To try and hurry on Spring I decided this week to start on a few little rabbits. I’m booked into a couple of Craft Fairs in April, just in time for Easter so hoping these will go down well.
The last rabbits I made were the Bridal Bunnies back in September. This is the new Mrs Bunny with her basket, out shopping apparently for yarn. Mmmm rumour has it she is expecting!
For this rabbit I used the Debi Birken ‘Bunty Bunny’ pattern for the basic rabbit, it’s an easy pattern to knit and construct. The shoes, legs and body are knitted in one piece with the head and arms knitted seperately and attched. She is 9 inches high from shoes to the tips of her ears and knitted in a light fawn colour,
With just small amounts of DK in pinks ,white lilac and grey I knitted: The Dress
Then the coat which has a rib effect pattern with collar and edgings in pink.
The little basket was knitted in moss stitch, just the right size for her to hold and small amounts of yarn were rolled up into small balls. Thought for the Craft Fair I could put small easter eggs in the basket.
Looks like our little bunny is going to be busy knitting away for her little one, which could be a clue to my next project!
