Free Crochet Pattern-- Bunny Keychain



Perfect for Easter and spring, this simple and quick bunny Amigurumi can be an accessory to your keys, purses, and book bags. Who can resist a cute bunny?

Mild tempered, timid, fluffy and cuddly bunnies would be a dream pet. But in household like mine, the poor bunnies would probably end up with strokes from being chased by little terrors; A.K.A my children.

Amigurumi is definitely something I struggle with as a designer. Not because I find it difficult to design, but because I absolutely hate tapestry work and working with tiny stitches. When I talk with Amigurumi designers, they tell me stories of crochet hooks breaking. I was shocked that it is fairly a common thing that happens to Amigurumists. So kudos to all of you makers who mainly make Amigurumi. You have my respect.
