This easy, free crochet pattern creates a Crochet Bunny from a Square. You can use any stitch and crochet any size square to make this bunny. A video tutorial is also provided.
How often do you scroll through Pinterest? Let’s be honest. We crafters, sure do it a lot. Whether it’s for inspiration or for checking what we pinned months ago. Well, a few months ago, I saw this fabric bunny made from a square. I got inspired, although I forgot to pin it. I knew when the time was right, I wanted to make a crochet bunny from a square. Now, that Easter is on its way, it’s the perfect time to publish this cutie.
I mean, isn’t it so amazing that you can create animals from simple shapes like a square, rectangle or triangle? This Bunny pattern sure inspires me to crochet more animals from shapes. I can’t wait to get started on those.
I used Premier Yarns Anti-Pilling yarn for this pattern, but you can use any yarn you wish. Really! Even a different weight of yarn will be fine.
In fact, you won’t need a special stitch for it either. It’s the perfect beginner project. You simply need to make a square – whether it’s crocheted or knitted, doesn’t even matter. The size of the square doesn’t matter either. Love that! So, are you ready to make your crochet bunny from a square?
So let me now get started and tell you what you will need in order to crochet this amazing pattern.
How to Make a Crochet Bunny from a Square
- Premier Yarn Anti-Pilling yarn is what I used
- 5.0 mm hook
- tapestry needle
- plastic eyes and nose (or sew them on)
Stitches used (US terms):

These are the stitches I used and I suggest as they make a tight texture. Don’t use any stitch with big gaps or holes.
- ch = chain
- sc = single crochet
- tss = Tunisian Simple Stitch
- tks = Tunisian Knit Stitch
Square in any size
Instructions for the Bunny
First, make a square (I made mine 12×12 inches for the pink bunny and 6×6 inches for the grey bunny). I used a Tunisian knit stitch for the pink bunny and a single crochet stitch for the grey bunny which you see in the video below.
I have a detailed video tutorial below showing how I created this bunny. But let me also tell you. First, you will weave a piece of yarn through the one half of the square that is in the shape of a triangle. Next, you’ll pull the yarn to crunch it up (add the poly-fill for the head and add the plastic eyes and nose if you chose them). Now fasten off tightly. Next, add poly-fill for the body and sew it up towards the bottom. Finally, weave the yarn through the edge of the bottom like you would for a hat and close it up.
When you’re finished, adjust the ears of the bunny (you might need to sew it a bit together like a shown in the video). If you did not choose the plastic eyes and nose, embroider them on at this stage. To complete the bunny, add a pom-pom right above where you closed the bottom part. Now you’re done.
This bunny is truly so cute. and snuggly. I created a big bunny as well as a little bunny. In fact, I made the little bunny in about 30 minutes, which includes crocheting the square for the bunny.

See what Angela, from my crochet group, said: “…Just today alone, I was speaking to a friend and mentioned this group to her because she’s having a hard time emotionally. I told her she needed to join so she can learn some cool crochet techniques and keep herself busy. You’re my first “go-to” group. Not only do you have some amazing ideas… But it’s you as a person that I can relate to. You’re kind, generous, and probably take things to heart more than you should (I do that too lol)… But you’re awesome! …”
