Hoppy Day! My bunny C2C project is finished and I turned it into an adorable pillow sham! Such a cute piece of decor for a kids room or for the Easter holiday. And gender neutral! I would love to see someone make a row of gray bunnies! It fits a standard size bed pillow so no need to use a bunch of fiberfil stuffing or search for a custom pillow size to make this project!
– Bernat Super Value Yarn in Mint, Baby Pink, Lilac, and Winter White. You will need 2 skeins of Mint (or whatever color you will use for the back). And 1 skein of the other colors. Shop all 73 colors of this yarn at Yarnspirations.com.
– Size H Crochet Hook
– Standard bed pillow
– Tapestry needle
First you will need to download the Bunny C2C Graph >>> Click HERE
I used the Corner-to-Corner (C2C) method to crochet the graph. If you aren’t familiar with the C2C technique, The Crochet Crowd has a very helpful video tutorial for FREE that shows you the basic technique of corner-to-corner crochet. Check that out HERE.
VERY IMPORTANT: Instead of the traditional C2C method of using DC’s and chain 3’s to make each pixel, I used HDC’s and only chained 2 (and chained 5 instead 6 on the increase stitches). This allowed me to have a smaller overall piece. You can absolutely use the traditional method but your piece will be too large for the pillow sham.
You will want to make two rounds of SC along the edges. To do that, join yarn at any point on the edge and SC evenly around entire piece making a SC+chain 2+SC on the two pointed ends. A good way to keep your stitches even along the edge is to alternate between making 2 SC and then 3 SC along each “square.”
Make 3 large yarn pom poms and attach them to the bunny butts 🙂
After you finish the graph above you will need to make a second piece for the back in a solid color (I used Mint green). Make the same SC border along the edges.
When both pieces are done, SC them together along over the pillow. If you would rather be able to make the pillow removable, leave one button unstitched and use buttons for closer.
Lay back and relax!
Julie Jordan ( @house_of_julie ) has taken my bunny design and made a Bunny Tails & Tulips Table Runner! She shared her hand drawn graph with me and I converted it into a digital design that you are able to print! Thanks so much Julie! Check her out on Instagram HERE.

Is it possible to make this for a smaller pillow? If I used a smaller hook would that work? I’m fairly new to crochet so I am unsure about resizing patterns. Thanks for any help you could provide.

“If you would rather be able to make the pillow removable, leave one button unstitched and use buttons for closer.”
Any more clarity on the “one button”? Can I leave one side (shortest side) unstitched and use buttons ?
So Juliana what did you do for the closure? I am almost finished with mine and want it to be removable too.

I have just started making the pillow cover and I understand how you changed the pattern (hdc for dc) but I need to know, how do you handle all the changes of yarn? Do I assume you cut it every time? Thank you.
Okay I figured it out

Any chance you have written directions/instructions? I struggle with following the chart in C2C.
