They are cute all year-round, but there is just something about the imminent arrival of Spring that makes me squeal over wee little rabbitses.
I have been wanting to knit this particular bunny family for a long time – ever since I saw them on display at the Knitting at KNoon booth at TNNA (2010, maybe?). This year, I’m all about knitting what has been on the backburner of my knitting list for a while, so I snagged up some of the Sublime Organic Merino Dk in bunny colors and went to town.
I have two of the large and one of the small bunnies. I also prefer my bunnies unadorned, so I did not knit the accessory items (an apron, neckerchief, carrot, basket and flowers) that come along with the pattern.
They knit up very quickly and I’m hoping to have a few more of the small bunnies made up for Easter. A basket of bunnies is just the thing for Spring!
The pattern is Bunny Hop by Chris de Longpre, of Knitting at KNoon.
