These little cute little bunnies have been a "Knitting Needle" favorite for many years. Inspired by the love that my brother has for his rabbits, my mom, lovingly knit "Bunster" in memory of my brothers first fuzzy friend. Needless to say rabbits it only made sense that "Bunster" should have a family, Bunnie & Ebunny. These bunnies are quick to knit, the pattern is a dream to read and to work from, and who doesn't love bunnies..... Happy Knitting Jan Designed by Mary Martin - The Knitting Needle BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY For these fuzzy little creatures, yoy will need to know how to knit & purl, work in the round on double pointed needles, increase & decrease.

My Pattern Store on Craftsy is all about my mom. She had a passion for knitting that spanned decades. Her designing was born of necessity, as she was widowed at 30 with two small boys and a newborn (me) to raise. It just seemed natural for her to take her passion and turn it into a career. She established her business "The Knitting Needle" in the early 70's and continued to design until she was 85. It was her dream that I assume her role as owner, and designer, of the business that she had such a passion for. Most of the patterns that you will find in my store are my moms designs. Patterns designed by me will also be inspired in her memory. Thank you, mom. Happy Knitting, Jan
