The great thing about the squares for this spring themed blanket is that they are so versatile.  Mix and match the squares for your own perfect spring blanket.  Make a blanket with just the Bunny face bottom in various colors for a fun blanket! What a perfect pillow these two squares would make – front and backside!

Crochet Bunny Behind Square Pattern Details

I am working this crochet bunny pattern from the same base pattern as my Christmas crochet granny squares.  All of the squares in this series work up to a large 14″ square.  Perfect for pillows or to mix-and-match for an adorable Easter spring themed throw!  These individual squares would also make wonderful wall hangings for your spring themed home decor.

This is a very easy square – perfect for beginners!  Starts with solid white in double crochet stitches which is then squared off for joining.

I then crocheted two round feet and added pink little foot pads which are sewn to the square. Then you will make a big fluffy yarn pom pom for his tail. Sew in place and all done!  Easy and fast!

I am using Red Heart With Love* yarn for my squares.  Red Heart With Love yarn is a medium weight #4 acrylic worsted weight yarn.  These granny squares would be a great way to use up your stash, too!
