Bunny Hat Knitting Pattern

We’re going to some fun, Easter themed activities this month so my little guy needed a bunny ear hat! This Bunny Hat Knitting Pattern features big ears with cotton lining. The ears are knit separately from the hat and then the cotton lining is sewn on by hand. It’s only takes a few minutes to sew and you can customize the hat any way you’d like!

  1. Adorable hat! I’d like one my size to wear during the holidays (and probably the rest of the winter) 🙂

    I’m putting together my yearly Easter arts and crafts compilation blog post and was wondering if I may share one of your pictures (with a link back to this post of course)? I actually found you last year when searching the web for Easter crafts and included your pink bunny hat with the knitted bow then. You’re apparently my first go-to-place for fun Easter projects and I’d love to share them with my little world, if I may (again)!

    Best of wishes,
