A new friend for Big Bunny and Little Bunny
Since you first met Big Bunny and Little Bunny, they’ve had a few adventures. They explored Nottingham, looking for carrots. They visited Avignon and were nearly rabbi-napped! They’ve been to London and nibbled on carrot cake at the V&A. So much excitement for these bunnies.
Well, they’ve had a lot of fun recently meeting my students coming the How to Knit classes. And best of all, from the bunnies point of view, was that my students made their own Bunny from a Square! More bunnies spreading their cute happiness.
A new friend
We associate bunnies with Easter, so of course Little Bunny and Big Bunny now have a new friend: Easter Bunny.
Gosh, Easter Bunny, you are bright, but it is Spring, so that’s alright.
Easter Bunny’s first adventure
Easter Bunny is rather inquisitive. He’s been exploring the garden with Little Bunny and Big Bunny.
What a cute tail!
What’s he sniffing? Must be these lovely primroses.
What else might he find? Well if he looks up, high up for such a small bunny, then he’ll see these golden daffodils.
And some narcissi.
And even some rosemary.
But I think his favourite is the primrose. Just the right size for a small bunny to sniff. Oh, Easter Bunny, you must not nibble the flowers!
Make your own Easter bunny
Making a Bunny from a Square would be a great project for the coming week. Here are the links to my instructions, photos and a video showing you how to make your Easter Bunny: Part 1: knitting and Part 2: sewing.
You can use any yarn and any sized square, however, you’ll find the sewing part is easier with a larger square. So, if you’re using double knit yarn, then cast on a minimum of 30 stitches; 40 would be better. And use slightly smaller needles than you would normally for the yarn, so if you’re using double knit yarn use 3.50 mm needles.
