This sweet little bunny was first published in the spring of 2008. It’s a unique construction because the base of the little hopper is knit like a heel flap. The first time I made him, I used some vintage acrylic and the last few times I used leftover cotton. You can use just about any worsted weight yarn for this project. I’ve even seen people use faux fur with some pretty fun results.
2oz worsted weight yarn (I used some gifted red heart)
10-20 yrds of CC yarn
Size 4 dpn, set of fve
2 oz stufing, I used some polyfll.
5 sts per inch
k2tog: knit two together (decrease)
ssk: slip slip knit (decrease)
m1: make one
kfb: knit front back
Part of the bunny is worked like the heel of a sock with a heel flap, so sock knitting is a good thing to have figured out before trying this pattern.
There are a lot of parts of the pattern that refer to needles 1 – 4, it’s important to use a set of 5 double pointed needles.
