Thanks to their small size, cute droopy ears, and playful temperament, the Mini Lop is one of the most popular pet rabbit breeds. Follow the pattern exactly for a mostly white bunny with small, slightly asymmetrical patches, or make up your own color markings – your amigurumi will look adorable either way!

The pattern was designed with DK yarn and 3mm hook, to make a bunny about 20cm/8” long. But you can use any yarn thickness: as long as you choose the hook and eye size accordingly, your rabbit will turn out just as fine, only smaller or bigger than my samples.
If using DK yarn, you will need about 45g of white and 12g of the patch color.

The pattern is 9 pages long with many photographs illustrating the process. It is written in English with US crochet terms. Stitches and techniques used:
starting with magic ring, slip stitch, single crochet, single crochet increase, invisible decrease, working in front loop only, changing colors

Realistic shaping and multiple color changes make this an intermediate-advanced level amigurumi.

Finished items made from this pattern are yours to keep or gift away or sell, I only ask you to give me credit as designer in case you decide to sell them.
