Easter Bunny! The height of the finished toy, with the specified materials, is about 22 cm.
If you have any questions about knitting toys, you can write to me at
the first version of the rabbit: Yarn Art Jeans 48 (beige) main color, 86 (light lemon) secondary color.
the second version of the rabbit: 46 (gray) main color, 33 (bright blue) additional.
– a little white yarn to decorate the eyes;
– a little 40 (brown) for the spout in the first version.
You can absolutely use
yarn of any color and texture.
Jeans yarn consumption: 1.5 skeins
base color and a little more
half a skein of extra.
– a thin contrast thread – a marker.
Be sure to use a marker!
– a hook of the right size for your yarn, I have it No. 2;
– filler (holofiber, sintepukh);
– eyes on a secure mount 8mm (you can use any eyes);
– a needle for stitching parts;
– wire for the frame of toys. I use braided wire from an electrical store (1.5mm);
– plaster for winding the wire.
The height of the finished toy, with the specified materials, is about 22 cm.
MR – amigurumi ring, you can start knitting in the second loop of the chain if you do not know how or it is inconvenient to do MR;
SC – single crochet, knit behind both walls of the loop, unless otherwise indicated in the description;
CH – air loop;
SL-ST – connecting column, do not knit it too tight;
DEC – decrease (2SC together behind the front walls)
DEC – increase (2SC from one loop)
HDC – half double crochet
DC – double crochet
knob – several DCs with one top in one loop of the base, first knit the crochets of all DCs, then complete the knitting of all columns with a common knitting.
OC is the main color.
DC is an additional color.
* – after this asterisk, the number of repetitions of knitted loops is indicated
General recommendations for knitting toys:
– First, read the entire description of the toy very carefully, then start knitting, read the description of each row of the toy, take your time and be careful.
– Choose a hook according to your density! There should be no distance between the columns, the filler should not shine through, but you don’t need to knit too tightly either, the fabric should turn out to be plastic, and not be wooden.
– Use a good filler to prevent bumps and bumps when filling the toy.
– All parts are knitted in a spiral, the lifting loop at the beginning of the row and the connecting loop at the end of the row are not used.
– All loops, except for the decrease loop, are knitted behind both walls of the loop.
Knitting loops for the front or back wall is indicated in the description of the row.
– Please note that the connecting column is not knitted tight.
– Use a thin, contrasting marker thread to mark the beginning of the row. Before knitting the first loop of the row, throw it alternately: before knitting and after knitting.
– The toy is knitted face out, fig.1.
– When making the head, insert all the threads and bring them out from the bottom of the head.
– The thread is changed as follows:
You knit the last SC not to the end, i.e. insert the hook behind both walls of the loop (when knitting a decrease, we insert the hook behind the two front walls), bring the thread out – there are two loops on the hook, then take the thread
a different color and knit these loops in a new color.
– The cone is knitted into one loop of the base, at each column we knit only a crochet, at the end we knit all the columns together.
– When knitting a bump and further changing the color of the thread, change the thread on knitting all the columns together.
each DC in the bump
knit only a crochet when changing colors after the bump, knit all the columns of the bump together with a new color
– The bump in each part is knitted with a different number of columns, the number of columns is indicated in the description.
– If the bump does not stick out from the front side, push it with the back of the hook from the wrong side, the bumps should stick out only from the front side, from the wrong side it should look like in the photo.
– If it is difficult for you to change the color of the thread in the row where the bumps are knitted, knit the row in one, contrasting color.
– SC one row below is knitted as follows:
In ordinary knitting, we introduce a hook ok at
points 2 and 4, a row below – points 1 and 3.
a DC is knitted to point 1, a DC is knitted to a point 2, a DC is knitted to a point 3, a DC is knitted to a point 4. loops on the row below are obtained elongated
– in this MK, for convenience, there will be no reference to color, the abbreviations OTs (primary color) and DC (additional color) will be used.
– pay attention to the alternation of colors, in each row it is indicated with
what color to start. So if it is written: alternating 1×1 OC and DC 10SC, then you must first knit one SC with the main color, then one SC with the additional color. If it is written: alternating 1×1 DC and OTs 10SC, then you must first knit one SC with an additional color, then one SC with the main color.
We begin to knit OTs. Stuff as you knit. The marker passes from the bottom of the head, we do not align it.

Leave the end of the thread to tighten the hole, fasten and cut the thread, pull the hole, hide the thread in the head.
Make eye tightening. To do this, enter a strong thread from the bottom of the head, I make the tightening either with the same thread that I knit, or with dental floss. Bring out the needle at point 1, enter at point 2, bring it out at point 3 and enter at point 4, make such a “figure eight” several times, while pulling the thread, but do not overdo it, just drown your eyes slightly. When the desired result is achieved, bring the thread from the bottom of the head and fasten. In the same way, make tightening points 5.6 and 7.8.
Embroider the whites of the eyes with white thread. With the thread of the nose color, embroider the nose between the first row (inserting the needle into MR) and the 5th row of the head. Embroider the nose as you like – filling the entire nose with yarn or just highlighting the outline of the nose, see photo. Embroider a smile and eyebrows.

We begin to knit OTs. Knit two identical parts. marker passes
on the side of the part, make sure that all reductions are on the side.

Fasten the thread, leave a long end for sewing, cut off.
Fold the ear in half and sew behind the front walls. Attach a thread to the 43rd row DC and knit 20SL-ST. Fasten the thread, cut and hide.
Sew the ears to the head at the end of the design of the muzzle, between the 20th and 26th rows of the head, focusing on the knobs of the 19th row of the head.

We put a little filler in the foot, take the wire, fold
its loop to the size of the foot, wrap it with a plaster and insert it into
leg, into the hole between the 17th and 18th rows. We leave about 25 cm
wire. Next, we stuff the foot well.

Leave the end of the thread to tighten the hole, fasten the thread and cut off.
Pull the hole, hide the thread inside the paw.
We knit two identical parts. The marker passes from the side, align if necessary.
Start knitting from the right and left sides for the right and left paws, respectively. Knitting start with the left paw.
knitting of the left paw we start from point 1
we start knitting the right paw from point 2

Fasten and cut the thread on the left paw, continue knitting on the right paw: knit 4CH and connect with SL-ST to the left paw.
Stuff the paws well, especially pay attention to the junction of the foot and the continuation of the paw.
We continue to knit from the paws, we fill as we knit. The marker runs along the back, from the 23rd row the marker should be located exactly in the middle of the back.

Put your paws, find the most successful position in which the future rabbit stands confidently. Bend the wire of the paws towards each other, twist. At a height of about 16 cm from the floor, bend the wire into a loop so that it does not interfere with knitting. Do not wrap with a plaster; when attaching hands, we will unbend it.

We put a little filler in the upper paws. We straighten the wire running from the lower paws along the body. We take the wire, make a small loop, wrap it with a plaster, insert it into the paw, wrap the body around the wire, measure the required length of wire for the second paw, cut it off, make a loop, wrap it with a plaster and insert it into the paw. If necessary, we cut off the excess from the wire of the body, bend it with a loop and wrap it well with a plaster along with me paw attachment stoma. We stuff the body well, we do not stuff the upper paws much with a hook or a wooden stick.

fasten and cut.
We begin to knit OTs. Fill lightly before sewing to the body.
We sew approximately between 6 and 8 rows of the body.
