I'm excited to share with you a new knitting pattern I wrote for a sweet stuffed bunny toy. It's called Wee Bunny Rabbits and will be available for sale in a few weeks (in time for your Easter knitting perhaps?) You may remember this post I wrote about searching for the perfect bunny knitting pattern, and at the time it was just what I wanted, but now I think I have an even better one. This time around I wanted more prominent legs with a body shape that was more true to life. It is a pattern for an intermediate knitter as it is knit on double pointed needles and has lots of short rows, but I think the end results are well worth the effort. You can see more photos and read about them here.
I am knitting them using Angora Garden lovely angora yarns in Winter White, Cocoa Bean and Winter Gray colors. There will also be a softer gray and light fawn available after I receive my new yarn in the post (don't you just love getting yarn in the mail? It's my favorite!) The bunnies have the same handspun 100% angora pom pom tails as my older version did and oh are they soft! Along with releasing the pattern I hope to release some kits for these delightful animals that would include angora yarn, wool stuffing, pom pom tail and embroidery floss. All you would need to provide are double pointed needles, scissors, a yarn darning needle and an embroidery needle. You'll be able to request what color bunny as well as the eye and nose color. What do you think? I've always wanted to make kits for my shop and if these do well I'll try assembling kits for my Gnome Family, Teether and Rattles.
