Easter is just a few weeks away but there is still plenty of time to crochet this Bunny C2C Blanket! It really only takes a few days! It also makes a perfect gift for those Spring Babies. The fun part about this blanket is that I used Bernat Pipsqueak yarn to make the ears incredibly fuzzy and soft! Typically Pipsqueak yarn can be difficult to work with because its a fur yarn which makes the stitches hard to see… but don’t fear! Corner-to-corner crochet is the a great match for this yarn! Since you are essentially crocheting over the chain from the previous rows square, there is no exact stitch that needs to be found. This yarn is such a simple element to add that gives the blanket a whole new look and feel! The rest of the blanket is made with my go-to worsted weight yarn: Bernat Super Value. Stock up on both yarns and shop all the color combos at Yarnspirations.com!
– Bernat Super Value Yarn in Lilac (2 skeins), Natural (1 skein), Soft Gray (only small ball need) and Black (only two long strands needed for eyes)
– Bernat Pipsqueak Yarn in color Tickle Me Pink (2 skeins) NOTE: I ALMOST finished the second ear with just one skein – I had six more squares to go. I do believe you could make the bunny with only one skein by crocheting the ears tighter, using a HDC stitch instead of the DC, or going down a hook size.
– Size H Crochet Hook
– Tapestry Needle
– Bunny Pixel Graph
I used the Corner-to-Corner (C2C) method to crochet the graph. If you aren’t familiar with the C2C technique, I have a video class available HERE for purchase that teaches you this technique! This blanket is square so you don’t have to worry about increasing on one side and decrease on the other (like you would need to do in a rectangle blanket). So the square shape makes it less confusing if you are a newbie to corner-to-corner crochet. The Crochet Crowd also has a very helpful video tutorial for free that shows you the basic technique of corner-to-corner crochet. Check that out HERE.
Finished blanket size is 32 x 32 inches (including the small border)
Big thanks to fellow crocheter Beth for writing out all the color changes!

Need help figuring out how to weave in your ends? I have a tutorial for that!

PS – there really isn’t that many loose ends in this project! It probably took me a total of 30 minutes to weave in my ends.
The Blue Eared Bunny is finished! And just as cute as his sister bunny 🙂
