This pattern is written in English only.
Finished size: approx 18cm (7 inches) from the tip of the toes to the top of the head.
The pattern comes with full instructions for knitting and finishing a little bunny with removable clothes which is a small-scale version of my larger rabbits. These little rabbits are designed to be knitted with exactly the same yarn weights and needle sizes as their larger cousins. Using both the larger and smaller sized patterns you can knit a whole family of rabbits.
Included are instructions to knit a dotty dress, a striped sweater and a pair of shorts. There are also 3 options for the design of the head, a single coloured bunny, a bunny with an eye patch and a Dutch bunny with a blaze on its nose.
The file is 19 pages long and contains over 50 detailed step-by-step photographs along with full pattern instructions and tips for stuffing, seaming and finishing neatly. It is more of a ‘how to’ manual than a simple knitting pattern.
The pattern is for knitting flat on two needles and all pieces are seamed afterwards.

- Worsted or light aran yarn for the bunny
