Bunny gnome - free crochet gnome pattern

Bunny Gnome

I think I have bunnies on the brain. I’ve been designing my fluffy bunny cushion cover and pattern testing the love bunny from virkvinga. So it felt obvious that my next crochet cork gnome is a bunny gnome. Especially as Easter is just around the corner. I’ve used some textured yarn for the ears and tail cover to give the bunny some extra fluff.

Here is my free bunny gnome pattern:
