Materials:

  • #4 weight yarn in 2 colors. I used caron simply soft and required one skein of each color.
  • 5mm hook
  • Stitch markers (recommended)
  • Scissors
  • Tapestry needle
  • 16” pillow form

Gauge:

Using C2C in the dc stitch as your gauge stitch, 2’’x 2’’ is 3 blocks x 3 blocks

Size:

Fits 16” pillow form

Abbreviations:

  • Col A – Color A – this is the background color
  • CA – color A – this is the background color
  • ColB–Color B–this is the bunny
  • CB–Color B–this is the bunny
  • FO—fasten off

 

Pattern Notes:

  • Written in US terms
  • This pattern is reversible so if you carry any yarn remember to work over it as you go. It is not recommended to carry yarn for more than a few C2C blocks.
  • This is a traditional C2C graph and is worked diagonally from the bottom right-hand corner. It ends at the top left-hand corner.
  • To work out how much yarn you will need you will need to do a sample swatch and then measure how much yarn you used per C2C block multiplying that by the number of blocks of that color and adding some for the tails to be worked in at the end.
  • Color charts with stitch totals are listed under the picture graph on the next page.

Color Block Instructions for the front of the bunny pillow

For the back panel of the bunny pillow

Sew in your ends and then you are ready to assemble your bunny pillow!

Assembly:

Step 1:          Take your front and back panels and place wrong sides together (this means that the right sides will be facing outwards).

Step 2:          SC around three sides of your cushion ensuring that you sc through both the front and the back panels.  At each corner (sc, ch1, sc). Do NOT work the last side yet.

Step 3:          Insert pillow form into cushion (see photo below) and then continue to sc along the last side. This might be a little trickier as you have the pillow form to work around too.  Slip stitch to the first stitch you made. Do not fasten off yet!

Step 4:          Crab stitch in each sc and ch1 space around. SS to join

Fasten off and weave in ends.

  • What an adorable pattern! I can’t wait to make it. I made a baby blanket a little over a year ago, but your first video was a great refresher. I’ve never worked from a graph and am excited to try it. Your instructions are excellent. Thank you!
