Enjoy!  It's my belated Easter gift from me to you.   Grin





Knitted Chocolate Bunny

I knitted this hand-sized bunny with DK yarn on 3mm needles, but that was only because I didn't have any worsted weight in brown. For a bigger bunny, use worsted weight yarn with 4mm needles, or - my favourite - chunky weight (or 2 strands of worsted held together) with 6mm needles. As long as your needle size is slightly smaller than the recommended needle size for the yarn weight, the stuffing won't show through and the tension will stay tight.

The base of bunny is knitted back and forth in garter stitch, then stitches are picked up and bunny is worked in the round. The tip of the ears is grafted at the end. Yes, it's seamless - no sewing up!

ETA, April 26, 2008: I've moved the pattern to my blog, here.  I did this because I had to fix an error that someone kindly pointed out, and prefer to do edits in one place only.

This is adorable! Thanks so much for sharing. Please let us know what size needles you used.

I am envisioning making it into a change purse: add a zipper in the bunny's back and a lining. I think my daughter and neices would love that- and I have a whole year to do that  Smiley

If all our life is but a dream, fantastic posing greed
Then we should feed our jewelry to the sea
For diamonds do appear to be
Just like broken glass to me.

This is the pattern knitted up with 5.0 mm needles and two strands of DK held together.  It took slightly less than one 50g skein of DK yarn (separated into two balls).
