The tapestry crochet Easter Bunny Potholder is the April potholder for my 2022 collection A Year of Potholders.
This fun, little rabbit is a super cute idea to crochet for your kitchen home decor for Easter and Spring!
Just like for the Farmhouse Collection, I used tapestry crochet to create a thick and solid hot pad that is safe to use and cute to look at!
A YEAR OF POTHOLDERS
This Easter Bunny Potholder is part of my tapestry crochet collection “A Year of Potholders”!
The idea is to share a new tapestry crochet potholder every month for the entire year, and every potholder has a different theme inspired by a different month.

Or watch the video tutorial on my YouTube channel HERE.
Just keep in mind that while in the video I do consider the initial ch-1 as my first st, for this pattern, the first chain does NOT count as a stitch!
6.2” (15.7 cm) by 6.3” (16 cm).
22.5 sc for 21 rows in 4” (10 cm) worked in tapestry crochet.
- The pattern is written in 2 sections. The Potholder is worked in rows, the Border in rounds.
- The potholder is worked entirely in sc.
- If the pattern says “(A) 5”, it means that you need to sc 1 in each of next 5 sts using color A.
- At the end of each row, ch 1 and turn.
- The initial ch 1 does NOT count as a st.
- All odd-numbered rows are crocheted on the right side. All even-numbered rows are crocheted on the wrong side.
- (…) – Repeat the instructions within brackets for the indicated number of times.
- With the exception of the border, the stitch count is always 34 sts.

I just tried to make this adorable potholder and the feet and body were on the wrong/opposite side of the head, what did I do wrong!! Everything else looks just fine except the heads turning the wrong way.
Hi, I’m not sure I’m following…
Would you mind sending me a picture of your potholder?
