Easy Easter Bunny Worry Worm Crochet Pattern (FREE)
For Random Acts of Crochet Kindness

I just love Crochet Worry Worms and I try to make one for every occasion. Now that Easter is around the corner, I thought of making some bunny worry worms to leave out and about for people to find.

I wanted the simplest possible pattern that can be crocheted quickly and easily because I'm going to be making a lot of these!

If you're new to the idea of worry worms or to Random Acts of Crochet Kindness (RAOCK), you can have a look at this post where I explain why worry worms are so special and the movement behind RAOCKs.


And if you'd like to check out a little experiment I made about crocheting Corkscrew Spirals using different stitches & stitch counts, you can have a look at this post here.

Skill Level

Beginner – (knowledge of how to crochet a Magic Circle or alternative – please see options in instructions below).


Gauge = 13 sts & 4 rows in dc = 2.5" (5 cm)

Gauge is not really that crucial for this project. If you wish to have a smaller bunny, you can go down to a 2.5 mm hook. And if you’d like a larger one, then you could go up half or a whole number/letter hook size (suggestion: between letters C & D hooks).


This bunny measures is 5.1" (13 cm) tall including the ears &  1.18 " (3 cm) wide.


Approx. 7 meters (7.6 yards)


  • Numbers at the end of each step (in brackets) indicate the number of final stitches in that step.
  • Beginning Ch 2 counts as a dc st.
  • There is no stitching required in this pattern except for weaving in the ends.
  • Do not cut your yarn between the different sections of the bunny. Simply continue to the next body part.
  • I use US crochet terms. Here's a US/UK Conversion Chart

Stitch How-To Instructions

Instructions for Ch (Chain):
Bring the yarn over the crochet hook from back to front and hook it. Draw hooked yarn through the loop of the stitch on your hook and up onto the working area of your hook.

Instructions for sc (Single Crochet):
Insert hook into stitch, yarn over, pull the loop back through the stitch (you now have two loops on hook), yarn over again and pull through both loops on hook (note: this is equivalent to the UK Double Crochet (dc) stitch)

Instructions for hdc (Half Double Crochet):
Yarn over first, then insert hook into stitch, yarn over, pull the loop back through the stitch (you now have three loops on hook), Pull your working yarn over again and pull through all three loops on hook . You've now completed your hdc stitch. [Note: this is equivalent to the UK Half Trebble Crochet (htr) stitch]

Instructions for dc (Double Crochet):
Yarn over first, then insert hook into stitch, yarn over, pull the loop back through the stitch (you now have three loops on hook), Pull your working yarn over again and pull through two loops on hook . You now have 2 loops on your hook. Yarn over and pull through the last two loops on your hook. You are left with only one loop on your hooks, which means you've completed your dc stitch. (note: this is equivalent to the UK Trebble Crochet (tc) stitch)

Instructions for Sl St (Slip Stitch): Insert hook, yarn over, pull the loop back through your last stitch AND through the loop on your hook (through both stitches).

Instructions for Fastening Off: After the last stitch of the last round, cut the yarn, leaving a 6-inch end. Draw the cut end of your yarn completely through the stitch & pull to tighten knot.

How To Crochet A Bunny Worry Worm Instructions

Bunny Head Part I

Round 1: Option 1 (magic circle)

  • Start with a mc, ch 2, then work 11 dc into the mc. Join with a sl st to the top of your first ch 2 to form a circle (12).

Magic Circle


Ch 2, 11 dc into MC


Sl st to top of ch 2 to form a circle

Round 1: Option 2 (ch 3 circle)

Note: If you are not familiar with the Magic Circle (mc), then you can begin by tying a slip knot onto your hook

  • Ch 3. Join to first stitch with a slip stitch to form a circle (3).
  • Ch 2, then continue to work 11 dc stitches into the circle you just created (12).

Ch 3


Ch 2


Sl st to first st to form a circle


11 dc into circle & join


  • The first ch 2 counts as a dc, so when you work 11 more dc into the circle, you have a total of 12 dc for Round 1.
  • If you started with a MC, make sure you pull the tail nice & tight to give your bunny’s head a neat finish (closed center).
  • If you started with a ch 3 circle, you may have a small gap in the middle of your circle, which you can sew closed with a tapestry / darning needle when you finish crocheting your bunny.


  • Ch 21 - this will be the center of your bunny's body (21).

Ch 21

  • In the 2nd chain from your hook place 3 dc, then place 3 dc into each ch stitch all the way back up to the bunny's head (60).

3 dc into second ch from hook

Note: If you are working with thin yarn, then place 4 dc in each chain along the body (80).

Note: You will find that the body of your bunny will start to curl up naturally as you progress with your work. If the curls don't look right, simply twirl the curls around your finger to place them in a nice spiral.

  • Once you've reached the top of your bunny's body (nearest to its head), sl st into the same stitch from where you started your chain.

Sl St to Join body to head

Bunny Head Part II

  • Sl st into the next 4 sts around the right side of the bunny's head to reach the top of the head. Make sure you don't sl st too tight.

4 sl sts up the right side of the head

Bunny Ears (x 2)

  • Ch 7 (7).

Ch 7

  • Sc into the 2nd ch from your hook, hdc into the next 2 sts, dc into the next 2 sts, sc into the last st, sl st into the next st on the bunny's head to join (7).

End of first ear

  • Repeat for the second ear.

Bunny Head Part III (Finishing the Bunny's head)

  • Sl st into the next 4 sts down the left side the bunny's head (not too tight).
  • Sl st to join into the last st where the bunny's body started.

5 sl sts down the left side of the head, sl st to join to body.

  • Leave a 4 " tail, cut your yarn and fo.

Cut yarn leaving a 4" tail.

  • Weave in your ends at the back of the bunny's head with your darning needle.

The Bunny's Bow

  • Cut a piece of contrasting colored yarn about 6 " long.
  • Tie a shoelace bow around the bottom of the bunny's right ear.
  • Snip off the excess ends.

Tie a bow and snip off excess ends.

The Bunny Eyes

  • For these bunnies, I used some stick-on eyes that are actually meant for crafting. They are not safety eyes and so do not have anything protruding from the back.

Glue on the eyes

  • These of course are not suitable for children under 3 years old. If you are going to leave these bunnies out and about for people to find, you should include a note that this is not suitable for children under 3 years old (this note is included in the poem tags), and you could try alternative eyes, such as embroidered eyes or a French Knot. Here is a list of other eye options you may want to try.

Finishing Touches

  • If you feel your bunny’s body didn’t curl up properly, then twirl it around your finger one more time so that each curl falls nicely into place.

  • If you'd like your bunny to have a smile, you could try to embroider a mouth. I prefer my bunnies plain & simple, so I just kept them without.

And there you have it! Your very own easy peasy bunny worry worm. You can work these up in a jiffy once you get the hang of it. They're really great if you need to make lots for a classroom, care home or to add to Easter Baskets at a children's egg hunt.
