FO Report -- Knitted Easter Bunny


Beginning knitters take note -- this little bunny is quick and easy to make.

I whipped it up in about 2 hours while I was teaching a friend how to knit. All I had to do was knit a little square, sew it into the bunny shape, add the stuffing, and then knit and attach the ears and pom pom tail.

Materials: a leftover fistful of Lamb's Pride Worsted, 5mm/US#8 needles, a Chibi tapestry needle to sew the square into a bunny shape, a fistful of toy stuffing. I pinched together the small snips of yarn that were left from stitching up the bunny legs and tummy, added a few more bits, and had the tiny pom pom tail.

If you used smaller yarn and needles to make your square, you could get by with even less yardage. Also, this little bunny requires just the smallest bit of toy stuffing, and if you didn't want to search out a whole bag of it, you could probably just fluff up some of those fake cotton balls.

The little bunny lived with me for a couple of weeks, but on Easter I gave it to the friend I was teaching to knit.

Adorable! Trope gave us a similar lil' fella shortly before Ellie was born -- they're so cuddly and sweet. I loved the egg photo and am eager to catch up soon and hear about all the Asian wisdom you've been tapping into. It sounds wonderful...just right for emerging from swamps!
