Mr. Rabbit

Mr. Rabbit is finished!

Here’s Mr. Rabbit before a bath

right after the bath

and accessorized.

As some of you may notice I did not use the left-over yarn from my mitten project after all. The yarn breaks very easily and the mere thought of using the yarn in this project was just putting me off. So I chose Sandnes Fritidsgarn instead. I’m glad I did because I would have broken the other yarn many many times when making the i-cords.

I used the yarn for stuffing as well. The rabbit was felted in 60 C degrees as I knew from experience that the white colour of this yarn doesn’t felt well. The result was a very sturdy rabbit. He’s also a bit chubbier than his colleague. I suspect that he ate too many Easter eggs while I turned my back away. He says that I just cast on too many stitches while not paying attention to the pattern. Oh, well. Little chubbyness doesn’t hurt a rabbit, does it?

P.S. When I looked out of the window the morning after the rabbit was born I saw these:

I think it was Mr. Rabbit.
