Free Easter amigurumi pattern: Haru-chan and baby Chioux

It’s been a year since we shared our first pattern, Sayo & Nara-chan.

Easter is almost here again and this time, we have Haru-chan and her pet chick, Chioux, to join us for the celebration.

Spring is Haru-chan’s favourite season of the year. She is a big fan of jelly-filled chocolate and cute little animals. Her free time is spent rescuing stray animals – lil’ Chioux being one of them. That happened a long time ago, one cold, rainy day.

Now the two are the best of friends and all ready for some Easter fun!

  • With your dark brown sewing thread, sew a small diagonal stitch from the side-centre to the top-centre of each eye.
  • Knot the ends off at the bottom of the head, which will be hidden later on when you place the head in the hood.

 

Nose & mouth:

With dark brown sewing thread:

  • Thread your needle through from the bottom of the head to the centre between the eyes on Round 10.
  • Sew a vertical line to the bottom of Round 11.
  • Make small backstitches to the left and right of this line to form curves for the mouth.
  • Knot the ends off at the bottom of the head.

Assembly

  • Sew the body onto the hood (that should now contain the head).
  • Sew the arms onto the front of the body, right below the hood.
  • Sew on the legs.
  • Sew on the tail.
  • Sew on the ears – give the pieces a slight pinch to mould them into shape.
  • Give the pet chick a pair of eyes – use the dark brown sewing thread to make a small horizontal line, one stitch away, to the left and right of the beak.
  • Sew the pet chick onto Haru-chan’s hood. Let it peek out from between her ears.
  • Cut two small round pieces of pink felt and glue them onto the cheeks.

  1. Somehow my head got more hexagonal than round ^^ but with the hoodie it looks quite round (or more like an oval – but I love it 🙂 ) can’t wait to make the rest of the body

    Thank you for this adorable pattern!!!

  2. Hello! I really really want to make this exactly like it is in the picture and I don’t have the perfect cyan color, but one close enough. However, the website I found it on has many different types of yarn. I was wondering which type of yarn you used?

    1. Hi Rika,

      We used acrylic yarn. The thickness is about the size of a 2mm crochet hook. Do share your finished Haru-chan with us! 🙂

  3. Hi… You should really sell these! Like, each one can be different and have different accessories (bow, ribbon, bell, etc.) I tried making it but my head is way too big for the body and I put the ears wrong…. ;(

  4. This is the cutest Ami bunny I have seen yet. Thank you for posting the pattern for us. I will definitely put a link to this page so others can see your awesome work.

  5. I really liked it and I’ve just finnished mines 🙂 but sadly it is not as cute as your own 😦 but still I am happy beacause it came out kind of cute for my first amigurumi ! 🙂 Thanks for the pattern 🙂

  6. I really want to make it! But, I can’t find that blue brads. Where do you get that kind of brads? Do you buy it online? Thank you !

  7. Hello, I’m really want to make this bunny for my friend’s daughter as her 1st birthday gift. Can you tell me its size please? ^^

    1. Hey there! It really depends on the yarn thickness that you’re using. If both the head and hood yarn are of the same size – don’t worry, when you decrease it should fit well. If you’re using two different yarn sizes, then increase only until the width of the head 🙂 hope that helps!
