When it's the first day of a month with the letter 'R' in it we've (my family) have always shouted 'RABBITS' - to this day I know not why and whether anyone else says it too? (Let me know friends!) But here's my cuddly homage to a family curiosity... and a jolly nudge to Spring I say!
My little bunny is knitted (almost) in one piece joining as you go - in fact the only part that's sewn separate to the main are the hind feet...
I've knitted him/ her ... not sure yet! - using fine Alpaca and Alpaca mix yarn from my fave - Drops yarn - and doubled up using two colours at once to create 'wild rabbit' subtle tones
You'll also need a pair of 16mm toy eyes and toy filling....
AND - there is also a YouTube video illustrating how to make up your rabbit and how to make it look as real as can be (given it's made from yarn and not fur!) - the link to that is given within the pattern
