With the success of the Llama Love Pillow, I decided to create another pillow: A Bunny version! This crochet bunny pillow is perfect for Easter and the Spring season… plus it’s really easy to crochet! You will follow a pixel graph (one square in the graph = one single crochet stitch) and make two panels. Stitch on a bunny face and add crochet ears to the front. Then single crochet the panel edges together over a store bought pillow form. Think of all the color options! I think a green one would be super cute!
– Red Heart Super Saver Yarn in Colors:
Lilac (or Lavender)
Shop all the colors HERE on Yarnspirations.com
– A bit of black yarn or embroidery thread
– Size H Crochet Hook
– Pixel Graph HERE
– 14 x 14 Poly-fil Premier Pillow Insert
Finished size is approximately 15 x 15 inches
You will crochet one of these panels using the pixel graph and any color you’d like for the background and white for the bunny head. Make sure you have a square when you are finished. I had to add on an extra 5 rows to mine (for a total of 50 rows). I used Lilac color yarn for the background and white for the head.
Make a starting chain of 46 with lilac color, SC in second chain from hook and the rest of the way down chain, you should have a total of 45 SC stitches. This is the bottom row of your pixel graph. One square is equal to one Single Crochet stitch. Follow the graph and SC in rows to make the square with the bunny head. You can carry your yarn through or use two balls of the pink to crochet on either side of the white body.
Crochet a second SC panel that is the same size (about 15×15 inch square) without the head graph. Just a solid color. I used pale plum for the backside of my pillow.
Now make the embellishments!
