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).

Cute!  what size needles did you use? 

Thanks much.  I added the info to the OP.

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.

I saw this at CRAFTzine, and was inspired to cover my measuring tape.  Thanks for the idea!

I ended up doing a (10 dc in a ring, 20 hdc, 30 sc) for each cookie half, and a strip of 2 rows of sc for the icing.  I whipstitched the whole thing together around the measuring tape.  I had a little bit too much icing, but I just folded it inside and tacked it down.

Thanks, Niki.  I didn't get home until today (was on a trip), but I see your reply here, and have picked up your 2 messages.  I did not accuse you of stealing.  The patterns are eerily similar, so I had reason to believe that you had copied it, without knowing that such copying is not above board.  In my mind, the difference is that stealing is done with a sinister intent, and I did not believe that your intentions were evil.  As I mentioned in my efforts to contact you on your blog and in Ravelry, I thought this was an honest mistake, and if it was, that I didn't mind if the pattern was republished, as long as I was credited as the creator. I see now that you came up with the same pattern independently, and I accept and thank you for that explanation.  However, I am not responsible for what people post on your blog, or elsewhere, and if you look at my comments alone, they are not "flaming", as it were.   I am sorry others caused you pain, but I assure you that I did not encourage such comments, nor do I know the people who posted them.

ETA: I know not everyone will agree, but I've tried to remove as much of this issue from the thread as I can (which so far is only my own posts), so that it's not here forever, besmirching reputations and what not.  I consider the matter resolved, so there's no need for the trail to be stored here.

Ummm, what is an alien facehugger? It sounds a little scary. Looks cool, but sounds scary. Cheesy

It's from the movie series, which started with Alien.  There's a picture of the facehugger in action, here (scroll to the middle of the page).
