I show you how to crochet a Cukado “Bunny” beanie for your Cukado Amigurumis. The crocheted beanie “Bunny” consists of a simple beanie with funny rabbit ears and fits all Cukado dolls.
For the Cukado Beanie to fit all Cukado dolls you should crochet it with a comparable yarn size and needle size as the Cukado Amigurumi.
If you are no longer a beginner, you can also adjust the size of each part. This is especially necessary if you use thicker or thinner yarn or your Cukado doll has extra thick or no hair.
For the Cukado Bunny Beanie we first crochet a simple beanie and a few ears. Finally, the ears are still sewn to the beanie and then your bunny beanie is already finished.
We crochet the beanie for the Cukado doll in circle rounds with half treble crochet stitches (UK!). You simply use the universal pattern for the beanie with half treble crochet stitches (UK!). This way you can freely adjust the size of the beanie, if you use thicker yarn for the beanie or the hair of the doll.
You start with white and 8 half treble crochet stitches (UK!), so 9 stitches in the 1. round. Then crochet 7 rounds with increases to get at 63 stitches so the beanie will fit over your hair as well. This is followed by 7 more rounds without increases and the final round with double crochet stitches (UK!).
Next we want to crochet the ears for the bunny hat. We are crocheting in rows of different stitches. Each ear consists of an inner and an outer part.
It’s best to first crochet the two inner parts in pink and then the two outer parts in white. Once the outer part is finished it is crocheted together directly with the inner part.
Now we can crochet the ears together by putting the inner and the outer part of the ear together so that the nice sides are facing outwards. Then you always stitch into both loops of both parts to crochet them together.
Now crochet along the open edge to close the ear completely. Here you also always stab into two parts in order to crochet together.
Finally, you only have to sew the ears to the hat. To do this fold the ears halfway at the bottom edge and use the thread ends of the ears. The ears sit vertically around a stitch of the 9th round with a spacing of 8 stitches.
