|Here are some details about my project:|
What materials did you use? 100 % Acrylic yarns -- I just used stuff I have lying around in my all-too-large stash. I used size US 4 for the project since I was on vacation and that's the size needle I happened to have with me. Now that I have a "Baby Bunny" (thanks to my small needles), I figure I can make a Mama Bunny to go with it. I also used plastic bear nose and some plastic eyes I had lying around the house
What are you most proud of? I love that I walked away from this project with a new skill -- that of performing a Turkish cast-on. Some things sound scary at first, but once you do it a few times, you begin to realize that the new skill is handy and now it is yours to keep for all time. Yay! (of course, if you don't want to do this cast-on, it would be easy enuf to make the whole bunny in stockinette and then sew it all together at the end. I kind of hate putting things together at the end of my knitting tho, so I it's Turkish cast-on from now on for me ;)
What advice would you give someone starting this project? If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact the author of the pattern. She is a very nice lady and will gladly help you along the way, Also, don't be scared if you've never done a Turkish cast-on or stranded color knitting before. Repeat after me: "YOUTUBE.com is my friend". [There's only one technique I have NOT been able to observe on YOUTUBE.com and that is the technique known as PULT found in "Knit Your Own Dog". If anyone can send me a video of that one, I'll be your friend forever. ] And, if you don't want to learn either of the above techniques, then just switch back and forth from knit to purl on alternating rows and sew it up at the end. (I hope I'm not over-simplifying that too much!)
