Knit Bunny Hat Pattern

Knit bunny hat 6

With spring and Easter within sight, I wanted to make my daughter a bunny hat. I hoped for something vintage yet modern, sweet and boutique-like, all at the same time.  The ears had to stand up, and this was a bit of a challenge. With some trial and error, they stand up and flop around just how I wanted. Once I completed it, my girl happily put it on and bounced around the kitchen. Success!

This is super easy because it is knit flat and seamed (you could certainly do it in the round as well).  All you need to know for this hat is how to knit,  purl and decrease (there is very little decreasing, so fear not).  This hat will fit 2T to 3T (small 4T) (add some stitches or take some away to adjust fit for a larger or smaller child!).  You could also make it without the eyes and nose. I really liked the look of it before I added the features too. This probably shouldn’t be your first project, but if you’ve had some practice with other easy projects, you are good to go!

Knit Bunny Hat 2

You will need:

One skein Lion Brand Yarn Wool Ease Thick & Quick – Color Fisherman


Tapestry Needle

Size 8 Knitting needles (for the ears)

Size 13 Knitting needles (for the hat)

Crochet Hook (optional – this was used to embroider eyes and nose)

Black worsted weight yarn, grey worsted weight yarn (optional – this is for the eyes and nose, if you want them)

Knit Bunny Ears 6

*Gauge is approximately stitches and 3 rows per inch

Hat Portion (Hat is knit flat)

With your size 13 Knitting Needles

Knit Cast on 40

You will now work in a 1X1 rib. So you knit one, purl one.  Do this rib pattern for three rows.

Row 4 *Knit Across row (you are now beginning to knit in stockinette stitch)

Row 5 Purl Across row*

Repeat from * to *, continuing the stockinette stitch for inches, or approximately 16 rows

Decrease Row:

On your next knit row (after you’ve completed your inches of stockinette) : *Knit 2 together, Knit one, Knit 2 together, Knit one* Repeat * to * across row.

Next Row: Purl Across Row

Next Row: Knit Across Row

Next Row: Purl 2 together across row (Decrease across this row)

Cut a long tail, pull through the loops, and tighten to make the top of your hat.  Tie off. Your hat now has a top.  You will now seam the hat, using a mattress stitch (There are tons of tutorials on youtube if you’ve never done the mattress stitch. This stitch makes the seam invisible)

Ears: (you will knit four flat pieces, two for each ear)

Using Size 8 Knitting Needles

Cast on 6 stitches

Work in Stockinette (Knit one row, Purl the next row, Knit one row, Purl the next row) for inches

*On your next knit row, decrease

Decrease Row – Knit 2 together, Knit, Knit, Knit 2 together

Next Row – *Purl Across row

Next Row-Knit Across row*

Continue * to * (stockinette) for a total of one inch

Cast off, weave in ends

**You will make four of these “ears”.  Once you have four, see assembly below.

Whip stitching two together to make an ear.
One side of an ear as it&#;s knit. It looks curled, but won&#;t be when you stitch two together.

Assembling the bunny ears:

With two of your knit “ears”, uncurl, place wrong sides together. You will whip stitch around entire ear, leaving the bottom open. DO NOT CLOSE THE BOTTOM OF THE EAR.

Repeat this so you have two bunny ears!

Attaching the ears to the hat:

With the ear open (the ears are like a tube and you want the bottom to be open when attaching it to the hat) Place the small open end on the hat and whip stitch around entire ear once.  Check if there are areas that need more support, and go around a second time. Add an extra stitch to parts that may need more support to hold the ear in place.

Attaching ears


Face Embroidery (Optional – It’s cute without a face too!):

For the eyes, I used a crochet hook to slip stitch the shape of the eye. Again, there are a lot of tutorials on youtube on how to do this slip stitch embroidery. Below, I have pictures of how I did it. You can move your cursor over the picture for a short explanation.  There are many ways to embroider your eyes, and you can customize as you would like.    Lay your hat flat with it facing you. One third of the way down, and about five stitches in, you can start the upper outside portion of your eye. Slip stitch three stitches down, three over, and three up, tie off.

For the eyelashes I used a tapestry needle with my yarn to simply stitch some straight lines.  The nose was also done with a tapestry needle and grey yarn. I weaved an X shape three times for the nose.

Pull yarn up through hat
Slip stitch
Soon you&#;ll have eyes!


Use tapestry needle for eyelashes
Stitch an X for the nose

Finally, make sure all of your ends are tied off, and weave them all in! As always, let me know if you have any questions, or if there is anything I can do to improve my instructions!

Bunny Hat

I do get requests for occasional projects. And not too long ago a knitter asked me to make a bunny hat for a 5/6-year-old. Since I have a big stash of yarn, I found a white yarn (no label but I think it is Lion Brand's Pound of Love, since it looks the same as my blue colored yarn that is Pound of Love that has a label). Then I needed a pink yarn for the inner part of the rabbit's ear. I had a leftover from Mandala Cake (also Lion Brand). However, that yarn was a little thinner which was perfect for my purpose. The hat was knitted from just one strand. When I was working on the ears' white part I used 2 strands, but for the pink part, I used one strand only.
Now if you would like to make the hat smaller you could (cast on 80 sts to make it 16" in diameter) and of course, knit a lower number of rows to make the hat shorter.
Add eyes, a nose, and whiskers if you wish.

Of course, for people that do better knitting along with the videos, I recorded my knitting. If you like to read patterns for the hat and for the ears - scroll down.



Yarn #1 - Lion Brand Yarns; Pound of Love; Color White; Medium (4); % acrylic; Skein Weight: 16 oz/ g; yd/ m; I used about 50 g (~ yards)
Yarn #2 - Lion Brand Yarns, Mandala Cake; Color: Unicorn; Light (3); % acrylic; oz/g; yd/ m; I used few yards of the pink part
Knitting Needles: mm (for a hat and pink ears) & 6 mm (for white ears)
Hook (for closing the top of the hat - see the video)
Yarn Needle (for sewing ears onto the hat)

CO - cast on
K - knit

Row 43                *[SSK, K8]* - 9x

Row 52                K45
Row 53                *[SSK, K3]* - 9x
Row 54                K36

Make 4 - make 2 with a double strand of white yarn, and make 2 with a single strand of pink yarn.

CO 12 sts, for white yarn use 6 mm knitting needles, for pink yarn use mm knitting needles. Leave long tails for sewing.

Row              K12
Row 25                K1, k2tog, K6, SSK, K1
Row            K10
Row 29                 K1, k2tog, K4, SSK, K1
Row 30                 K10
Row 31                 K1, k2tog, K2, SSK, K1
Row 32                 K1, k2tog, SSK, K1
Row 33                 BO


Sew the pink part of the ear on the top of the white ear, then sew the white ear onto the hat. Use your judgment on how you would like to have them placed on the top of the hat. When finished, weave in all the tails.

Note: Most of the time I work as fast as I can to keep up with knitting and crocheting requests. I have to videotape, edit videos, then convert them & upload them to my channel. After that often I post on my blog patterns. I answer many questions, which means that often I work up to 16 hours a day. I would tremendously appreciate IF anyone of you finds an error in the written pattern, so please, let me know - where (what rows) and what may be the problem. Many future knitters & crocheters from our artsy and crafty virtual world will thank you for your good deed, including myself.

He said something, she smiled, answered something. The dance ended, they went together to the bench and sat down. She crossed her legs, the sundress flung open, almost completely revealing her smooth thighs.

He saw that the girl was unsettled, and was going to scare her a little more in order to take advantage. Of her helplessness. - Why would I do this. - Help me please. I will learn everything.

She turned on the recording. At first nothing happened, then she saw herself drunk on the wood, staggered, undressed for some reason and collapsed on the bed without feeling. Half an hour later, a man entered the room, in the light of the street lighting she quickly recognized him. it was her father.
