Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knit and purl
  • knit in the round with at most two colors

Pattern Description:

Had this idea in my head for quite some time since I have seen an Easter table runner in stitching of a similar style in a shop window while passing it on the bus (last year).

As I need some distraction from the surgeries yet to come (no 1 is over and everything went well) but the second big one will be next Friday)
It would be great if you would give me your fav as a sign for your support and sympathy!

These are hard times for Sandra :)
It will make it a bit more bearable.

Thanks for all your good wishes up to now. I got so many! I feel blessed and overwhelmed! If you all keep your fingers crossed nothing can go wrong. :)
I(tm)ll hug you all back!!!

The beanie is knit with 4-ply sock yarn, has a three color ribbing but at most two colors in one row.
There are three different bands of bunnies around, one standing, one sitting, one running.
It has a tiny daisy like border pattern and a daisy or a sunny side up egg (which will fit the Easter egg idea nicely and a bit cute) at the top :)

Enjoy and happy knitting!
