Easter Bunny Mug Cozy

14.Mar.16 / Kirsten Ballering

The weather has been kind to us and the sun has been shining abundantly this past weekend. It does great things for my mood! That’s why I sat down and designed a new mug cozy. This one is seriously cute. The easter bunny mug cozy makes for a great last-minute gift!

Crochet pattern

Basic cozy

Row 1 with Colour A, ch45, turn.

Row 2 Starting in second ch from hook, 44hdc, join with ss to first hdc. [44 hdc]

Row 3 Ss in next stitch, 42hdc, ch1, turn. [42 hdc, 1 ss]

Rows 4-15 42hdc, leave other stitches unworked, ch1, turn. [42 hdc]

Row 16 ch11, 42hdc, fasten off. [42 hdc, 11 ch]

N.B. the 11 ch in Row 16 are depending on the size of the button. A large button requires more chains to fit.

Ears (make 2)

Row 1 with Colour C, ch11, turn.

Row 2 Starting in second ch from hook, 5ss, 4sc, (5hdc in 1 st), turn chain so you’re working on the other side of the chain, 4sc, 5ss, cut yarn.

Row 3 Join Colour B in the first ss of Row 2. 10hdc, 2hdc in 1 st, (hdc, picot, hdc in 1 st), 2hdc in 1st, 10hdc, cut yarn and fasten off all loose ends.


Following the instructions on your pompom maker, make a small pompom (approx. 3-4cm in diameter) for the butt.


To make the ears stand up straight, I used an ironing stiffening spray before assembly. Alternatively, you can follow the instructions in this pattern to make them even more stiff with wallpaper glue.

With Colour A, sew the button on the cozy. with Colour B, sew the pompom on the back of the cozy (the part where the button string is).

Next, loosely place your ears on the opposite side of the cozy. Make sure the ears are aligned left and right from the pompon and the lower part of the ears is approximately 3 rows from the top. If you’re happy with the alignment, sew them on tight with Colour B.

Hi Sharon,

Thanks for asking! In general I don't, but I hope you can find somebody local who'd be willing to make something for you? June 15, 2020 17:12 - Reply
