Crochet Pattern: Easter Egg-Bunny

By Amy Lynn Yarbrough – 10 Comments
A new twist on eggs and bunnies for Easter, the Egg-Bunny. Complete with stylish top hat.
My little sister watched as I made it, asking me questions like “Is it alive yet?” And I’d say “Not yet, I just have to finish its eyes”, and so on until finally I said “It’s done. NOW it’s alive.” She was thrilled and now she has another bunny to add to her collection! Happy Easter!
