This Easter, give the perfect gift with a crochet chocolate bunny pattern! This pattern is easy to follow and is sure to delight the recipient of your special gift. With just a few materials and some creativity, you can create a unique and adorable bunny that will make anyone smile.
I just LOVE Easter! No matter how old I get I still delight in the idea of an Easter basket and the star of course is the chocolate bunny. I used my annual favorite chocolate bunny my sister in law sends me from Europe as inspiration. I drew it out in my graphics program and it looks just like my favorite holiday treat!
This versions is a white and dark chocolate bunny pair. Two bunnies are better than one!
If you like charts, I have included the drawing in chart form in the paid pattern. It also includes the small project tracker page which you can also download on this page for free. It is a sample of what my project tracker books are like which include pages for small, medium and large projects.
I have collected bunnies since my childhood and even had one as a pet with a beautiful chinchilla colored coat and long black eyelashes. A very glamourous bunny indeed!

I encourage you to use the free download of the small project tracker in this post to help you. While some rows are repeats, many have changes and you must follow the pattern to the letter. You will need to make two bunnies and they will need to match up like a mirror image. The project tracker page will help with that. I demonstrate how in the video tutorial.

Cut end of first bunny, do not cut end of second half of bunny . Hold the stitch open with a stitch marker while you work the flowers onto the body. You will seam after the adornment is completed.
Add flowers to body before seaming
Using a tapestry needle, place scattered stitches of center flower color. Add in color petals in a star like pattern as show in video. Be careful to stitch the outside facing sides so when you sandwich them together for seaming the pretty sides face outward.
Stitch seaming to create chocolate mold look
Line up both sides with decorated side facing out and using the yarn still attached to second bunny half, begin to sc around the body to create the chocolate mold seam.
Stuff at the midway point to ensure you have access with your stuffing tool to fill each crevice. Continue to stuff sections as you close around the second side finishing the ear stuffing with a wide enough opening to work in filling and stuffing tool.
Cut yarn and weave in end.
