Bunny Baby Set: Free Preemie Bunny hat Pattern

Spread the love

Most times, I want to be a baby again (is this even possible)? I know it sounds hilarious but I love all the pretty baby clothing I come across in the store. Since I can’t be a baby, I decided to make some cute baby clothing and my first stop is the Bunny Baby Set.

I have decided to make the bunny hat pattern-free so you can all have a feel of how cute these patterns work up! Don’t you just love the cute bunny ears? As part of the 2021 preemie challenge, you also get this preemie bunny hat as a free PDF as a pledge to make some hats and donate to the nearest NICU. Seeing this post after the challenge? Don’t worry, the pattern is still free here on my blog, just scroll down for the free by=unny beanie pattern and make yourself some cute tiny hats.

Why Bunny Crochet Baby Set?

My 4 year old decided we go with a Bunny theme since I am expecting. I kind of love the idea too.

Currently, I have the following Bunny crochet pattern in the baby set:

  1. Bunny Sleeping bag
  2. Bunny Romper
  3. Bunny Shorts with suspenders
  4. Bunny Beanie
  5. and Bunny Applique.

For the next 48 hours, you can get the bundle of Bunny set patterns for just $6 on either Etsy or Ravelry. Use code – Bunnylove for a 50% discount.
