Raving Rabbid Crochet Pattern (Amigurumi)

Here it is!!! My Raving Rabbid crochet pattern for all of you, and it’s free!


I hope you all can understand my instructions, but if you have any problems, please feel free to ask me. Sorry if he looks a little rough around the edges, my son just loves it and takes it everywhere.




Now I just used old yarn I had so I hope the pieces fit together okay. I used worsted weight yarn for the white, red/blue, dark red and black. But I used baby sport yarn for the pink. I can’t tell you if using worsted weight yarn for pink will cause the pattern to not fit properly. Please keep this in mind.



I recommend making ALL the pieces first then assembling according to instructions at the end. As for the rounds, in this doll I connected each one, but I see no problem with working in continuous rounds. If anyone makes this in continuous rounds please let me know how it turns out.



I used an H8/5.00mm hook for all pieces.

  3. I made my God daughter a Rayman for Christmas and after staring at him in amazement for a good few minutes her response was, can you make glowbox. Well I can't find a pattern for him but this is just going to be perfect for her birthday, do you know roughly how much white yarn you used?

  6. This is one of my favorite little guys and i was sooo excited to find a pattern for him, especially a free one. This is one of the best patterns i have found. Very easy to follow. A little pain staking, but when you're done it's soooo worth it. Thank you so much for offering this pattern for us.
