The Jackie's Bunny

Hi, here is my bunny. I knitted it for my soul sista's daughter Jackie.

Thanks to Jess for this nice project.

Fuzzyfeet Bunnies!

Thought you all might get a great kick out of this tweak on the Fuzzyfeet pattern created by Theresa Vinson Stenersen for Knitty. I am even more amazed that she was able to felt white Lamb's Pride!

Since we just cannot have a post without pictures, I am shamelessing showing my faceless Fiber Trends Felted Bunny. Sporting a pair of baby "shoes" knitted out of Berroco Suede, he has yet to tell me how to make his face up!

Bunny Slippers

While my family and I were traveling through Ukiah, California this summer, I managed to get a few minutes of yarn shopping in at Heidi's Yarn Haven, a friendly, yarn-packed shop located right downtown. They had these bunny slippers on display, and I just had to buy the Fiber Trends pattern and yarn for them right then and there. I knit them in less than a week, which is pretty good for me since I am easily distracted. They are extremely impractical, but I think they're darling. I have another view of them on the August 12 entry of my blog.

A Bunny Link

I came across this little bunny link today and thought I would share it with all of you. I am finishing up my bag for the tote exchange, then I need to knit my bag for this knit along.
After that I am going to work on a bunny.

New Here

I just joined the bunny along, though I have had a looooooong standing love of bunnies. I don't have a bunny in the works right now though I will soon. At the moment I am testing a doll pattern, then I will decide what bunny to do. Maybe I'll design one.

Hungry Bunny

I created this little guy for Secret Pal 8. You can see how my spoilee liked it here.

Sweater Bunny

I know we are creating rabbits and bunnies, but how about a sweater for a bunny? I caught this link on Cute Overload, and had to share. Now I have been inspired to knit up sweaters for my little rabbits. Getting the rabbits to wear the sweaters will be another issue.

Bunny Block

I used a free pattern on the side link to knit this Bunny Dishcoth as a block for KTC blanket.

It went really fast and it was fun! A few of these would make a great baby shower gift!

Thursday, April 27, 2006


I swear I posted this here already, but I guess I was dreaming or something.

I sent the bunny to my mom on Tuesday, so hopefully it will arrive today or tomorrow at the latest. :)

Another Kate Gilbert bunny

Just for fun. I want to make more of these!

Here's my bunny

Well, strictly speaking it's a crocodile pretending to be a bunny. I got inspired by that bear in a bunny-costume crochet pattern, but found the bear too innocent-looking. So it became Ms. Croco.

Another Bunny

I knit a bunny out of leftovers from a baby cardigan.

And here he is with a face.

Gift Bearing Buns

A pair of custom bunnies (well, kind of - the bunnies are the same as Carat, but instead of bearing carrots, these guys are carrying gifts unique to their recipients!) - now that they are gifted to their new homes, I can finally post them!

Baseball Bunny

A Kate Gilbert Bunny, in black of course. Would look cuter with a fuzzy yarn, or felted, but I used leftovers. The flash makes him look holey, but he's not that bad in person. He likes baseball!

Ant's Bunny

I knitted this bunny for my son, Anthony (age 3)--he carefully put him in the bowl with the eggs I knitted as well. (The eggs are from I used Lamb's Pride wool, size 8 dpn for the bunny, and some cheap cotton yarn for the eggs (also knit on the same dpns).

The bunny is Jess Hutch's pattern, and I added the tail and whiskers. I was pretty happy with the way it came out, although next time I won't stuff the arms as much--they stick out too much!

I am almost done with my next bunny, in a different pattern . . .

Another Felted Bunny!

Another bunny created with the infamous pattern. I used Elann's Peruvian Highland Wool for this year's bunny. You can check out my blog for a couple more pics!

stabbyfelted bunny!

My first 3-d needlefelting project. He's pretty small... only about 2.5" from nose to tail. I made him up as I went, and tried not to bleed directly on the poor bunny as I stabbed the heck out my finger a few times. Fun!

Rosie the Rabbit

I wasn't really happy with how this bunny came out - for me it's all about the eyes - but other people just love it (her)? I think it's because of the yarn - it's Sirdar Snuggly - a bit of a nuisance to knit with but comes out lovely and soft, the stitches don't really show. She is an Alan Dart pattern.
I get embarassed when I show people that I not only knit bunnies - I pose them in the garden for their pictures!

Bunch of Bunnies

I knitted these pastel bunnies, all from the same pattern, when my sister got pregnant with my nephew - he just turned thirteen so I guess I have been knitting bunnies (and other toys) for a while now!

Needlefelted Bun

I made bags for my stepkids and then needlefelted some designs on them. One wanted a bunny sniffing a flower. I whipped this out before we ran out the door to return them. It turns out I perform well under pressure - I'm very happy with the results! I also made them those start-with-a-square bunnies, but since so many people have posted pics of those I didn't bother. Needlefelting is supereasy - try it!

Cute Bunny

I had bought a skein of pink fluffy stuff with the intent to make womb, a knitty pattern for one of my infertility friends but in the end the yarn I bought was too fluffy so I thought....BUNNIES. I found this pattern and got to work. I really like how they turned out and can see myself making more of them.

