Violetta the Cat and Lille the Bunny

(Free Amigurumi pattern)

You may remember the Ballerina Cats I made for my Etsy shop some months ago. Since they’ve all been adopted, I decided to add a little Easter variation to it, and to share with you the pattern I wrote!

Holidays are coming soon, but you’re still in time to make a lot of colorful bunnies for you and your friends. It isn’t a long project, and it is very simple, so I recommend trying whatever your crocheting level is.

Plus, making mini-skirts for Lille and Violet is a lovely way of using up all these fabric scraps that you love and have aside since a while. My little girl loves to change their outfit from ‘spring’ to ‘ballerina’, and I am sure I will have to make some more clothes in the weeks to come!

This pattern is for free, and cannot be used to create dolls to sell. If you cannot crochet and would like a cat or a bunny you can always contact me directly – same for any sort of questions (or compliment!).

VIOLET & LILLE

Violet and Lille are 23-24 cm long. To make them, you will need one color of yarn for the body, one color for the shoes, plus some black thinner yarn for the eyes and nose.

I used a size 2 hook (European size). You will need also cotton stuffing, and a yarn needle.
