Sun is shining, birds are singing, spring is in the air! It already feels like Easter is coming so I decided to make a super easy and fun bunny crochet pattern. Not a regular one. “Among us’ style Amigurumi Bunny. Say hello to Mr Funky!
I must say that I couldn’t really understand the whole craziness that sparked around ‘Among us’. Not until the Love of My Life stared getting excited about it.. You know, I sort of had to follow eventually 🙂
After a while I figured those characters are pretty cool and ‘Among us’ style toys and amigurumis actually look really cute. Therefore, I decided to make an Easter Bunny ‘Among us’ style. To make it even more ‘Easter’y’ the backpack is open and filled with colorful Easter eggs.
In summary, in this post I will:
- Firstly, provide information related to supplies needed to complete this amigurumi bunny,
- Secondly, lay out couple of notes related to reading the crochet pattern,
- Finally, provide the actual pattern details.
Sooo… without further ado – let’s get started!
‘Among Us’ style Amigurumi Bunny
Supplies needed to crochet the bunny
This time I again decided to use Yarn Art Jeans. I figured this should be an easy pattern so wanted to use something that would be pleasant to work with for the beginners. Generally I tend to use this yarn for easier projects, like for example Free Llama Crochet Pattern.
Yarn Art Jeans is made of cotton and acrylic. In essence, this composition makes the yarn soft and pleasant. It’s more elastic than pure cotton and doesn’t split while crocheting, therefore it’s ideal for newbies and less experienced crocheters and knitters. Additionally, they offer many colors to choose from.
I used following yarn colors:
- 42 „Raspberries” (I will call it ‚pink’) – 2 skeins
- 01 „White” (I will call it ‚white’) – 0.5 skein
- 81 „Aqua” (I will call it ‚blue’) – 0.2 skein
- 53 „Black” (I will call it ‚black’) – few meters
(Note: black is used for muzzle finishing and embroidery only therefore you can replace it with any other black yarn that you happen to have at home).
On top of the above you will need multiple pieces of other colors for making Easter eggs. I used Yarn Art Jeans scrap pieces I had at home, however, you can use any other yarn too.
Based on my experience and similarity of characteristics, I would recommend following yarns as a substitute for completion of amigurumi Bunny: Alize Cotton Gold, Gazzal Baby Cotton, Scheepjes Softfun or Bernat Cottonish. Please bear in mind that you may need to adjust yarn quantities needed if you decide to go with a substitute yarn.
If you need a hand in finding yarn substitutes then you may want to read my blog post on yarn weights.
Accessories needed to complete amigurumi bunny
Additionally, you will need following accessories to make our lovely soft toy:
- Crochet hook – 3mm (US D-3)
- Stitch markers
- Toy fiberfill (Note: if you wish to explore some more options then have a look at my Stuffing for Toys blog post)
- Tapestry needle
- Row counter
- Creative foam, felt or toy shaping wire.
Finally – I added a heart shaped button on the bunny’s belly. Simply because the front side looked a bit dull so I wanted to place something cute there. However, you can skip this step if you want.

Important Notes to Amigurumi Bunny Crochat Pattern
FINISHED MEASUREMENTS (without EARS)
- 25 cm (~ 10 inches) tall
- 15 cm (~ 6 inches) wide
- 13 cm (~ 5 inches) deep
21 sts/24 rows = 10cm/4 inches square in single crochet
- Mr – magic ring
- Sc – single crochet
- Inc – 2 in one
- Decr – 2 together
- Ch – chain
- Slp st – slip stitch
- First, recommended hook size for ‘Yarn Art Jeans’ yarn is 3.5mm (US E-4), but I am using 3mm (US D-3) one. This is because we want the stitches to be very condensed so that toy stuffing doesn’t shine through.
- Second, when working in rounds work continuously unless instructed otherwise.
- Third, for assembly utilize seamless joining method to make the toy look neater.
- Lastly, at the end of each row, in brackets, I included a number which represents the total number of stitches in a given row. It should help tracking if instructions are followed.

