In about 1980, I spotted this bunny in a magazine and made it for my children. For over 30 years I've made this toy to accompany blankets I knitted for new babies, for Easter gifts, etc. This latest bunny is one of two that I made last year for my twin granddaughters. This is an EASY knit! The bunny is knitted flat with straight needles, then seamed together. I suggest you knit this with a washable acrylic yarn and use a good quality stuffing so that the bunny can be machine washed and dried. I know you will have a great time making this bunny and if its intended recipient is like my children and their children, it will be much loved. I did not design this bunny and made only minor changes to the original design. I no longer have the magazine and I'm sorry, but I do not recall the name and publishing date. I DO NOT TAKE CREDIT for the design and I'm sharing it free to all my friends at Craftsy. If you recognize this design and have information about its publisher, please let me know. I'd like to offer full credit to the originators of the design. Thank you! BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Cast on, knit, purl,, bind off GAUGE About 4 stitches = 1 inch. Gauge does not have to be exact.

Follow my blog at: I am certified as a Level 1 Master Hand Knitter by The Knitting Guild Association. My grandmother Lena taught me to knit when I was 4 years old and told me that a lifetime of knitting pleasure was her legacy to me. I love to design and knit and enter my work in competitions. I've won numerous awards and ribbons over the years and that's a lot of fun, but the greatest pleasure is the actual creative process. I specialize in Beginner and Intermediate level designs that teach new skills and promote excitement for the art that is Knitting. I think new knitters should have the opportunity to work with a well-written design that reinforces their current skills, teaches them new skills and gets a "WOW, you made that?!!?" response when showing off their completed project.
