Bunnelby Pokemon Amigurumi Pattern

posted in: Free Amigurumi Patterns | 0

I wanted to crochet a bunny-like Pokemon for Easter. Since already have free patterns for Buneary and Scorbunny , I guess that leaves little Bunnelby!

Bunnelby is a goofy looking rabbit, it uses its ears as shovels to burrow below the ground. Indeed, the name Bunnelby comes from ‘tunnel’ and ‘bunny.’

When completed, Bunnelby is approximately 7″ tall (tail to tip of ears) and 3″ wide, and fits in the palm of one hand. I would recommend this pattern for intermediate-level crocheters as it involves color changing and using different types of stitches.

Assembly of Crochet Bunnelby

Assemble as shown in pictures- be sure to pin limbs in place before sewing to properly adjust position.

Head: Sew the two ears onto the head, separated by the width of the magic circle of R1 of the head.
Body: Sew the neck frill piece to the top of the body. Sew the arms to either side below the frill and the legs to either side of the body below the arms. Sew the feet over the end of the legs. Sew the tail to the back of the body. Finally sew the head on top of the neck frills.

Facial details were added by needle felting loose yarn ends . This technique was used to make the eyes, nose, teeth, whiskers, and pink parts of the ears.
