Berry Patch Bunny Girl Version - A Free Amigurumi Pattern





Happy Spring! I'm loving all the colorful patterns I am seeing pop up everywhere! 

Whether you are looking for a pattern for Easter or Spring (or any ole time) these Berry Patch Bunnies are a quick and easy make. Below is the girl version, you can head over here to find the boy 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 Bear, Mia and Marshall the Frog for more amigurumi fun!

*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 orchid

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 beige

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.





Round 26: SC around (42 SC) Change to orchid

Round 27: SC around (42 SC)

Round 28: SC in back loops only (42 SC) (We will use the front loops later)

Round 29: SC around (42 SC)

Round 30: SC in back loops only (42 SC) (We will use the front loops later)

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. Place your eyes where you would like them and then remove to embroider your eyelashes before attaching the washer to the back. (This creates a little hole to help see where you want your eyelashes to go) 





Nose- 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 the pictures below





*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 remain sturdy, less wobble)




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.




Flowers- Make 3

Make a magic circle, complete the following inside: 2 DC, slip stitch (this completes one petal, repeat 4 more times for a total of 5 petals)

Pull the circle tight and slip stitch to the first petal to close, fasten off leaving a long tail for sewing




Dress- To work the dress, have your bunny’s body towards you and feet away from you (see pictures for example). We will work around starting with the bottom layer first:

With orchid create a slip knot and attach with a slip stitch to one of the front loops from round 28 (For a cleaner look attach at the back of the body)



Round 1: Ch 1, DC in the same stitch and in each stitch around, join with a slip stitch to the first DC (42 DC)

Round 2: Ch 1, *1 DC in the same stich, DC INC in the next*, *repeat around (63 SC)

Round 3: Ch 1, 1 DC in the same stitch and in each stitch around, join with a slip stitch to the first DC (63 DC)

Fasten off and weave in end






Top Layer-

As we did above create a slip knot and attach with a slip stitch to one of the front loops from round 30

(NOTE: For this layer the first two round will be done in HDC and the 3rd round will go back to DC)



Round 1: Ch 1, HDC in the same stitch and in each stitch around, join with a slip stitch to the first HDC (42 HDC)

Round 2: Ch 1, *1 HDC in the same stich, HDC INC in the next*, *repeat around (63 HDC)

Round 3: Ch 1, 1 DC in the same stitch and in each stitch around, join with a slip stitch to the first DC (63 DC)

Fasten off and weave in end

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 7-20: 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. 



Attaching everything together-

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.



Dress Straps- Make 2

Chain 11

Row 1: HDC in the 2nd chain from hook and in each chain across (10 HDC)

Row 2: Chain 1 and turn, HDC in each chain across (10 HDC)

Fasten off leaving a long tail for sewing

Sew straps on over the arms, starting and ending at row 44 on each side. 




You're all done! I hope you enjoyed this pattern and I would love to see your creations! Feel free to share them with me on Facebook.

  3. Just a quick question, which round am I starting the second leg? I don't see where I am starting the second shoe and leg...

    1. Hi! You will make the second leg the same as the first. Starting from round 1 again, once completed you won’t fasten off like the first. Instead you will continue to the next round to join the legs together :)

  4. Hi Stephanie,
    I'm new to crochet and would be happy if you could please explain this line to me:
    Rounds 7-8: SC around (30 SC)

    Does this mean that for round 7 there are 30 SCs and for round 8 there are also 30 SCs? This means 60 in total.
    Or
    Does it mean it is 30 SCs in total for round 7 and 8?

    Thank you!
    Bel

    1. Hi Bel, great question! For round 7 you will SC into each stitch around and will end with 30 total. Round 8 we will do the same, SC in each stitch around and will end with total 30 stitches. For both rounds there are no increases or decreases :)
