Knit a simple and adorable bunny, with three fun outfits to choose from! This is one of my most popular patterns, even after more than 12 years! It's a great introduction to making knitted toys, and will help you practice skills that you can use to create many of my other patterns.
The toy and outfits are all experienced-beginner level, with the more challenging parts requiring picking up stitches. All pieces are knit flat, then seamed and assembled. The finished toy is about 9" tall, excluding the ears.
Bunny: 50 g of worsted weight yarn, 4 mm knitting needles, stuffing, tapestry needle, 8-10 mm safety eyes or buttons
Jacket and Waistcoat: 20 g of sport weight weight yarn for jacket, 10 g of sport weight yarn for waistcoat, 3.25 mm knitting needles
Hoodie: 35 g of DK or light worsted weight yarn, 4 mm knitting needles
Pinafore Dress: 15 g of fingering weight yarn, 2.75 and 3.25 mm knitting needles
ERRATA: The pattern for the Hoodie is missing Row 2 of the Back and Front. You need to work Row 2 the same as Row 1, so you get a narrow border of seed stitch.
The pattern instruction for the Waistcoat Back should be:
Row 16-17: Repeat Rows 14-15. (24 sts)
