Crochet Bunny Pattern Details

Rabbits are just so adorable.  And since I seem to be working my way through a year’s worth of towel toppers I knew I had to come up with a spring bunny towel topper.  I love how adaptable this pattern has become just by changing up small parts of the pattern I end up with another adorable towel topper.

All of my towel topper patterns could be tackled by an adventurous beginner.  This cute bunny is made with single crochet stitches for the face.  The crochet bunny ears use sc, hdc and dc stitches.

Since this pattern works up so quickly it would make fantastic Easter gifts especially with the addition of a cute spring themed kitchen towel.

I made mine with Red Heart Super Saver* worsted weight yarn but use whatever you have on hand – even cotton yarn.  Perfect scrap project!

I have several towel toppers now that utilize a hidden 3″ ring* which allows the towel to be removable.  I purchase my rings from Amazon* but you can substitute with inexpensive plastic shower rings, wood rings or even elastic hair ties.  All have been used successfully by other makers.
