Hello, hi & welcome back! I am so excited to share my Peep Bunny Free Crochet Pattern with you! These are quick and easy to whip up and make the perfect addition to an Easter Basket or strung together as an adorable festive garland!
Each Peep Bunny consists of a front and back which are joined together with single crochet and a layer of light stuffing inside. The finished peep measures approximately 6" tall. This pattern could easily be adjusted to create a larger bunny by using larger yarn and a larger crochet hook.

Tie off, pulling through the chain stitch to secure.
Join to the other side and repeat rows 14-20.
Weave in all the loose ends.
Peep Bunny Assembly:
Insert the safety eyes on one side of the body.
Beginning at the bottom right corner, join the front and back of the body with a round of single crochet.
*Exceptions to the Round of Single Crochet:
Slip stitch in the stitch where the head begins and at the bottom left and right of the ear. This means there will be two slip stitches in a row in between the ears at the base.
At the tops of the ears, chain 1, SC into the top, chain 1, continue SC-ing around.
Before closing off completely, add light stuffing.
Complete the join.
Tie off and weave in loose end.
I hope you have enjoyed crocheting peep bunnies with me!
