A good rule of thumb is to choose a pattern that’s rated as easy or beginner friendly.
Try Different Yarns
A good thing about all these crochet bunny patterns is that you don’t have to use the exact same yarn and materials. These are all projects that you can play with different yarn fibers, thickness, and colors to suit your bunnies to your style.
Keep Track of Your Stitch Count
Stitch markers will be your best friend when it comes to keeping track of your rows and stitch count. It’s always a good idea to get in the habit of using them, even if it’s an easy bunny pattern.
Not to mention, you will avoid the frustration of having to frog your work just because you missed one stitch in a row.
Give Attention to Details
A well finished crochet duck, or any other project, will not only look professional, but will also make you feel accomplished. So, make sure you fasten off and properly weave in your ends to assure your finished project will last longer.
If you’re making them for a child, please take precautions to make them safe. One way to make them safe for children is by embroidering the face features instead of using safety eyes.
