Fluffy Bunny Pillow Cover by Briana K Designs Free Knit Pattern

Who is excited about spring to come? Can you tell I am with the Fluffy Bunny Knit Pillow Cover? Even living in Florida I cannot get enough spring-like days. I love watching the new flowers bloom and plot the many herbs I will plant…and likely kill lol. So a green thumb does not describe me, yet. I hope to one day really hone in my gardening skills and be able to produce fresh vegetables and herbs.

The Fluffy Bunny Pillow Cover is a great home decor addition for spring, but really could be used all year round. I think it would be really cute in a baby nursery or kid bedroom too. 

I hope you really enjoy not only working up this pattern but adding beautiful hand made decor to your home. I love being able to bring you awesome crochet content, will you please help keep this possible? Pinning this post, sharing with friends, and favoriting on Ravelry is a great way to say thanks.

Fluffy Bunny Knit Pillow Cover Notes:

*Please note, matching gauge both horizontal and vertical can be difficult. Extra rows can be added at the top if needed so it is more important to match the stitch gauge versus the row gauge. This pattern also has some ease to fit over a pillow.*

This pattern is worked in rows and in two pieces. The front panel will also work a button hole flap to secure the top of the crochet pillow. The front and the back panels will be slip stitched together once completed. 

Since there is a wrong side and a right side to the pillow panels, I used a combination of intarsia and carrying yarn across the back for the color work. Experiment and see what works best for you.

There is a free tutorial on how to make the Faux Fur Pompom that can be found HERE.
