Join me in Amigurumi Rainbow Bunny Crochet Challenge 2021 to create a unique collection of 12 colorful bunnies in the craziest combinations of the colors of the rainbow.

We will make one bunny each month. At the end of the year every one of us will have a unique collection of 12 self-made bunnies. You can collect them for yourself, give to friends or for the charity. But most of all – enjoy the colorful crochet journey!


  • Amigurumi Rainbow Bunny crochet challenge runs from January 5, 2021 until December 31, 2021.
  • The goal is to make one bunny each month, however, participation is not obligatory, so crochet as many bunnies as you can.
  • You don`t need to register to join. However, it would be great if you simply left a comment in this post, so I know how many of you there will be.
  • At the beginning of every month I will reveal the color of the current month in my blog. Let it inspire you!
  • There is no actual deadline to finish the bunny, let`s just try to complete them during the running month. So January bunny in January, February bunny in February, and so on.
  • It`s okay to join this challenge whenever during 2021.
  • We`ll share the photos on Instagram. Please tag @lilleliis_official, add #lilleliispattern , #sweetchildhoodbunny and #rainbowbunnychallenge, so I could see your photos too. I´ll share some of them in my story`s. If you`re not an Instagram user send photos to me on Facebook or via email:


  • You need to purchase “Sweet Childhood Bunny” pattern to participate in this crochet along. We will be using the same pattern throughout the year.
  • In my pattern I have used Drops Lima (DK / 8 ply weight wool). You are free to choose any yarn you want for making the bunnies. In addition, make sure to have a 2.5 (or 3) mm crochet hook, black 12 mm safety eyes with flat washers, enough polyester fiber fill stuffing, pieces of fabric with different prints, and some basic cotton yarn in variety of colors (Scheepjes has an awesome color pack of small balls available).
  • Check my blog for the color of the month at the beginning of every month.


Colors of the month will start appearing here too:

January, February, March, April, May, June, July, August, September, October, November, December

  2. Debra J Rodriguez says:

    I already made January’s Bunny.I am looking for the rest but my question for you is I also like your pattern for the Funny Bunny can we make that one for this challenge also?

      Hi! I´m glad you`ve joined. If you like to use Funny Bunny pattern instead of Sweet Childhood Bunny, then of course you may do so.

  3. Mags Rintoul says:

    I’m in. Got the pattern. Toy filling and eyes just been delivered, so nothing to stop me now

  4. Christine says:

    Hi, bought my pattern and excited to join the CAL to make lots of bunnies. I have used other patterns of yours, including bunnies and love the result.

  5. Nancy Lisak says:

    Oops. This just started and I’m all ready coloring outside the lines. I have a bunch of Premier everyday dk stripes I bought on the cheap last month and I’m starting with the peach melba. Just remember you said to make it my own.

  7. Kim says:

    My first ever time at doing something like this, so bought the pattern and am going to have a go, very exciting.

  8. Terézia says:

    Megvettem a mintát! Sajnos a nyelvi nehézségek miatt nem vettem észre a kuponkódot, de annyi baj legyen, ez nem veszi el a kedvemet! Kell még valamit tennem, hogy a kihívásban részt vehessek? Köszönöm!

    • Antal Regina says:

      Terézia, üdv itt.
      Semmi mást nem kell tenned csak elkészíteni havi 1 nyuszit és a képét feltölteni az Instagramon, vagy emailben/Facebookon elküldeni az alkotónak.
      Jó munkát

  9. Louisa Watts says:

    This sounds like fun, definitely going to join in and see if I can get one done a month.

  10. Patrizia says:

    Happy New Year everyone and… count me in…this is a wonderful challenge!! ❤️❤️❤️

  11. Vanessa Mason says:

    Wonderful can’t wait to start have purchased the pattern. What is our January colour!!

  12. TeresaLopez says:

    What an adorable pattern! I live in a rural town in Mexico where there is a toy drive every year. I usually am able to crochet around 10 to 12 toys to donate, so this is perfect! I will make a different one every month and at the end of the year I will have a beautiful bag to donate. Doesn´t really matter, but I couldn´t get the coupon code to work. I hope you will provide a page where everyone shows their bunnies so we can all get ideas on colors and things! Also, it would be really neat if there were some accessories for the bunny like a hat, a basket, etc, so we could make each one unique.

  13. Dawn Simpson says:
