Velvet Bunny Lovey Pattern by Crochet For You

While making my first bunny amigurumi pattern I got a new idea to make a bunny lovey.

So here is a cute bunny lovey for little ones to snuggle with. This bunny lovey so soft with velvet yarn and gives extra coziness. This lovey would make a wonderful spring/Easter gift.

Skill Level: easy

Finished size: 

  • The blanket measures 13” x 13”.

Materials

  • Velvet yarn (approx: 250 yards). (Scroll down & read the yarn suggestions) 
  • Light worsted weight, white color yarn. approx: 100 yards)
  • Small amount of Sport or DK weight yarn in pink color
  • H-8, 5mm crochet hook
  • Tapestry needle for weaving ends.
  • For eyes, I used 2 shank buttons in black color that have a loop at the back.
  • Fiberfill
  • Stitch markers
  • Optional 4 pompoms to attach.

The velvet yarn I used for this pattern.
This yarn I ordered from eBay, also available on Amazonis not from a popular brand. I used khaki color.

Yarn suggestion
When I checked the gauge, there was a little different between my gauge swatch and Vel-Luxe yarn on the Lion Brand website.

My gauge swatch (4” x 4”) with H-8, 5mm crochet hook was 16 sc x 15 rows. I think Lion Brand Vel-Luxe yarn is perfect for this project than Bernat Velvet yarn.    

The Gauge of the velvet yarn: 16 sc x 15 rows = (4” x 4”) with H-8, 5mm crochet hook.

Notes:
Head and arms

  • Do not join after each round.
  • Always attach the stitch markers on first st in each round.

Head
With velvet yarn and H-8, 5mm crochet hook, make an adjustable/magic ring.

Round 1: 6 sc into the adjustable ring. (6 sts)

Round 2: 2 sc inc around. (12 sts)

Round 3: sc in each st around. (12 sts)

Round 4: [sc inc, 1 sc] 6 times. (18 sts)

Round 5: [sc inc, sc in each of next 2 sts] 6 times. (24 sts)

Round 6: [sc inc, sc in each of next 3 sts] 6 times. (30 sts)

Round 7: [sc inc, sc in each of next 4 sts] 6 times. (36 sts)

Round 8: sc in each st around. (36 sts)

Round 9: repeat round 8. (36 sts)

Round 10: [sc inc, sc in each of next 5 sts] 6 times. (42 sts)

Round 11: sc in each st around. (42 sts)

Round 12 to 14: repeat round 8. (42 sts) Embroider nose with pink yarn and attach eyes between 7 and 8 rounds.

When attaching eyes to the head, I used shank buttons in black color that have a loop at the back. Because, instead of making round head, I need to get the real rabbit face.

So here what I did. Using a long piece of black color yarn and tapestry needle, I knot a tie on the loop of the first button, insert the needle from right side to the wrong side between 7 and 8 rounds where I want to attach the first eye. At this point, you can add fiberfill into the nose part. Then insert the needle from the wrong side to the right side between 7 and 8 rounds on other side of the front face where I want to attach next eye. (see image 2 below)

Insert the needle through the loop of the button and insert again through the same spot where you get the needle out (see images 1 & 2 below). Pull the yarn little bit tight to get the rabbit face detail. You can adjust the shape of the rabbit face while adjusting eyes and adding fiberfill. I added more fiberfill between eyes and nose to make forehead. When you get the shape of the forehead, tie a knot and add more fiberfill (see images 3 & 4 below).
