This adorable little bunny brings a whole new meaning to the words chubby bunny! He is super cute, easy to work up and would make a great addition to any Easter basket. I used fun fur and worsted weight yarn to work up this little guy. I know, fun fur is not everyone’s favorite, but if you give it a chance and take your time it’s 100% worth a try!

Materials required for this project:
*Worsted weight yarn in any color desired
*Fun fur yarn in any color desired
*Small amount of felt in any color desired

Row 1. 9 hdc in 2nd ch from hook (9) pull beginning strand to close hole, place marker
Row 2. 2 hdc in each stitch (18)
Rows 3-7. hdc in each stitch (18)
At this point you will need to turn your work wrong side out. Most of the fun fur will be on the inside of your work and you’ll want to turn it inside out so that the fun fur is visible. You’ll continue working with the wrong side facing out. You can also add your eyes at this point. I added my eyes about 1.5″ down. Begin stuffing and finish to close.
Row 8. Hdc 1, hdc 2 together, repeat around (12)
Row 9. Hdc 2 together, repeat around (6)
Cut your yarn leaving a 4″ strand and use the remaining strand and a darning needle to close up the hole.

Stuff your feet and sew onto the bottom of the bunny.
Felt for ears and nose
Use your scissors to cut a small triangle shape out of felt, and using your thread and sewing needle sew the nose underneath the eyes or wherever desired.
Cut 2 long triangle shapes out of your felt to fit onto your bunny’s ears. Your triangles should be a bit shorter and more narrow than the ears themselves. Using your needle and thread sew the felt pieces onto your bunny’s ears. Now, sew your bunny’s ears to the bunny’s head.
All done! I hope you found this pattern super easy to follow. Feel free to drop me a a comment below and let me know if you used this pattern to create a chubby bunny of your own, and if you ran into any issues while following this pattern.
