Billy is a sleepy bunny rabbit who measures approximately 12 inches long when lying. He is sure to bring a smile to whoever sees him. He is a wonderful cuddly size and will make a perfect gift for any child or grown up "kid at heart." He is knit in the round and completely seamless. If you aren't crazy about seaming and have wanted to try a seamless pattern this is a great beginner project. Knitting in the round is really quite easy and much faster than flat knitting. My patterns are written so that they are easy to follow, and include photos and instructions to help you. And if you have a problem or a question, do not hesitate to contact me, I am only an e-mail away. If you haven't tried making a toy or using the knitting in the round method, give it a try, your in for a very pleasant surprise! *P.S. I have an info, link, and tutorial page on my blog, please feel free to browse, and if you have anything you think I should add please contact me.I have made and posted the link for a couple of videos to show how to pick up stitches, so if you have any other questions or ideas, or contributions, just let me know. bj I want you to enjoy your hobby as much as I do!! :) Copyright (c) 2010 bjfromnv all rights reserved BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY knitting in the round with dp needles. GAUGE : For this project gauge is not crucial, although it is important to create a very firm fabric so that your stuffing will not show through. If your stuffing is showing through, you need to change to a smaller needle. SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Billy is a sleepy bunny rabbit who measures approximately 12 inches long when lying.
