Free Crochet Pattern: Amigurumi Bunny Basket
Created By: S SweetAdelaide
Pattern Source: other:

Stumped as to what to bring to a Good Friday lunch when the kind hostess said to bring nothing but ourselves, this Lion Brand pattern was perfect: adorable, (relatively) easy (see below) and quick to make. Initially, I added a gauze flower because my pal loves pink, but on GF morning when I filled the bunny with the small choccy eggs I'd bought, they all but disappeared inside the head, despite a generous fill of pink tissue "straw." In South Australia, most shops are shut on GF, so there was nowhere close I could go for a bigger choccy treat and there was no time to crochet anything else, so I resorted to making some pink origami Easter lilies to give the project some visual height and interest. And if I do say so myself, the basket was received with much enthusiastic appreciation. Thank you so much!
I did have to fake the ears, since for some reason, I always ended up with round Koala ears (I live in Oz now) instead of long bunny ears, and then had to stiffen them with a white pipe cleaner threaded through each one's stitches vertically. And as another maker of the pattern noted, I also found the handle too floppy. I stiffened it by folding it lengthwise on itself and whip-stitching it closed.
