Free Crochet Pattern: Chocolate Easter Bunny Mini-Plush!

CBhappyI have a super cute new (and quick and easy!) pattern for you guys! Chocolate Easter Bunny mini plushies!! You can use them as hair clips, brooches, ornaments, cupcake toppers, or just fun little Easter Basket-stuffers. I didn’t have time to crochet these in time for my Etsy shop to ship out before Easter, but at least the crocheters out there still have some time to make some of their own! One bunny takes me about 30 minutes from start to finish (including taking photos!).

ch6You can make chocolate bunnies of all different sizes depending on the yarn you want to use. While figuring out the pattern, I used a worsted weight, Lion Brand Vanna’s in Chocolate, which gave me a bunny that’s about 5 inches tall. My goal was to make something tiny and gold, like the chocolate bunnies wrapped in gold foil, so then I made one with Lion Brand Vanna’s Glamour in Gold, which gave me a bunny that’s about 3 inches tall.

Wrap them up in a little bit of cellophane and ribbon for a cute presentation! Enjoy!

Ch5EDIT: I just added a video tutorial for this on YouTube as well! 🙂 Here’s the link!

Chocolate Easter Bunny Mini-Plush
Designed by Twinkie Chan

Instead of using sc2tog or “dec” to decrease stitches in this pattern, I just skipped stitches instead to make the pattern as easy as possible!

Materials List

  • Crochet Hook: I used an H8/5.0mm hook for worsted weight yarn, and a G6/4.00mm hook for Vanna’s Glamour
  • Yarn: this is entirely up to you! I wrote the pattern for Lion Brand Vanna’s Glamour in Gold to make a small bunny, but you can really use whatever you want!
  • Small amount of polyfill. You can also stuff your bunny with extra yarn of the same color you worked in.
  • Optional: Small amount of thin ribbon to tie around your bunny’s neck.
  • scissors or yarn cutter
  • tapestry needle for weaving in ends

Exact gauge is not essential in this pattern.

Finished Size
Using LB Vanna’s Glamour: approx 3 inches tall and 2 inches wide
Using LB Vanna’s Choice: approx 5 inches tall and 3 inches wide

ch(s) = chain(s)
sc = single crochet

You’ve now completed one side of your bunny.

Bunny Side B

Repeat Bunny side A, except, at the very end, break off leaving about a yard of yarn to sew your bunny together and weave in the other ends.


CH3If you want to embroider a face or any details, do so now. Otherwise, just place one side on top of the other and whipstitch the edges together, using a little bit polyfill to stuff it as you go. I just like a little padding to give it some plumpness, but don’t overstuff it or you might warp the shape.

I like finishing mine off with a little red ribbon bow, which you can also sew or glue down for security.

  • Erica


    Great pattern! I’m going to make one for my Grandma. I bet she’ll love it. Thank you!

  • Fiona


    I love the gold wrapper look but I also love the chocolate guy even if he was made with the worst weighted yarn!

    p.s. I couldn’t tell, he just looks amazingly cute 🙂

  • Grace


    You should be arrested, Twinkie, for creating such cute items…sooner or later you’re gonna make us all explode from cuteness!!!!! 😉

    • TwinkieChan


      I’ll settle for someone handing me a million dollars. 😉 xoxo

  • Jess


    This is really just adorable. LOVE.

  • Pat


    Thanks for sharing! Can’t wait to make these for my nieces!

  • Heather Morrey


    The transition from row 9 to row 10 do not seem to work for me. There are only 7 stitches in row 9 and you need 8 to follow the instructions for row 10. Currently I’m not skipping between the 5 sc and the 1 sc. Am I’m missing something? Otherwise, a super fun pattern! I’m looking forward to checking out your other patterns.

    • TwinkieChan


      Hi! Did you remember to ch 2 at the beginning of Row 10? I put it in bold and blue to try to make it stand out.

      • Heather Morrey


        I did, and it took me a moment, but now I understand how to use them. It’s all good. My first two bunnies have fat necks, but my third will be amazing.

    • Heather Morrey


      You actually need 9 stitches in row 9 to do row 10.

  • sidony


    Great pattern! and happy easter 😉 from paris

  • dixiehellcat


    OMG, how freakin cute. Thanks for sharing the pattern! You rock. (my cousin agrees, every time he wears the bacon and eggs scarf I made him last Christmas from your book. lol!)

    • TwinkieChan


      Aw! I love hearing that guys wear the scarves too!

  • Oki


    Sooooooooooo~o cute bunny!
    Thanks for your free pattern.
    then… Isn’t there any difference between skip and decrease sts?
    I think if I don’t decrease as usual method, and I just skip the st, maybe there will be hole…

    • TwinkieChan


      Thank you, Renee!!! They really are super fun to make too!

  • Madeleine Hamblett


    Hey Twinkie chan! I’m starting off crocheting for the first time and I was just wondering what number ply wool I should use (e.g. 4 ply)? Also if you have a small project you’ve done! Thanks ur faboulos ^u^

    • TwinkieChan


      Hi! 4-ply is a good medium weight to start with while you get familiar with crocheting.

      I’m not sure what you’re asking for when you ask about a small project I’ve done?

  • April


    I was wondering if you would be okay with me crocheting this chocolate bunny for a chocolate-themed basket my homeroom is compiling for our school auction?

    • TwinkieChan


      Yes for sure!! 🙂

  • Briana


    Is there a way i can make the bunny taller? Do i use a bigger hook?

    • TwinkieChan


      The bunny will get bigger if you use a bigger hook and thicker yarn. Not necessarily taller, though… That would just be a different pattern.

  • nancy wilson


    I LOVE your pattern!!!
    I have been crocheting for 40+ years and would like to make a suggestion to improve your pattern…

    change row 16a to read skip 1 st…slip stitch in next 3 st…single in each of last 3 st (3)

    continue pattern on these 3 stitches. This makes the one ear rabbit that is traditional.
