Free crochet bunny brooch pattern
Say hello to spring with this super-cute crochet brooch pattern in the shape of an adorable amigurumi bunny!

Worked in the round, this crochet bunny brooch by Becky Garratt uses easy-peasy double crochet stitches, with a touch of simple embroidery for her face. The pink colour is so pretty, but you could use all kinds of pastel shades to make a family of sleepy crochet bunny brooches!
