Bunny Blanket Crochet Pattern Inspiration
Around Christmastime I made Santa’s Blanket, and it was such a hit that I decided the Easter Bunny probably needs a blanket, too! I wanted to stick with a cute yet simplistic style - and this easy white blanket with pink fur accents totally fits the bill.
Use Bulky Yarn to Make a Bunny Blanket
I used a “new to me” yarn for this blanket - Mighty Stitch Bulky from KnitPicks/WeCrochet - and I LOVE it. It’s a super soft acrylic/superwash wool blend that I will definitely be using again. I used double strands of Mighty Stitch Bulky yarn to make this blanket, however you could also give Mighty Stitch Super Bulky a try, too. Either way, this will be a relatively quick Easter project for you to finish in the coming weeks.
Make this Bunny Blanket in any Color
Not into pastels? Want to use this blanket as a baby blanket? You can feel free to mix and match other colors. Mighty Stitch Bulky and Fable Fur yarn come in an awesome variety of colors! I think a silver gray blanket with a light blue fur border, or a cream blanket with light brown fur border would be two fabulous options.
