Cute Bunny Square: Free Crochet Cable Pattern

These cute little cabled bunnies were inspired by a knit pattern I found on Pinterest. (you can find it HERE). Immediately when I saw it I thought, hey I wonder if I could crochet that. It took a little trial and error to get it just right but it all finally worked out.

These little squares would be great for a baby blanket, an Easter project or anything else you can think of! I have also included instructions after the pattern on how to crochet these bunnies in rows.

This pattern is definitely not for a beginner but I have included a photo tutorial on how to work 1 bunny. A few weeks ago I put together a beginner’s guide to crochet cables you can check out if you need some tips!

I chose to use Lion Brand Wool-Ease worsted weight yarn for this square. I wanted something light with a little bounce to it. This is the color Blush Heather and I think it’s my new favorite pink! My advice if you are substituting yarns is to pick something a little on the thinner worsted weight side. If you want to use something like Vanna’s choice or Red Heart Super Saver I would recommend going up at least a hook size (take note this will affect your square size!)

If you would like to work only the cable bunny portion in rows chain a multiple of 9 +1 and repeat row 1-13.

If you choose to do either of these things take now where it says “repeat from * x amount of times” may have to be modified to accommodate your row length.
