I made this super cute little bunny for my niece's first birthday. It took me about 3 hours to knit all the pieces, and an equal amount of time to add the stuffing and stitch all the pieces together. I made a few modifications:

  • I used Cascade 220 with US7 needles instead of Lamb's Pride with US8 needles

  • Rather than knitting the head and body as separate pieces, I knit them as one. I think the finished product would look better if they were knit separately, but I was feeling lazy. You can see some stretched stitches around the neck of my bunny, those would probably not be there if I had knit the two pieces separately and then kitchener-stitched them together

  • I made the arms and legs a few rounds longer than the pattern called for

  • I put the eyes and nose on after I stuffed the head, and I needle-felted them instead of embroidering them
