Spring is coming in a few weeks! Flowers and trees will bloom, and this is the season when all the baby animals make an appearance, including these adorable bunnies. And, with Easter on the horizon, we’ve found inspiration for a sweet gift idea for the little ones in your life. Get out your crochet hooks and knitting needles, because you won’t be able to resist sewing this collection of bunny ear hats!
Whether you have a child in your family or even an adult who likes comfy clothes, there’s a bunny hat pattern here for you. All of these crochet and knitting patterns come from the designers at Etsy who offer instantly downloadable patterns, so you can enjoy your gifts right away.
Let’s start with the smaller bunny models. From the PrettyDarnAdorable Esty shop, this is a crochet pattern for a slouchy bunny hat and diaper cover. We don’t know if we love the ears or the pink bunny more! You get both patterns for just $4.99 and the hat pattern can be tailored for everyone from newborns to adults. This is a beginner level project that uses super bulky yarn, so it should fall into place quickly.
If you’re looking to use up some of your yarn collection, consider this simple yet valuable Easter bunny hat crochet project from the Esty ChummyMummyDevon shop. This pattern is perfect for hat sizes newborn up to about 3 years old. It costs $2.13 as a digital download and is written in standard US crochet terms with a UK table for conversions.
For older kids (and the kids at heart), there are also a few options to put together. First up is this anthropologically inspired knit bunny hat pattern from the Esty KnitsByAmandaBrown store. Available for $5.50, this knitting pattern can be used to make a beanie for newborns, babies, and children with a head circumference of 17 to 21 inches. It also comes with video tutorials for every step of the project!
Finally, we have a template just for adults, because who says all fun things have to be for kids? The NerdyHooksByLaura Etsy shop has this fabulous bunny lop hat crochet pattern on sale for just $3! Inspired by the designer’s favorite rabbit breed, the Holland lop, this long-eared beanie is an ideal pattern for sewing beginners. The instantly downloadable pattern contains the full list of materials and is written with easy-to-understand instructions.
There’s plenty of time to knit or crochet one (or more) of these beautiful bunny hats for your friends, family members, or even yourself before Easter, which is April 17th this year. Grab your yarn and other gear and have fun!
