Berry Patch Bunny Boy Version - A Free Amigurumi Pattern

You have all brought me joy in your requests for a boy version in my amigurumi patterns. Having 3 girls I had a bias, and looking back now I notice it in my craft fairs too, whoops! It was so much fun to design another boy pattern and I have a soft spot for bunnies! Win, win!  


I hope you enjoy it too. Below is the pattern for the boy version, you can head over here to find the girl version!


These bunnies were purposely made about the same size as my other forest animals, so they can be played with together as friends or displayed nicely at a craft fair. Be sure to visit Holly the Honey BearMia and Marshall the Frog for more amigurumi fun!

Let's start crocheting!

Materials-


· Size 4 worsted weight yarn (I used 75g of Vanna’s Choice yarn in Beige, you will also need a small amount of yarn for the pants/suspenders, shirt and bow)

· Pink crochet or embroidery thread for the nose/mouth

· 10.5 mm safety eyes (you can visit my crochet eye tutorial here if you would like an alternative)

· 3.5 mm crochet hook (these are my favorite to use!)

· Scissors

· Tapestry/sewing needle

· Stuffing

· Stitch markers



Abbreviations: US terminology

MC- Magic circle

SC- Single crochet

SC INC- Single crochet increase

DC INC- Double crochet increase

INV DEC- Invisible decrease

HDC- Half double crochet

DC- Double crochet



This bunny measures about 14 inches from ears to feet !

*Slowly stuff as you go, you want it to be firm but not stretched. You will be working in the round, I like using a stitch marker at the beginning of each round.

Legs and Body-

Make 2: Using beige

Round 1: Create a magic circle with 6 SC

Round 2: SC INC in each stitch (12 SC)

Round 3: SC in the first stitch, SC INC in the next stitch, repeat around (18 SC)

Round 4: SC in the first 2 stitches, SC INC in the next stitch, repeat around (24 SC)

Round 5: SC in the first 3 stitches, SC INC in the next stitch, repeat around (30 SC)

Round 6: SC around in the back loops only (30 SC)

Rounds 7-8: SC around (30 SC)

Round 9: SC in the first 9 stitches, INV DEC 6 times, SC in the last 9 stitches (24 SC)

Round 10: SC in the first 6 stitches, INV DEC 6 times, SC in the last 6 stitches (18 SC) Change to pant color

Rounds 11-24: SC around (18 SC)

Fasten off (do not fasten off at the end of the 2nd leg, see below)

(At the end of Round 24 on the 2nd leg, complete a SC in each of the next 6 stitches (this will line up your legs to be straight when we join. Round 25 joins the legs together and starts the body)



Round 25: Chain 3 and attach to the first leg with a SC (make sure both of your feet are facing the same direction), SC in the remaining stitches around the leg, when you reach the chain make a SC across each of the 3 chains, SC in the remaining stitches of the next leg and SC across each of the 3 chains (you will have SC on both sides of the 3 chains now) (42 SC) This completes your join and is where your next round will start.






Rounds 26-30: SC around (42 SC) Change to shirt color

Rounds 31-41: SC around (42 SC)

Round 42: SC in the first 5 stitches, INV DEC, repeat around (36 SC)

Round 43: SC in the first 4 stitches, INV DEC, repeat around (30 SC)

Round 44: SC around (30 SC) Change to beige

Round 45: SC in the first 3 stitches, INV DEC, repeat around (24 SC)

Rounds 46-47: SC around (24 SC)

Fasten off and leave a long tail for sewing



Head- With beige

Round 1: Create a magic circle with 6 SC

Round 2: SC INC in each stitch around (12 SC)

Round 3: SC in the first stitch, SC INC in the next, repeat around (18 SC)

Round 4: SC in the first 2 stitches, SC INC in the next, repeat around (24 SC)

Round 5: SC in the first 3 stitches, SC INC in the next, repeat around (30 SC)

Round 6: SC in the first 4 stitches, SC INC in the next, repeat around (36 SC)

Round 7: SC in the first 5 stitches, SC INC in the next, repeat around (42 SC)

Round 8: SC in the first 6 stitches, SC INC in the next, repeat around (48 SC)

Round 9: SC in the first 7 stitches, SC INC in the next, repeat around (54 SC)

Rounds 10-18: SC around (54 SC)

Note: Here is where we will add the facial features before we start closing the head. Insert the eyes between rows 16 and 17, 8 stitches apart.

