Evil Bunny Beanie Hat Crochet Pattern (13)

This crochet pattern was a special design at the request of one of our guy friends. An evil bunny? in his favorite colors black and red? Why not? So I made up this hat just for him but had to keep the pattern to share with everyone of course. :) This is an advanced beginner crochet project with very few pieces for a character or animal hat so it’s not that hard to do in one sitting even. It makes a perfect fun gift for those that are a little into the darker sides of things, males and even Halloween costumes. This little guy kind of grew on me while I was making him up. I think he may be leaning more to cute than evil though. Oops.

Evil Bunny Beanie Hat Crochet Pattern (15)

Finishing off:
Starting with your eyes, we are going to assemble the eye pupils and eye colors together into completed eyes before attaching them to the evil bunny hat. Take the leftover black (main color) yarn tail from one eye pupil and your Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle to sew your pupil in place in the center of one red (contrast color) eye color piece. You want to place it so that it is long wise, up and down, vertical. Once it is securely in place, pull your yarn to the back of the assembled eye before fastening off. Repeat this process for your second eye.
Next take the leftover red (contrast color) yarn tail from your assembled eye and using your Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle sew the bunny’s eye directly on to the beanie. Since these are the only beanie feature, feel free to play around with the placement. You may like it more down low on the hat, in the middle or even up high. You can reference my pictures on where I placed the eyes on my evil bunny hat. Once you have sewn it in place, pull yarn to inside of beanie hat and fasten off. Repeat this process for your second eye.
Now take the leftover black (main color) yarn tail from one assembled ear and sew it on to the desired location with the  Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle on your evil bunny hat. If you want longer hanging ears, place lower on the hat. If you want shorter hanger ears, place higher on hat. For head top floppy ears, place on top of hat with contrast color piece facing forward. You can also place the ears on the side of the head with the red facing forward more towards the top so that they will flop forward with peeks at the red also. You can see how I placed the ears on this evil bunny hat as requested by our male friend in my pictures. Once you have secured the ear fully in place, pull the leftover yarn tail to the inside of the hat before fastening off. Repeat for second ear.
*Tip from cRAfterChick: I normally mark the start and finish of my second ear with safety pins so that I get the ears perfectly symmetrically placed but I’m a bit OCD about them being even. It will drive me crazy if they are slightly off but it by no means is a necessary step. *
Take the time now to look over your assembled hat to check for any loose ends or tails you might of missed during assembly process. Take the time now to sew them in and fasten off.
All done! One super evil looking bunny hat ready to wear. I told you it wasn’t too complicated. :) Happy crafting!
