The smallest of all rabbit breeds, Netherland dwarf bunnies have baby-like features even as adults, like relatively large head and eyes and short ears. Holland lops are usually somewhat bigger but very similar in general proportions: they have compact bodies, short limbs and abundant coat, so in a sitting position their rear legs are almost invisible with only the tip of feet peeking out.

You could use any yarn weight for these bunnies as long as you choose a fitting hook, it will only influence the finished size. My example rabbits made with DK yarn and 3mm hook are about 5” long and a little over 4” tall (without the ears).

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:
start with magic ring, chain, slip stitch, single crochet, single crochet increase, invisible decrease

Only the simplest stitches are used in the pattern, but a short row technique makes this an advanced level amigurumi (it is quite simple actually, but might be fiddly so it’s better if you have a safe grip on basics).

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.
