Pattern Description:

While I have some designs for bunnies already, I received a request to design a bunny "family". I had so much fun as I went along, I decided to create THREE sizes of bunnies. And then I couldn't stop, so I decided to design stitched-on clothes for them, too! So there are actually SIX patterns included in this pattern: three sizes undressed (PLAIN) and three sizes dressed (FANCY)! (Clothes are not removable.) Bunnies are 12", 10", & 9" sitting, and 17", 15", & 13" standing. They're knit with worsted weight yarn and are simply jointed, so their arms and legs are moveable, if you choose to joint them. More fun to play with, right? There is a LOT in this pattern! So take your pick of sizes or make a whole family of bunnies!


Not critical for this project. Work tightly enough to ensure that the stuffing will not show through the stitches.
