Crochet an Ichigo San Bunny amigurumi for this easter!

Tiny Rabbit Hole – Bunny Cabbage Easter Amigurumi Crochet Free Pattern

This month, we’re going to talk about our favourite character, the BUNNY! And not forgetting their favourite food too. This bunny is inspired by our favourite stories of all times – Alice in Wonderland! Remember how Alice fell into the rabbit burrow while trying to chase a mysterious bunny with a pocket watch? This is one of the guards from the Red Queen and it is wearing the poker cards uniform. Does it give you a feel of the medieval times? Hehehe~ And a HUGE pot of cabbage beside it. Alright I don’t think they mentioned about cabbages in the story, but…. isn’t it cute?

Q: But isn’t Easter all bout the eggs?
A: Maybe at Tiny Rabbit Hole, we don’t exactly follow traditions. We listen to our Bunny God =p

This is an easy pattern which is manageable for students who have recently completed our Level 2 Crochet Workshops or equivalent and would like to learn a new stitch.

For this project, we’ll be using Schachenmayr Original Journey from Germany to make the luscious cabbage. If you have been to Tiny Rabbit Hole, you would have tried these yarns before. They’re a little special compared to what you’ve seen at Spotlight and other local craft stores. Why are they special?

  • They’re made up of a knitted tube with stuffing in the middle that plumps the yarn up
  • This yarn, I can say, is only 1 ply. Which means there are no chances of splitting up the yarn by accident for a complete beginner.
  • This green has sporadic white spots. It’s very soft, pretty and organic looking, so the first thing that came to my mind is to make vegetables with it!

A 3.0 or 3.5mm crochet hook would be suitable for the project. You may interchange the hook size so that you can achieve various leaf sizes with just the 2 leaf sizes we have below.

Instructions

  • Our amigurumi are mostly done in continuous rounds starting with a Magic Ring. You don’t need to end with a slip stitch unless otherwise stated. You should use a stitch marker to mark the last stitch of every round at all times.
  • You may wish to download the Counter+ app to help you with your counting.
  • Please crochet the stitches tightly to prevent the polyfiber stuffing from showing. However, do not crochet too tightly otherwise it’ll be difficult to continue.
  • Be sure to push the washer down only the first screw of the safety eye to prevent bulging.
  • Always stuff your amigurumi firmly till the point that it feels bouncy.
  • Always leave a long tail for sewing.
  • When felting, ensure that the needle is perpendicular to object.

Finishing
Now is the time to stitch every piece together. Sew the small cabbage leaves to the core/heart of the cabbage, followed by the large cabbage leaves. You should overlap them to and don’t make it look too even. It’s organic cabbage ya!

While working on the bigger pieces, you want to create some waves. You may insert your yarn needle in the middle of the piece while using your fingers to maintain the waves. It should look like the next picture after you have secured it.
