I was given a bundle of chunky tapestry wool by a friend and decided to make these little rabbits. I simply knotted 13 lengths together. I didn’t sew in the knots – I just pulled them all through to the inside, so they didn’t show. (I know – cheating!)
Using 4 mm needles and chunky wool
Cast on 14 stitches
Knitting throughout, work 40 rows.
Ears (make two)
Using chunky wool
Cast on 6 and knit 3 rows. Cast off
I used some snowflake wool donated by another friend. I cast on 5, knitted 5 rows and cast off.
Sew the cast off edge to the cast on edge and gather around one end.
Gather the base of each ear and sew in place.
Gather around the perimeter of the tail.
Use one end as stuffing and sew to the back of the rabbit.
Finish off with some googly eyes!
