There’s something so refreshing about the return of Spring, and with it, Easter. It’s a holiday that I absolutely love, pastel colours, bright sunshine, cute critters and chocolate. What’s not to love? It’s only right that I hop to it and decorate my house to celebrate. This year, I’m be hanging a beautiful crochet bunting strand – with a cute twist! Bunny bunting!

I’m so happy to welcome Lucy Dvejdet of @craftingbylucy onto my blog today to share her pattern for the most adorable crochet bunting I’ve ever seen. Just look at those cute little ears!

Whether you hook this up in a pretty pastel rainbow or a bright burst of colours, this is one project that’s sure to bring the joy of Spring into your house.

A pair of flags from crocheted bunny bunting sit beside a pink crochet hook and pastel coloured easter eggs.

But, I bet you’re hopping with excitement to get this bouncy bunny on your hook, so let’s get started!


Paintbox Cotton Aran in Ballet Pink (Yarn A), Dusty Rose (Yarn B), Peach Orange (Yarn C), Blush Pink (Yarn D), Washed Teal (Yarn E), Daffodil Yellow (Yarn F), Champagne White (Yarn G), Pure Black (Yarn H)

6 White Pom Poms – ready made

3.5mm crochet hook


Darning needle


Each Flag should measure approx: 3cm width x 4.5cm length

Ears will measure approx: 1.3cm width x 2.3cm length


Pattern is written in UK terms.

The bunting is made in 3 separate pieces, the flag first followed by 2 ears. These are then sewn on along with the pom pom.


Chain (ch): Yarn over, pull through one loop on hook.

Slip Stitch: (ss):  Insert hook, yarn over pull through stitch and loop on hook

Double Crochet(s): dc(s):  Insert hook into stitch, yarn over, pull up a loop, you will have two loops on the hook. Yarn over, pull through remaining two loops.

Unsure of the differences between UK and US terms? Need a refresher on how to do your stitches? In my ‘How to crochet: A handy reference guide’ EBook I help you with all of these terms and you can always have them to hand! You will also get exclusive access to free video instructions.

Using Yarn A (Make one flag in each colour yarn) x 6 in total

Begin with a ch 21

Row 1: 1dc in the 3rd ch from the hook *1ch, skip next st, 1dc in next st* Repeat from * to * until the end of the row.

Row 2: ch2, work your 1st dc in the first ch space from the previous row. *ch1, 1 dc in the next ch space from the previous row* Repeat from * to * until you reach the end of the row.   Your last dc should be worked between the ch 2 space and the last dc from the previous row.

Row 3-13: Repeat Row 2

You will now begin the decrease to shape your flag. You will only be working the decrease at the beginning of each row.

Row 14: ch2, sk the first chain space from the previous row and work your 1st dc in the 2nd ch space from the previous row.  *ch1, 1 dc in the next ch space from the previous row* Repeat from * to * until you reach the end of the row.

Row 15 – 23: Repeat Row 14 until your work reaches a point.

Tie off yarn and sew in ends.


Make 2 per flag, start with the matching yarn for each flag.

Using Yarn A – Ch 13, 1dc in 2nd ch from hook, 1dc in each of the next 10ch, 4dc in the last ch.  Turn your work to crochet along the base of the ch st.  1dc in each st across, ss to 1st st from this round.  (26sts).

Tie off yarn and fasten off.

Attach Yarn G to the 1st st, ch 3 (counts as 1tr), work 1tr in each st around (26sts)

Tie off yarn and fasten off.  Sew in your loose ends ready to attach your ears to your flags.

Position you ears with the curve at the front of your work and sew to your flag. Sew in any loose ends at the back of your work.


Using Yarn H measure the distance to sew two eyes on equally spaced apart.

Once you have sewn the eyes on create a diamond shape in the centre for the nose , then a line underneath the diamond shape.  

To finish off your bunting attach a small white pom pom to the base of the flag and thread a long piece of Yarn G through the top of each bunny ear to hang your bunting.

Your bunnytastic crochet bunting is now complete and ready to hang in time for Easter!
