Today, I want to share a pattern for a small baby rabbit, which is done very quickly. It makes a perfect keychain or charm, because it is so small. But of course you can also keep it as a small toy or even put it into  the advent calendar of your kids. But let’s go!

You’ll need:

  • About 1/4 of a skein of yarn in your main colour (I use brown)

  • crochet hook, which is too small for your yarn (I use 2.5 when 3.5 is recommended
  • filling
  • scissors and needle

If you want to turn it into a keychain, just crochet a chain of 10 to the head (right behind the ears) and close it to a loop with 1 sl. Then sew up all ends.
