DIY: Crochet Bunny Containers

EN

Firstly: rest in peace J. Cruijff, a Dutch legendary football player. Your dead came so unexpected. I was sitting on the public bus today and overheard someone saying “a footballer died today huh?!”, never knew it was Cruijff that the person was talking about until I came home and saw it on the news.

Ok.
Lets make mini stuffed bunny for Easter! All you need for this DIY is basic amigurumi crochet skills and a Kinder Egg plastic shell. And you don’t even need fibre stuffing either! Maybe a stuffed bunny with chocolate eggs inside.

Happy to have a long Easter weekend break this upcoming one!

Allereerst: rust in vrede J. Cruijff! Je dood was onverwachts. Ik zat namelijk vandaag in de bus en hoorde iemand zeggen “een voetballer is overleden hè?!”. Ik wist niet over wie ze het hadden maar eenmaal toen ik thuis kwam en het nieuws zag wist ik het.

Laten we een zacht en lief mini konijntje haken voor Pasen! Alles wat je nodig hebt voor deze DIY is je basic amigurumi skills en een Kinder Surprise Ei maar dan het plastic omhulseltje. Je hebt geen vulling nodig maar misschien wel een gevuld konijntje met chocolade eieren binnen.

Alvast een fijn lang paasweekend allemaal!

A piece of nostalgia in my hand these Kinder Egg! The plastic container that holds the toy got a little upgrade it seems because they all have a hinge.

Step by step



You need
2.5 mm hook pen, cotton yarn (I used Phildar Cotton 3), pair of scissors
Body

R1. Magic loop + 6 ch
R2. 2x sc in each stitch (12)
R3. 1x sc, 2x sc (18)
R4. 1x sc, 1x sc, 2x sc (24)
R5 - R11. 1x sc (24)
R12. chain extra, turn your work and single crochet in the next 3 stitches (this will be the hinge). Add 21 chains and connect with the last chain with the beginning stitch of this row. There, you have a circle now!
R13 - R17. turn your work again and 1x sc (24)
R18. 1x sc, 1x sc, 1x dec (18)
R19. 1x sc, 1x dec (12)
R20. 1x dec (6), leave a tail and seam off the small hole.

Ears - make two

R1. start with a good tail and chain 11
R2. (start in the 10th st) dc in the next 2 st , hdc in the next 3 st, sc in next 4 st, slst in last st
R3. turn where we are crocheting around our by sc all stitches. Except the top stitch (top of the ear): 3x sc in that stitch then continue 1x sc till the end. Leave a tail.

Attach the ears to the body by knotting the 2 tails together.

My Easter chocolate for this year are almonds dipped chocolate with cinnamon and icing sugar coating.
