Easter Bunny Special – Jiffy Miffy!

I’m a little miffed this morning despite it being Easter Sunday, a day of celebration. Because the Good Husband has been called back for reservist duties this fortnight and he has to be away on Sunday, a day where we otherwise usually roam the island for food or commiserate in the challenges of living with a feisty toddler. Baah! Pfft.

So anyway, I whipped out my trusty bamboo hooks for a little hookie-fun and decided, hey, let’s make a super quick, jiffy Miffy Easter Bunny! It turned out to be really simple and fun to make, especially to adorn children’s clothes and bags though I think I’ll likely keep this bunny brooch for meself and make a few more for some close bunnybuddies, haha. So here it is, I hope you enjoy it and if you are hard-pressed of time like I am always hands-full with an energiser bunny toddler, all you need is eke out 15-20 minutes to get this cute gift done for a little one or friend.

Tools & Materials:

- crochet hook 4.5 mm
– white cotton yarn (I used Sewinlove’s Cotton Party yarn)
– black yarn for facial details (I used embroidery floss)
– small brooch pin
– scissors, sewing needle and tapestry needle

Pattern for Easter Bunny, the Jiffy Miffy:

///To make head

Rnd 1: Start with a magic ring. 6 sc. Do not join to first sc with ss as we will work in a spiral fashion instead of discrete rounds. Close the ring by pulling the tail end. Mark first stitch of each rnd with stitch marker.

Rnd 2: Work 2 sc in each sc. [12 sc]

Rnd 3: Repeat (1 sc in next st, 2 sc in next st) to end of rnd. [18 sc] Ss to next sc just to ‘close’ this final rnd for the head.

///To make ears

Rnd 4:  #Ch 9. Sk next 2 ch, then working into the bump of each ch instead of under the v for the following stitches, work dc2tog in the next 2 ch, dc2tog in the next 2 ch,  1 dc in the next ch, 1 hdc in the next ch, 1 sc in the next ch, ss to the immediate next sc at the base of the ear to fasten down the first ear to the head.

Repeat from # to make second ear. Then, fasten off!

Embroider bunny face as your heart desires. I used french knots for eyes and a simple nose and mouth.

Sew on a small brooch pin at the back, taking note to sew as high up the back of the head as possible instead of dead-centre. This helps prevent droopiness. Done! :D
