Make Your Own Honey-Bunny: An Easy Amigurumi Project

It’s no secret—I LOVE making amigurumi! It’s one of my favorite crochet projects to design. I never get tired of making cute things with yarn, and I especially love those extra added features that give them such big personalities!

Often, crocheted toys have lots of pieces that need to be stitched together, which takes time, practice, and patience to get things looking the way we imagine they should. This can be frustrating for someone who wants to try this kind of project for the first time! Sometimes even those of us who have had lots of practice just want to make something cute without a bunch of fuss.

With that in mind, I designed this super easy amigurumi bunny that is made in just one piece. Don’t worry, it still includes enough details to keep things fun!

Hello, Honey-Bunny!

This little cutie begins with an adjustable loop and is worked in single crochet in the round (in typical amigurumi style) while making the body. The legs are created while the body is being worked, in a stitch similar to a bobble, but worked in stages over three consecutive rounds.

After the body is completed, a simple rectangle of fabric is worked, back and forth in turned rows. With the help of a little gathering-thread-magic, this rectangular piece will become the head and ears.

Because this bunny is made all in one piece, it is much less likely to come apart if handled a bit rough by a little one. However, if you’re considering making this for a baby, do not use safety eyes! Despite what the name suggests, safety eyes are NOT safe for children under three years old. Instead, embroider the eyes with large French knots that are anchored well into the crocheted fabric. Also, make sure to crochet your bunny large enough so that it is not a choking hazard.

Whether you’ve been thinking about trying your hand at amigurumi for the first time or you’re looking for a quick project to make with your stash yarn, this little bunny is the perfect spring project for you!

    These are cute except the ears are inside out & I find that really freaky! Super simple, but not for me.

      Hello Cecile!
      The two stitches to shift the beginning of rounds are worked after you have completed Rnds 10-14. After finishing round 14, you simply just work 2 SC and then place the stitch marker in the following st. If you crochet right-handed, this moves the stitch marker to the left by two stitches. The purpose of this is to make sure that all the cute little legs are lined up correctly on the belly.

      Happy bunny making!

      Hello Charlotte!
      After Rnd 14 we make 2 stitches and then we begin to work back and forth in turned rows. To do this, simply make a turning chain, then turn your work so that you are looking at the back side of your work, then start working into the stitches from the last round. After you have worked to the end, you will make a turning chain, then turn your work to work across the row again, and so forth. Take a look at the pictures to see where the rows begin. The bottom half of the bunny is worked in the round and the top half is worked back and forth in rows, so there is a slit where the work is turned (along the row-ends). I hope this helps!

    Hello! I’m getting stuck. I’m at the part where I put 7 sc on the edge. I have done this to the right side and then I don’t understand how I get those 7 sc to the left side too. I wish there was a video, some of this was quite hard for me to read through but I was able to get most of it except this part.
