Chillin’ with the Peeps
~ free crochet pattern ~

A very simple, quick and easy crochet pattern for Easter! Crochet these peeps with worsted weight yarn or that super soft Bernat Blanket yarn! The purple, pink and green peeps are done using worsted weight; the blue peep is done in the Bernat Blanket yarn, which is a super bulky #6 weight yarn. You will notice I used Caron One Pound for both the purple and green peeps, but used Vanna’s for the pink — that is because I ran out of the Caron One Pound in Soft Pink! I actually did go to JoAnn’s to see if I can grab another skein of soft pink, but they didn’t have it in stock. I do recommend to use the same yarn weight & brand if you are making a few peeps so the sizes stay consistent. My pink bunny turned out a little smaller than the others.

 NOTES

  • Please read through the entire pattern before you start.
  • Finished size:
    • Peep with worsted weight yarn: 3.1” wide x 6.4” height
    • Peep with blanket yarn: 4.6″ wide x 11.5″ height
  • The ch 1 at the end of each row does not count as a stitch.
  • Use G hook & 6mm eyes/nose for worsted weight yarn peep.
  • Use J hook & 9mm eyes/nose for blanket yarn peep.
  • Each peep is worked flat, in two panels, then stuffed and joined together with single crochets all around.
  • Please embroider the eyes and nose if giving bunny to young children or pets, as safety eyes can pose as a choking hazard. You may also cut out small circles from felt and stick on bunny with hot glue.
