A very simple, quick and easy crochet pattern for Easter! Crochet these peeps with worsted weight yarn or that super soft Bernat Blanket yarn!

You will need:

  • Crochet hook G/4.0mm & J/6.0mm
  • Yarn needle
  • Fiberfill stuffing
  • 6mm or 9mm safety eyes
  • An extra 6mm or 9mm eye to use for the nose
  • #4 medium worsted weight yarn or #6 super bulky yarn (see blog post for details)


  • Finished size: Peep with worsted weight yarn: 3.1” wide x 6.4” height; Peep with blanket yarn: 4.6” wide x 11.5” height
  • The ch 1 at the end of each row does not count as a stitch.
  • Use G hook & 6mm eyes/nose for worsted weight yarn peep.
  • Use J hook & 9mm eyes/nose for blanket yarn peep.
  • Each peep is worked flat, in two panels, then stuffed and joined together with single crochets all around.
  • Please embroider the eyes and nose if giving bunny to young children or pets, as safety eyes can pose as a choking hazard. You may also cut out small circles from felt and stick on bunny with hot glue.


  • This crochet pattern is in PDF format (4 pages) and includes clearly written instructions (easy for beginners to understand), progress photos and stitch count for every round.
  • Doriyumi patterns are always written using standard U.S. crochet terminology. An abbreviation chart in U.S. versus U.K./Canada terminology is included in the pattern for your reference.
