Velvet Bunny Amigurumi Pattern by Crochet For You

This velvet bunny born as a part of my amigurumi adventure. This year Iโ€™m focusing to learn how to crochet/design amigurumi patterns.

I realized the velvet yarn is perfect for making amigurumi. It has that felted texture to make cute and cuddly animals.

Well, I need to say, I’m not an expert on crochet amigurumi designing. I just start to learn how to crochet and designing these beautiful and creative creatures. 

So I used a new way to attach eyes. It makes the shape of rabbit face well and I’m 100% happy about it. Since it is my first time designing amigurumi rabbit face, I thought it is the hardest part. NO… If you already have an experience crocheting amigurumi, I hope you can do it better than me.

Velvet Bunny Lovey Free Crochet Pattern

Skill Level: easy

Finished size: 13.5″ tall

Materials

  • Velvet yarn (approx: 250 yards). (Scroll down & read all about the yarn suggestions) 
  • 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 of the button.
  • Fiberfil
  • Stitch markers

The velvet yarn I used for this pattern.
This yarn I ordered from eBay, (also available on Amazon) i 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 (4โ€ x 4โ€) 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.    

Gauge: 16 sc x 15 rows = (4โ€ x 4โ€) with H-8, 5mm crochet hook.

Abbreviations

  • ch = chain
  • sl st = slip stitch
  • sc = single crochet
  • dc = double crochet
  • st = stitch
  • ch-() sp = chain-(number of chain) space
  • sk = skip
  • beg = beginning
  • * to ; = work instructions within brackets as many times as directed
  • [] = work instructions within brackets as many times as directed
  • sc inc = 2 sc in one st
  • sc dec = crochet 2 sc together (Insert the hook and draw up a loop in each of 2 stitches, yarn over, pull back through all 3 loops on hook at once)

Notes:

  • Do not join after each round.
  • Always attach the stitch markers on first st in each round.
  • For eyes I used 2 shank buttons in black color that have a loop at the back of the button.

Head                  

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).
