Honey Bunny the Realistic Rabbit · Amigurumi Crochet Pattern

This pattern has been in the works since the beginning of 2023, and now...at the end of the year, it's finally done. Whew! Please meet my take at a realistic rabbit: the Honey Bunny crochet pattern! 


Honey Bunny is a realistic and low-sew amigurumi dwarf rabbit pattern with a sweet bow around its neck.  Here's a video preview to show you the project and its features.

About the Pattern

  • Low-sew 
  • Quick to work up
  • Suitable for intermediate crocheters (familiar beginners are welcome to try as well; one of my testers was a beginner and finished the project easily!)
  • Size is approximately 5 inches in height (without ears), and 6.5 inches with upwards-pointed ears
  • Super versatile and customizable, with endless color combinations 
  • Style: Waldorf, Montessori, farmhouse, rustic, vintage, whimsical

Create Different Rabbit Breeds

It includes color change instructions to turn it into different breeds, such as a Dutch rabbit. You can also change the placement of the ears for a Holland Lop with cute, droopy ears.  


  • Pretend play toy for children 
  • Stuffed animal gift for bunny lovers 
  • Selling at craft fairs, markets, or boutiques as a high-end toy
  • For charity or random acts of kindness 
  • Nursery decor for baby rooms 
  • Birthday gift, holiday gift, or Easter gift 
  • Christmas stocking stuffer

As you can see, my little girl just loves this sweet Honey Bunny!


This pattern has been carefully tested by a team of crocheters of varying levels prior to publication.  Pattern testing is to ensure that the pattern is suitable for familiar beginners, free of errors, and easy to understand.  

One of the testers, @steve_notbark, is a beginner crocheter and was able to complete the project in confidence! Here's what he had to say about the pattern: 
Pattern was great and easy to follow. You can see from my pictures I made the pink in the ears go crooked, lost count on a couple rows, and my colour changes are pretty terrible… but it STILL looks super cute and is obviously a bunny.  The fact that your pattern could just absorb my errors and STILL be successful is amazing. It’s a real endorsement of how good your pattern is!! —@steve_notbark

Recommended Yarn

Surprise, surprise — I used Hobbii's Honey Bunny yarn to make this Honey Bunny! This plush, velvet chenille yarn makes such a soft and cuddly rabbit. However, you're welcome to try out different yarn fibers to create various looks, such as fur yarn, blanket yarn, wool, cotton, or acrylic.
