I made this bunny from the free pattern available at the Heartstrings Fiber Arts site:
http://www.heartstringsfiberarts.com/bunny.shtm

My bunny isn't as photogenic as the one on the website.  And its ears are kind of ridiculously long (I did them in stocking stitch because I wanted them to curl in one direction).  I haven't added a tail. Can't decide whether it needs one.  The pattern suggests pulling out a tuft of stuffing, but I'm not sure about that.  What do you think?

It's a really simple pattern, suitable for a beginner.  The rabbit is made from a square (good use of a gauge swatch!), and the ears are knitted separately, then sewn on.

cute, cute, CUTE!!  I'm going to make one tonight for my niece, who I call my "bunny girl"!  Hmmm, maybe in girly-girl pink?

so super cute! i bet it's all nice and cuddly!  would it be lame to make one for myself as an adult?

i think it's cute the way it is, but if you wanted a tail you could always make a pompom with the mohair yarn...i think that might be softer than a wad of stuffing.

of course not!  adults need soft squishy loving too!

hmmm...  after I figure out those directions to sew it up, I'll have to make one!  but I think mine will be out of polar spun, since I have it.  think it would work?

I'm with kategirl - you never lose the need for cute softness.  To tell you the truth, I'm having trouble keeping my hands off this thing.

Io, I know, angora would have been perfect.  I didn't have any on hand, but I've GOT to make one with it one day.  Oh well, I guess it means another trip to the LYS... Wink

delierious d, I think  polarspun would be fun.  It would make kind of a ragged bunny. Make sure you post it!

I have some "snowflake" (similar to polarspun, I think) that I'm going to use on my next one. I'm think I'll K it IP at the US vs Sweden game at the world women's hockey championships tonight!

oh good, i'm glad everyone agrees that adults need cuddly friends, too!  i think i'll probably have some pink and black mohair left over from some tops i'm making...if i ever finish those sweaters, i'll make a bunny!

i think polarspun would be great for any plush toy, you could use one of the varigated colors to make a sort of tie-dyed psychedelic bunny...or the ever classic white rabbit, ala alice in wonderland.

that's so cool you're going to a women's hockey championship game, starlings!  women's sports rock!  have fun!

WOW!!!!!!!!!! i like yours with the long ears better than the short ears!!!! i love bunnies with long ears!! anyway, i really don't understand those directions, but then again, i know how to make scarves, but i have no idea what kind of stitch i'm doing! my sister "taught" me by showing me. It was pretty much like, then you put the needle there and loop the string around. so i have no clue how to make anything other than scarves!!!! i also know how to crochet hats!!!! woohoo!!!!!!!  Wink

I followed deliriousdream's suggestions and made a pompom for the tail.  I'm very happy with the results! Thanks dd!
