Easter is only a week away and if your baskets are looking a little sparse, have no fear! Marshmallow bunnies are here! These little guys are so easy and quick you’ll have those baskets packed to the brim in no time and you have to admit they’re pretty darn cute too. Make a momma bunny with a super bulky yarn and a K Hook and her little baby bunnies with a worsted weight yarn and a D Hook.
Amigurumi Marshmallow Bunny Pattern
- K or D Hook
- Super Bulky or Worsted Weight Yarn in color of bunny and a shade of pink
- 10 mm or 6mm safety eyes
- Sewing thread or embroidery floss for embroidering mouth and needle
- Ch – Chain
- Sl – Slip Stitch
- Sc – Single Crochet
- ScInc – Single Crochet Increase, 2 single crochets in one stitch
- Sc3Inc – 3 single crochets in one stitch

** Don’t forget! This pattern is worked amigurumi style, never joining rows. It wouldn’t hurt to mark your rows with a stitch marker or piece of scrap yarn, so as not to lose your place! **
Row 1 – Make a magic circle and Sc 6 times. (6)
Row 2 – ScInc in every Sc around. (12)
Row 3 – Sc, (Sc3Inc, Sc, Sc) 3 times, Sc3Inc, Sc. (20)
Row 4 – Sc, Sc, (Sc3Inc, Sc in next 4) 3 times, Sc3Inc, Sc, Sc. (28)
Rows 5 – 13 – Sc in every Sc around. (28)
Now is the easiest time to give your marshmallow bunny a face. Keep in mind that Row 1 is the top of the bunny’s head and the beginning of the row is the back of the bunny. Insert safety eyes between Rows 7 & 8. Embroider a mouth in the expression of your choice over Row 9 or 10.
Row 14 – In back loops only, Sc, (ScDec, Sc, ScDec, Sc, Sc) 3 times, ScDec, Sc, ScDec, Sc. (20)
Row 15 – ScDec, (Sc, ScDec twice) 3 times, Sc, ScDec. (12)
Stuff that bunny!
Row 16 – ScDec around. (6)
Fasten off leaving a long end. Use the end to make a couple of whip stitches for closing the small opening. Fasten off again and work in the end.
Marshmallow Bunny Ears
Make 2 in the same color as the body
Make 2 using pink for Row 1 and the body color for Row 2.
Row 1 – Sc in 2nd Ch from hook and in next 2 Chs. Sc3Inc turning as you go. Now working in bottom loops of beginning Chs, Sc in next 2, ScInc in last Ch. (10)
Row 2 – (ScInc, Sc, Sc, ScInc, Sc) twice. (14)
Leave long ends for sewing on two pieces and work in the ends on the other two. Place 2 pieces wrong side together and use the long end to whip stitch them together through Row 2. Use the remainder of the long end to whip stitch the ears onto the top of body from Row 1 to Row 4.
There’s only one thing left to do and that is make this sweet, little bunny’s pompom tail. You can use a pre-made pompom and glue it onto the back of the body, but if you are interested in making your own matching tail click this link for a smashing YouTube tutorial and sew it right on.
You just made a Marshmallow Bunny!
