Hello bunny lovers, want to get your Angie bunny beautifully made for Easter? I have a new bunny dress pattern for you today. I called it ‘Pretty in Pink’ and it is not just a beautiful bunny dress but also comfy and removable. It has a tiny little fabric button at the back so it is easy to take out. Pretty in pink is an easy pattern to make and Angie looks so cute wearing it. It makes her feel pretty but not too dressed. She likes to wear it when she goes out but also when she’s at home. In this dress she feels pretty enough to go to the front door if someone’s surprisingly comes to visit her. It happens a lot with bunnies. She likes to have friends for tea & cookies, she grows some tea herbs in her garden. I can tell you she is very happy when the sage blooms, at spring time.
The pretty in pink is a perfect spring – summer bunny clothing and a super cute tea time dress. Yes we will also make shoes today, to add some pretty to this pink bunny story, I can’t stand this gorgeous bunny styling, I’m telling you. So are you ready now for a step by step pattern with me? would you like to join a virtual workshop here with me today? come on lets get started.
WHAT DO YOU NEED
Yarn: GrannyKit cotton colour BabyPink, Rose & Berry.
Crochet hook: 2.5 mm
A pair of crafty scissors
Tapestry needle & stitch markers
Tiny fabric button ABREVIATIONS AND STITCHES (US crochet terms)
ch = chain stitch
st(s) = stitch(s)
rnd(s) = round(s)
yo = yarn over
lp(s) = loop(s)
*…* = repeat instructions between ** x times
sc = single crochet = insert hook, yo, pull the lp back through the st (2 lps on hook), yo and pull through both lps on hook.
hdc = half double crochet = yo, insert hook, yo, pull the lp back through the st (3 lps on hook), yo and pull through all 3 lps on hook.
To Start: ch 13 with colour BabyPink – leave about 15 cm yarn tail, we’ll need it later to sew the fabric button.
row 1: Hdc into the 3rd ch from hook, where I show on left below pic – counts as 2 hdc in first st. Hdc 2 in each st across. (22 sts)
row 2: ch 1 and turn, sc in first st, where I show on left below pic, sc in each st across. (22 sts)
row 3: ch 3 and turn, you’ve just made the button loop in the first st, now hdc in next 3 sts, make the first hdc at the point where I show with my sewing pin, in below left pic, ch 2, sk 3, hdc in next 8 sts, ch 2, sk 3, hdc in last 4 sts. (22 sts + 2 times ch2). We’ve just made the sleeves openings, as seen in right pic.
row 4: ch 1 and turn, sc in first 4 sts, the 4 sts I show on left below pic with my sewing pins, sc 2 in ch 2, sc in next 8 sts, sc 2 in ch 2, sc in last 4 sts. (20 sts)
row 5: ch 2 and turn (counts as first hdc), hdc in same st where your ch2 – see left pic, hdc 2 in each st across. (40 sts)
We will start working in rnds now.
rnd 1: Fold your work and sl st into the 2nd ch of your initial ch2, from last row – make it a circle (see left below pic). Ch 1 (counts as first sc), sc in each st around, sl st to first ch made. It will look like the right below pic at the end of this rnd. (40 sts) rnd 2: ch 2 (counts as first hdc), hdc in same st, where I show on left below pic, hdc in next 4 sts, *hdc 2 in next st, hdc in next 4 sts* repeat between ** to end, sl st to the 2nd ch of you initial ch2. (48 sts). It’ll look like the right pic at the end of this rnd. rnd 3: ch 1 (counts as first sc), sc in each st around, sl st in first ch made. (48 sts)
rnd 4: ch 2 (counts as first hdc in first st), hdc in each st around. Sl st in 2nd ch of your initial ch2. (48 sts)
rnd 5: ch 1 (counts as first sc), sc in each st around, sl st in first ch made. (48 sts)
rnd 6: ch 2 (counts as first hdc), hdc in each st around, sl st to 2nd ch of your initial ch2. (48 sts)
We will make the last rnd now, which is the pretty in pink edging.
rnd 7: ch 4 (counts as first hdc + ch2), hdc in same point (left pic), *sk 2 sts, into the next st make: hdc + ch2 + hdc – all into the same st* repeat between ** to end, sl st to 2nd ch of your initial ch4. Fasten off and weave in the tail. It should look as cute as this now. Put it on your bunny and see how cute she is wearing the pretty in pink dress. ohh waht a joy, bunny joy! You’re almost done, just one little button to add. Take your tiny fabric button and follow me. Thread a needle onto the yarn tail left from the beginning of the work. Place the tiny little fabric button opposite the button loop (left pic). Sew the button in place, using the plastic leg at the back of the button (right pic). Put the dress on your Angie bunny, from the legs up to the body, pull the hands through the sleeves openings and button it up. Make more ‘pretty in pink’ dresses for your Angie Bunny. You can change colour on the last rnd, as I did here on the Berry dress, the top one in the below pic. I think we need to go on making pretty in pink shoes now. For the ‘Pretty in Pink’ shoes: make the Nordic boots pattern, using colour Rose. Repeat rnds 1-12. On rnd 13 change to colour Berry and sc in each st around. Fasten off and weave in tails. Weave in tail as I taught you on Angie bunny first leg. That is all for today, bunny lovers, if you followed my tutorial with hook and yarn, your Angie bunny is a pretty in pink now. You made it!!