Nose and mouth- Using pink embroidery thread place the nose two rows beneath your eyes and two stitches in on each side (this will leave 4 stitches in the middle and this is what you will pass your thread through to create the nose). Pass your thread through 13 times (or as many as you would like for a thinner or wider nose). Use your thread to make a straight line down 3 rows and then a ‘V’ for the smile, please see picture for reference.






*Stuff your head firmly as you go.

Round 19: SC in the first 7 stitches, INV DEC in the next, repeat around (48 SC)

Round 20: SC in the first 6 stitches, INV DEC in the next, repeat around (42 SC)

Round 21: SC in the first 5 stitches, INV DEC in the next, repeat around (36 SC)

Round 22: SC in the first 4 stitches, INV DEC in the next, repeat around (30 SC)

Round 23: SC in the first 3 stitches, INV DEC in the next, repeat around (24 SC) *Continue to stuff the head firmly

Round 24: SC in the first 2 stitches, INV DEC in the next, repeat around (18 SC)

Round 25: SC in the first stitch, INV DEC in the next, repeat around (12 SC)

Round 26: INV DEC around (6 SC)

Fasten off and sew remaining part closed, weave in your end




Ears
- Make 2

With beige

Round 1: Create a magic circle with 8 SC

Rounds 2-3: SC around (8 SC)

Round 4: SC in the first stitch, SC INC in the next, repeat around (12 SC)

Round 5: SC around (12 SC)

Round 6: SC in the first 2 stitch, SC INC in the next, repeat around (16 SC)

Round 7-15: SC around (16 SC)

Round 16: SC in the first 2 stitches, INV DEC in the next, repeat around (12 SC)

Fold the ears in half as pictured below and SC across the top to close, fasten off and leave a long tail for sewing (this creates a curved ear and will help the ear to be sturdy)






Sew the ears onto the head, place them evenly apart in line with the eyes. I started at the 3rd row and finished at the 6th row.




Arms- Make 2

*Lightly stuff the bottom of the arms only*

With beige

Round 1: Create a magic circle with 6 SC

Round 2: SC INC in each stitch around (12 SC)

Round 3: SC in the first 3 stitches, SC INC, repeat around (15 SC)

Rounds 4-5: SC around (15 SC)

Round 6: SC in the first stitch, INV DEC, repeat around (10 SC)

Rounds 7-14: SC around (10 SC) Change to shirt color

Rounds 15-20: SC around (10 SC)

At the end of round 20 pinch the arm flat and make 5 SC across the top to close, fasten off and leave a long tail to sew onto the body.



Assembling the body-

Sew the head onto the body, making sure to have the facial features centered. Add more stuffing as you go to make it firm and less wobbly. Next sew the arms onto the body centered with the head at row 44.



Suspenders- Make 2

 Chain ­­30, HDC in the 2nd chain from hook and in each chain across

Fasten off with a long tail for sewing

Sew each suspender onto row 31, front and back over the arms.

Two options can be done with the suspenders, they can be only sewn onto front and back of row 31 (meaning they can hang down if wanted) or they can be sewn along the body so they will stay in place.





Bow- With color of choice chain 20

Row 1: HDC in the 2nd chain from hook and in each chain across (19 HDC)

Rows 2-3: Chain 1 and turn, HDC in each chain across (19 HDC)

Fasten off leaving a long tail

Using your tail whip stitch the two ends together to make a tube (pictures below), placing your sewn side in the middle wrap your yarn tightly around the middle 7 times to form your bow. Secure it in the back and use the remaining tail to sew onto the body. (Pictures to the side)




Your bunny is complete! I hope you have enjoyed making this pattern. Let me know if you have any questions with this pattern or any of my other patterns, I would be happy to help. Feel free to share your finished bunny with me on Facebook, I'd love to see them!





Thank you,

  1. What a cutie. My stuff keeps rotating back and forth between boys and girls as the family dynamics change.
