Easter Bunny Rabbits


Slightly distracted from my Teddy Bear (which is still slowly progressing), I've been knitting some little bunny rabbits for Easter. They are a fairly quick make, and a great way to use up any tiny scraps of wool you have left over. (Each rabbit takes less than 4g of wool.) Although I have stuck to quite realistic colours, it would also be fun to make some in really bright colours.


They are really, really very tiny (about 1 inch or 3 cms wide). 

So if you hate fiddly this is probably not for you
But if you like quick and cute then it is.





Did you know that a rabbit's tail is called a scut? 
My pattern tells you how to easily make a really tiny pom pom for a tail.


I have mainly been using 4ply, but this slightly thicker wool gave an even fluffier looking rabbit.


My husband looked at the growing collection on my work table, and said they really are living up to their name, and breeding like rabbits. If you want to make your own rabbits, the pattern is already on Craftsy, ravelry and Etsy, and will be available later today on LoveKnitting ...

  5. These are adorably cute, I think a little fiddly for me, but I can see how they would be very addictive. I think you'll be doing a bunny hunt around the house instead of an egg hunt :}

  8. Well. They're just totally TOO CUTE!! -- And THAT SMALL?!! - geez! I have bigger DUST-Bunnies than that! [containing the same amount of cotton fiber!]
    Actually, you should put them in little plastic eggs and egg-hunt them that way.
    Awesome job, Girl!
    :-D
