Easily recognisable by their typical colour pattern, Dutch rabbits were once the most popular pet breed. This cute Dutch crochet rabbit by Kati Galusz is an advanced level pattern. Multiple colour changes are necessary to make the typical Dutch markings, which (coupled with realistic shaping).
You could use any yarn weight for these bunnies as long as you choose a fitting hook, it will only influence the finished size. The example rabbit pictured is made with DK yarn and 3mm hook, they are about 8” long and 6” tall to the tip of the ears. We thought this lovely design would make a wonderful Easter project and also a design to suit all year round.
