MellyGurumi Easter Bunny Part 1

MellyGurumi Easter Bunny Part 1

A FREE MINI CROCHET ALONG (CAL)

The MellyGurumi Easter Bunny Part 1 is my very first full amigurumi creation – and hopefully the first of many more.  Her pattern is easy to follow, with step by step instructions, loads of photos and helpful hints – she also comes with her own unique birth certificate.

She is fun to create, and you can use your imagination when decorating her dress and the eggs in her basket.

She is perfect for cuddling and is a great yarn buster.

PATTERN – MellyGurumi Easter Bunny Part 1

HEAD

Firmly stuffed (be careful not to overstuff) and worked in the round using colour (A) make a mc.

Round 1

Ch 1, sc 6 into mc, place stitch marker in 6th sc and continue to work in the round (6 sc).

Helpful hint: move the stitch marker and place in the last stitch of each row and this will help keep your stitch count correct and help with row counting, and because we are working quite tightly in the round, I weave my beginning tail in whilst working round 2.

Round 2

Sc 2 into each st (12 sc).

Helpful hint: with my patterns, I usually always start with an increase in the 1st stitch, so if your increase stitch falls in the first stitch of the increase stitch from the last row, your stitch should be correct.

Round 3

*Sc 2 into next st, sc into next st* rep *.* 5 more times (18 sc).

Round 4

*Sc 2 into next st, sc into next 2 sts* rep *.* 5 more  times (24 sc).

Round 5

*Sc 2 into next st, sc into next 3 sts* rep *.* 5 more times (30 sc).

Round 6

Sc into next 30 sts (30 sc).

Round 7

*Sc 2 into next st, sc into next 4 sts* rep *.* 5 more times (36 sc).

Rounds 8 – 9

Sc into next 36 sts (36 sc).

Round 10

*Sc 2 into next st, sc into next 5 sts* rep *.* 5 more times (42 sc).

Rounds 11 – 13

Sc into next 42 sts (42 sc).

Helpful hint: if you are using a safety nose, you can place it just above row 2, if you are wanting to embroider a nose, you can do that when the head is finished and stuffed, and I made my embroidered nose just above row two for the “v” and then make the stripe over the magic circle and row 1 and the bottom of row 1 and row 2 – hope that makes sense – otherwise have a look at the photos below.  I have used black cotton, but a pink nose would look adorable too, so use whatever you think will look best.

Round 14

*Sc 2 into next st, sc into next 6 sts* rep *.* 5 more times (48 sc).

Round 15

*Sc 2 into next st, sc into next 7 sts* rep *.* 5 more times (54 sc).

Rounds 16 – 19

Sc into next 54 sts (54 sc).

Helpful hint: insert safety eyes in between row 19 and 20, about 25 stitches apart.

Round 20

*Sc 2 into next st, sc into next 8 sts* rep *.* 5 more times (60 sc).

Rounds 21 – 22

Sc into next 60 sts (60 sc).

Round 23

*Sc 2 into next st, sc into next 9 sts* rep *.* 5 more times (66 sc).

Rounds 24 – 28

Sc into next 66 sts (66 sc).

Round 29

*Inv sc2tog, sc into next 9 sts* rep *.* 5 more times (60 sc).

Round 30

*Inv sc2tog, sc into next 8 sts* rep *.* 5 more times (54 sc).

Round 31

*Inv sc2tog, sc into next 7 sts* rep *.* 5 more times (48 sc).

Round 32

*Inv sc2tog, sc into next 6 sts* rep *.* 5 more times (42 sc).

Round 33

*Inv sc2tog, sc into next 5 sts* rep *.* 5 more times (36 sc).

Helpful hint: you can stuff the head now, and then just add more in before you close off after the last round, the head should be firm, but do not over stuff otherwise the stitches start to pull apart and you can see the stuffing.

Round 34

*Inv sc2tog, sc into next 4 sts* rep *.* 5 more times (30 sc).

Round 35

*Inv sc2tog, sc into next 3 sts* rep *.* 5 more times (24 sc).

Round 36

*Inv sc2tog, sc into next 2 sts* rep *.* 5 more times (18 sc).

Round 37

*Inv sc2tog, sc into next st* rep *.* 5 more times (12 sc).

Helpful hint: add more stuffing now if you think it is necessary but be careful not to overstuff.

Round 38

*Inv sc2tog*, rep *.* 5 more times (6 sc) cut yarn, ss into each sc and pull tight, cut yarn and weave in ends.

Helpful hint: we will attach the head to the body in part 6.

Round 2

Sc 2 into next 5 sts (10 sc).

Helpful hint: move the stitch marker and place in the last stitch of each row and this will help keep your stitch count correct and help with row counting, and because we are working quite tightly in the round, I weave my beginning tail in whist working round 3.

Round 3

*Sc 2 into next st, sc into next st*, rep *.* 4 more times (15 sc).

Sc into next 15 sts (15 sc).
