Huggie Bunnies are back!

And this time they come armed with crochet hooks.

Well actually, with any luck they come armed with yummy chocolatey Easter treats, but the good news is that they are no longer just available to the knitters.  Now the crocheters can get in on the act too.

Ever since I made up those cute knitted little bunnies two years ago I've been meaning to make a crochet version.  It's always the way isn't it?  You crochet but don't knit and all you see are gorgeous knitted things.  Or you do knit but you don't crochet and then you're surrounded by lovely crocheted things.  I guess that's why so many of us end up  dabbling in both.  The best of both worlds maybe?



So, in the spirit of spreading Easter goodness far and wide, it is only fair that the Huggie Bunnie's twin skills of looking cute and whilst harbouring a sweet secret should be available to all.

Equality and delicious chocolate, that is the Huggie Bunnie philosophy.



And to symbolise this all encompassing feeling of equality the Crochet Huggie Bunnies have taken things a step further.  They can hold Cadbury's Egg size treats, every bit as well as their knitted counterparts but they can also be made to fit in larger eggs too.  Just to pluck a name out of the air at random, maybe a Kinder Surprise Egg would work rather well should you care to try it.



So, to my crocheting friends, who missed out first time around, grab your hooks in hand.  Rummage around for some yarny scraps and enjoy whipping up a quick Bunnie ready for Easter.

And for my knitting friends, you can find the original Huggie Bunnies pattern following the links below too.

The patterns contain written directions for making the bunnies and includes photos to help you with ear construction and face making.



I hope you enjoy them and I shall hope to see some bunnies popping up around the place.  After all, you know what they say about bunnies multiplying!

If you'd like to share your Bunnies in the Cherry Heart Ravelry Group, we'd love to see you there...

  4. Cute! I'm not really a Easter "getting-in-to-it-all" person... But this year I've been thinking a lot about making egg cozies and Easter doilies and crochet leaves for my Easter twigs and... You get it. These are fun to hide sweets in. I'm sure my kids would end up in a big fight to get into as many Bunnies as possible. Ha!
