A perfect little cover for a creme egg and they look like a crochet rabbit – these cute little covers fit nicely over a chocolate creme egg.
Crochet Creme Egg Bunny Covers. ?
Perfect for any little person to hunt for on Easter Sunday.
I designed them using some inspiration from the local Local Hospice. Every year they run a campaign called Charlie Chick. I volunteered to make some chicks for them, if they had a crochet pattern, as I’m not a knitter, but they didn’t have one, so I played with some crochet instead!
This pattern is free right here, right now!
I also have created a Printable PDF of this pattern (which is the same as listed below but in a nice printer friendly format).
It will only cost a small fee of ?1.20 on the PDF as it takes a lot of work to create these patterns.

HDC – Half Double Crochet
MR – Magic Rong
sc – Single Crochet
2sctog – 2 Single Crochet together
Rabbit Ears – make 2
R1 – CH8, 1sc in the 2nd CH from the hook. HDC in the next 4 stitches, 1sc in the last 2 chain, finish off leaving longer ends for sewing together.
Rabbit Body – worked in the round
Start with a magic ring
Round 1: 6sc in the MR
R2: 2sc in each sc around. [12sc]
R3: (2sc in next sc, 1sc) 6 times. [18sc]
R4-8: 1sc in each [18sc]
Now is the time to sew the ears on the head, joining them onto the circle between rounds 2 and 3.
At this point – it’s easier to sew the eyes on too.
Eyes: Sew a v shape, starting in round 5, go diagonally down to round 6, then across one stitch, before sewing diagonally up to round 5 again. Leave a gap of 1 stitch before starting eye number 2 – repeating the same procedure.
Now it’s time to shape the neck.
R9: (2sctog in the next sc, 1sc) 6 times [12sc]
R10: (2sctog in the next sc), 6 times [6sc]
R11: 1sc in each sc [6sc]
R12: 2sc in each sc [12sc]
R13: (2sc in the next sc, 1 sc) 6 times [18sc]
R14-24: – 1sc in each sc [18sc]
How to make up
Add a small amount of toy stuffing to the head through the small gap.
Stuff the bottom of the bunny with a Caburys creme egg.
Add a bow to the bunnies neck, and fix a pom pom using glue to the bottom.
