Cuddle Bunny Ragdoll Lovey
The Cuddle Bunny is a ragdoll lovey that has a flat body, mimicking a security blanket for babies, toddlers, and young children. This almost no-sew project only requires sewing for the ears. It features a head, body, arms, and legs crocheted in one piece. Even the lacy details around the neck, long sleeves, and pajama pant legs are crocheted directly onto the doll. This clever rabbit design also features two-toned ears using simple color-changing techniques.
This design is easy and works up quickly with super bulky yarn and a large, 5mm hook. It looks great with blanket yarn, polyester, chenille, or velvet yarn, though you can use other types of fibers too! The sample was created with Hobbii Baby Snuggle, perfect for a soft and cuddly toy.
Customize this bunny lovey with different yarn colors. The design is unisex and gender neutral, and can be for both boys and girls. Kids will adore snuggling up to this sweet doll! It makes a great craft fair product, as well as a birthday gift, holiday gift, or baby shower gift!
