Mimi the Bunny Amigurumi

Learn how to crochet a very cute bunny amigurumi with this easy and fast to make free bunny crochet pattern. This small project is very suitable for beginners that want to learn how to crochet an amigurumi.
You can make mimi the bunny from any yarn that you like. I made it in cotton and chenille yarn, the cotton one is very small, the chenille one is much larger, these two bunnies are both made with the same crochet pattern.

If you want to crochet a big plush toy within a few hours, use big chunky yarn and crochet hook and you will have made a cute gift very fast! It will take about 2-3 hours to make.

Materials:

These are the materials that I used. You can replace them with other materials. If you wish to crochet a larger or smaller version of this bunny amigurumi, you just use a thicker or thinner yarn/crochet hook.

Small Mimi the bunny: 9 cm / 3 inch
Big Mimi the Bunny 21 cm / 8 inch

Pink cotton – catania color: 409
Black Cotton – catania color: 110
Red Cotton – catania color: 115

Synthetic Poly filling
1 pair black safety eyes: 8 mm

The big bunny amigurumi (21 cm / 8 inch) was made with chenille yarn (super bulky), 5.0 mm hook and 16 mm safety eyes.

TIP Chenille/Velvet or other similar yarn: The body of the bunny might look a bit to oval when crocheting it, don’t worry about it, it will be fine when you put stuffing in it.