Amigurumi Bunny Crochet Pattern
In summary, this pattern is super easy. First we start with legs, then we join them and proceed with making body. Subsequently we create muzzle, ears, backpack and a tiny tail. Finally, we make colorful Easter eggs. We use 3mm (US D-3) hook for all parts.
Make 2 using pink yarn.
- 6 sc in mr
- Row 1: * inc * repeat 6 times (12)
- Row 2: * 1 sc, inc * repeat 6 times (18)

- Row 4: * 3 sc, inc * repeat 6 times (30)
- Rows 5 through 19: 30 sc (30)
For the first leg – fasten off and weave in yarn tail. In case of the second one – once you have done the last stitch chain 4 and connect to the first leg. To do so make one single crochet in any of the stitches in the top row. Additionally, mark this stitch – it will be the first one of the body.
Amigurumi Bunny Body
Make using pink yarn, continuing after joining legs.
Our first row is made into the top row of joined legs. First, row 1 is made of 68 stitches, crocheted around. Second, each leg had 30 sc in the top row, for joining legs we added 4 chains and we will work around them now. Therefore, our first row consists of 68 stitches (30 plus 4 plus 30 plus 4).
- Rows 1 through 3: 68 sc (68)
- Row 4: 20 sc, inc, 3 sc, inc, 14 sc, inc, 3 sc, inc, 24 sc (72)

Once complete, attach muzzle to the body. In order to do this place top of the muzzle around row 39 of the body, bottom around row 28. Lastly, stuff the muzzle before closing completely.
Amigurumi Bunny’s Ears
Make 2, of course 🙂 Each ear consists of one white component, one pink component and a stiffening material. I used creative foam, however, felt or shaping wire should also work here.
You need to make 2 in white and 2 in pink:
- Row 1: Beginning from the second chain from the hook 8 sc (8), ch 1, turn
- Row 2: inc, 7 sc (9), ch 1, turn
- Row 3: inc, 8 sc (10), ch 1, turn

Lastly, fasten off.
For pink components cut yarn and weave in. In case of the white ones – do not cut yarn, we’ll continue using it for connecting all parts.
Connecting ear parts
Using white yarn work around all three parts put together. The stiffening material should be inserted between pink and white components. Make single crochet stitches on three sides and then sew the bottom – as shown on the images below. When sewing up bottom part make sure to catch also the stiffening material.
Afterwards connect ears to the body. First, place them on top, leaving an inch or so in the middle so that there is a small gap between both ears. Then, using black yarn, embroider nose on the muzzle. Optionally also sew in a decorative button.
Make using pink yarn. We start with making a rectangle bottom and then we crochet around to create a container-like shape.
- Chain 21
- Row 1: Beginning from the second chain from the hook 20 sc (20),ch 1, turn
- Rows 2 through 6: 20 sc (20), ch 1, turn
- Row 7: Crochet around the rectangle shape using front post single crochet. Make 52 sc.
From now on we crochet around, therefore don’t turn at the end of each row.
- Rows 8 through 25: 52 sc (52)
Fasten off and leave tail for sewing. After that, attach backpack on the back side of the body (duh!). Note that the top of the component should be placed around row 33 of the body and the bottom part should be around row 15 level.
Amigurumi Bunny’s Tail
Make using white yarn.
- 6 sc in mr
- Row 1: 6 sc (6)
- Row 2: * inc * repeat 6 times (12)
- Row 3: 12 sc (12)
- Row 4: * decr * repeat 6 times (6)
Lastly, fasten off and leave tail for sewing. Afterwards, attach tail below the backpack.
Use colorful yarn. I made 6 striped eggs, however, feel free to make as many as you wish. Of course, Easter eggs sit in the Bunny’s backpack.
- 6 sc in mr
- Row 1: * inc * repeat 6 times (12)
- Row 2: * 1 sc, inc * repeat 6 times (18)
- Rows 3 through 6: 18 sc (18)
- Row 7: * 7 sc, decr * repeat 2 times (16)
- Row 8: * 6 sc, decr * repeat 2 times (14)
- Row 9: * 5 sc, decr * repeat 2 times (12)
- Row 10: * 4 sc, decr * repeat 2 times (10)
- Row 11: * 3 sc, decr * repeat 2 times (8)
- Stuff up if needed.
- Row 12: * 2 sc, decr * repeat 2 times (6)
Lastly, fasten off and weave in yarn end. Afterwards, place eggs in the back pack.
Question about toy assembly
First attach the muzzle, then ears, then backpack and lastly the tail.
I am very often asked why we don’t embroider nose before attaching the muzzle to the body. It would be easier, right? Well.. Not quite. If you did that then you would be running a risk that the face would be skewed after stuffing. As a general rule – you first stuff your component and then embroider. This way you add details on a shape that is already made so the risk of misplacing the décor is smaller.
Likewise, embroidering the nose after attaching ears also makes sense. In essence, we want the nose to be in the middle and it’s way easier to manipulate the position of the nose than it is for ears.
And this is it – you have your Funky the ‘Among Us’ style Bunny ready! I really hope you enjoyed the pattern as it is super easy, but please let me know if you need any help!
