Bixie the Bunny Crochet Rattle Free Pattern

Crochet Bunny Baby Rattle

Easter is around the corner and it’s time for the Easter Bunny to make an appearance! So we decided that we had to crochet a bunny rattle to match our Bixie the crochet bunny stuffed toy. Rabbits are not only super cute animals (hello – who can resist these little balls of fur!) but they are also some of the easiest animals to crochet! A win-win – yay!

If you’re looking for something to crochet for a baby this Easter (or any other time of the year!), this little crochet rabbit rattle will make an adorable gift for the little one in your life. Don’t miss the rest of the baby rattles in our series.

About this Bunny Crochet Rattle Pattern

This amigurumi bunny baby rattle stands at approximately 7.5 inches tall. It is an easy amigurumi pattern for beginners. The rattle head and stem are crocheted in one piece and the nose and mouth are embroidered on. So the only sewing that is required are the ears – making it a virtually no sew amigurumi pattern! Yay!

This bunny rabbit rattle is crocheted with a stem made up of four balls. The stem is designed for an easy grip for your baby. Plus, you can vary the colours of the balls – so it would make a really cute matching gift to a blanket or any other crochet gift you have made for a newborn.

The pattern works up really fast – in just a couple of hours. So if you’re looking to crochet a last-minute baby gift, it’s super easy to whip up! You can also pair the rattle with our Bixie the Bunny amigurumi stuffie for a super adorable crochet gift for your next baby shower!
