Pattern Description:

The pattern gives instructions for a rabbit with floppy or upright ears and shows you how to attach the limbs with thread joints so that they will move, but you can choose to sew them in a set position if you prefer.
Instructions for the following accessories are also included:- sweater, shorts, dress. shoes and satchel
The satchel fastens with one button and can be used to put candy or found treasures in!

Both Robert and Rosie are approximately 10"(25cms) tall, excluding their ears, if knitted in light worsted weight/DK yarn, but you can use any type of yarn to make them. They are knit flat on two needles.
This is an 11 page PDF document. All rows are numbered to help you keep your place and there are detailed stage by stage photos of the making up process, including the facial features

You can knit the rabbit without clothes or just a simple sweater or dress for a new baby or knit a full set of clothes and bag to give hours of imaginative play to an older child..

There is also a FREE pattern for additional clothing for the rabbits in my store

My patterns are written in standard US/UK terms with clear instructions and plenty of pictures to guide you.
I have worked for several years writing project instructions for UK craft magazines, including knitting patterns.
You may make toys to sell using the pattern, but you cannot sell the pattern itself.
