Free Easter bunny crochet pattern

We're getting ready for Easter with a fun blog party this weekend, and we're starting today with a wonderful free crochet pattern from our friends at Coats Crafts!

We just love this adorable bunny napkin ring. It's easy to make, and you can have fun dressing up your finished bunny with a ribbon bow and tiny crocheted flower. The bunny is crocheted in Anchor Aida - it's available in a range of shades, so you can make bunnies in different colours if you like!
