Who Might Love this C2C Crochet Bunny Rabbit Blanket?
When my mom and I started dreaming up this free corner to corner crochet bunny blanket pattern we definitely had an Easter crochet project in mind. But the more it started to take shape, the more it seemed like the perfect blanket for our new impending baby to snuggle. The crochet bunny silhouette is both modern and classic, making it feel not too Easter-y to use in a nursery or on a couch year round.

How to Customize This C2C Crochet Bunny Blanket Pattern
I’ve been in awe of the many ways you’ve found to customize the Be a Deer C2C afghan pattern to suit your own style. So for this corner to corner crochet bunny blanket, I wanted to make it as easy as possible for you to adjust the design and size depending on what you need.
In the ad-free, printable PDF, I’ve included several graphs with accompanying line-by-line C2C instructions so you can make the bunny rabbit blanket of your crochet dreams!
While the smaller size plaid bunny blanket graph (without line-by-line instructions) is included in the free pattern below, the printable PDF pattern includes C2C graphs and written line-by-line instructions for four different variations of this blanket pattern:
– Smaller size plaid blanket
– Larger size plaid bunny blanket
– Smaller size solid color bunny blanket
-Larger size solid color bunny blanket
You can purchase the PDF with the expanded pattern options for $3.99 here.
A Great Yarn for C2C Crochet Plaid Patterns
If you decide to substitute colors in your corner to corner crochet bunny blanket pattern, you’ll want to find a dark, medium and light shade of the same color in order to create the most effective plaid design.
One yarn I always turn to when I need a variety of shades in the same color is Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice. For this blanket pattern, I knew I wanted to find colors that were gender neutral in a yarn that is machine washable and easy to take care of. Vanna’s Choice fit the bill!
You can check out all the colors of Vanna’s Choice here. I think there are some really nice shades to combine to make a purple, green or yellow C2C bunny color scheme. I mocked up a couple of these graphs above we could envision how the design might look in different colors. (A lot of these colors are only available on LionBrand.com, so it’s definitely worth ordering online if you have your heart set on a certain color scheme.)
I’m also really excited to share that Lion Brand has turned our C2C Bunny Rabbit Blanket into a kit just in time for spring. I love kits for patterns that require a specific set of colors like this one because it takes all the hard work out of sourcing your yarn. You can order the kit with all the yarn you’ll need, plus a printed copy of the pattern here. (Available in four color schemes!)

OPTIONAL POM POM TAIL
• If making this blanket for a small baby or child under age 3, please do not add a pom pom tail as it could pose a choking hazard.
• To make pom poms without a pom pom maker, check out this tutorial on how to use a piece of cardboard instead.
To Add Pom Pom Tail:
With Color C yarn (or Color B for solid colored bunny option), make three 2.5” pom poms. Using a tapestry needle threaded with White yarn (or color to match blanket background), tie pom poms together by poking needle through center of each pom. Keep tapestry needle and yarn attached, sew pom pom cluster to blanket by tacking it down in a few different places. Weave in ends.
