Easter Bunny Blanket Buddy

Posted on March 18, 2012

Here are one Easter craft projects that I have been working on. It is a blanket buddy that I crocheted for my newest granddaughter’s first Easter. I crocheted it using this blanket buddy pattern but with some changes which I detail below.

I used a H (5 mm) hook and crocheted with double strands of off-white Caron yarn. I did 20 rows on the blanket before I began the decrease portion. I know many people have said the blanket pattern as written was small so I wanted to make mine bigger. My finished blanket is 17 inches wide by 18 inches long not including the bunny head.

I used black yarn to do the face. I worked on the face for quite some time and while I’m not completely happy with it, I’m finally calling it good. At least as good as I could get it.

One other important thing to note when working this pattern is that the hands are really hard to tie so make the ties a bit longer than the pattern calls for. Because if you are using double strands of worst weight yarn like I did, its really hard to get enough material to tie a knot.

Overall I enjoyed working this crochet pattern and found it easy to follow and the blanket even with the additional rows added, works up very quickly. So if you are looking for a Easter gift or a baby shower idea, you might want to check out this free crochet project.
