Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Knit
  • Cast on/off
  • Increase/descrease
  • Sewing up

Pattern Description:

Cuddly Bunny can be knitted using any yarn weight; this will affect his finished size of course. There are options included in the instructions to use contrasting muzzle, ear lining and paw pads. Your finished bunny will look lovely which ever choice you go with.

Cuddly Bunny is very cuddly, with floppy arms and legs. He has very large feet and over sized ears.

Just in time for Easter.

Bunny will need to be sewn up on completion of knitting' I have included detailed sewing up and construction instructions to guide you, with lots of tips along the way.

For increases I find it best to knit into the front and back of the same stitch; this forms a nice firm and tidy increase.

Notes to Knitter: I have used safety eyes, but if this bunny is for a young child you may wish to use felt or embroider the eyes in place.

If using ribbons and bows to adorn your bunny its a good idea to sew these in place.

Gauge isn't so important with knitted toys. Please note I advise smaller knitting needle sizes to advised on most ball bands. This is to creative a tight weave with your finished knitted fabric.
