Cheryl the Dutch Rabbit
If you love the idea of owning a rabbit but worry about the price of carrots then this portly pet could be the answer! Chubby Cheryl, with her distinctive Dutch markings and pom-pom tail, measures 25cm/9⅞in from the tips of her ears to her dainty white toes and is made using just yarn, stuffing and a pair of buttons. Her head is knitted using the intarsia method but only for a few rows at a time, making this carrot-collecting critter the ideal project for more adventurous knitters!
If you’ve never tried intarsia before, there are lots of helpful videos and tutorials online. Alternatively, Cheryl would look just as cute knitted in a single colour or using a fuzzy yarn.
You’ll be pleased to know that this pattern has been reviewed by a professional technical editor to ensure that it’s super-easy to follow!