Brand New !

There's a brand new bunny (free!) pattern at Magknits this issue...
Check it out!

Rag Bunny

I made my own pattern for a rag bunny the other day and put it up in my new website. Hope people like it.

Almost a bunny

Here's the bunny I'm making for my mom:

Image hosting by Photobucket

It's the pattern from Last Minute Knitted Gifts but he doesn't have the insides of his ears yet. Still, he kinda looks like a bunny...

Laurie's Bunny

My knit blog is at:

and I'm currently on a bit of a toy knitting kick and a bunny fan.

This is a picture of the toy I've made for a friend's little girl. It
is a fluffy bunny that was alot of fun to make, and not very hard. The only problem was that this yarn was a bit thin for guage and hence the bunny was a bit "holey" which I remided by darning the holiest bits.

Looking at these pictures it seems I might still do a bit of darning on the feet so the stuffing doesn't show through.

I also made a dress for her based very roughly on the dress in the book

It looks awfully homemade, but it was my first toy (other than catnip mousies!)I hope the little girl will like her.

from it.

The book she was made from was quite fun, and I plan to try a few more toys from it - "Knitted Toys" by Fiona McTague", which I got from the library.

The 3 year old little girl who recieved the toy seemed to like her very well, and she has christened my creature
"Bunny Bunny" - the bunny so nice she named it twice? I hope so!! haha.

Since then I've used the same yarn, Bernat "Symphony " I believe it is called ( a faux mohair type of acrylic yarn..) to knit other toys and have had much more success with doubling the yarn to knit with, usuing around 6 mm or so needles - it is a really nice yarn for a toy I think - nice and soft but still easy to knit as it has puffy fluffies instead of eye-straining "fur" type yarn...

One area I'd like to improve or vary more in my toys is the facial expressions which are done with embroidery, something I'm inexperienced at. Any pointers or good links from you bunny alonger-ers?

I do have some of those "teddy bear eyeballs" but as you all know, you don't want to use those on things for small kids as there is a choking danger.

Also, you can really scare people by replying "Do you sell eyeballs?" when they ask if they
can help you find something in a store...

RUN!! HIDE! It's the bunny army. No green thing is safe. On the far right, General Jack, is conducting a sweep search with his men. Bunstir, Peter, Thumper, and Harry have been with the General on similar mission before so they are prepared. If you feel the need for wee bunnies too go to and look for the free patterns. Have fun!

Carat with and without Carrot!

Don't you want to reach out and give him a hug?

He's an amigurumi bunny that I designed just for the spring :D His pattern includes the carrot - I actually have lots and lots of carrots created for this bunny as they actually do double duty as cat toys.

I stuffed some with catnip, as they are about the same size as the catnip mice I can get at the petshop - I think my cats love em with and without catnip, and they especially like the curly carrot tops. LOL.

For a while, I was cranking out these little guys and the house started looking like the set from Wallace & Grommit's Curse of the Wererabbit!

A bun for a baby :)

Desperate for a quick knitted gift, I did up this bunny for a friend's baby.

From the Heartstrings Bunny Pattern and a swatch knit from Lion Brand Homespun, this little bun was born. Unfortunately he was a bit difficult to photograph indoors, so the front on shot is a little dark.

I love how his little ears curl around. I think he'll become a regular in the repertoire as he's quick to churn out and is baby-safe too :) Very important considering the number of baby gifts I need to get together!

Of course, I couldn't leave you without a tail shot :)

I made his tail with some home-made pompom templates. Gotta love a nice fluffy tail :D

Bunny Sweater

I made this sweater last fall for my niece, so it's not technically easter (or pagan bunny worship day as I prefer to call it). This sweater is a combination of a baby cardigan pattern from knitty and some bunnies that I took from another pattern. I added french knot tails to the bunnies.

I'm excited about bunny themed knitting, so I will come up with some other bunnies to add!

Blue Bun

Here are some photographs of Blue Bun. I sat him in the yellow tulips to make him look more Eastery.

He is of course the Small Rabbit from Debbie Bliss's 'Toy Knits', knitted in Sirdar Donegal Tweed DK: his sweater is Lorna's Laces Worsted in Black Watch.

The first sweater I knitted was a bit small so I knitted him another one so that he was decently covered and warm enough. None of the rabbits in that book have tails – why is that? I think I'll have to make him a tail, as I'm giving him as a present and I'm bound to be asked why he doesn't have one. He's going to go and live with my friend Gail.

I'm planning to do the Angel Rabbit as well, and maybe the Ballerina Rabbit, but I have one or two other things on the needles which I should finish first….

boing boing bunny

i've just joined this adorable and inspired site, thank you for including me. and I'm so in love with my first, just finished bunny baby. yarn is artfibers kyoto & bunny pattern by the amazing jess hutch.

Love the buns!!!

Here's a trio of bunnies -my first is on the left - all garter stitch :). He was done quite a while ago when I was still learning how to knit.

The second followed the pattern a little more faithfully, except I think the swatch was bigger to start with. The third, well, let's just say I was trying for that angora look.

And now for the buns' bun view:

Here's one I did in hot pink fuzzy synthetic. She's one of my faves, but I gave her away to a good home.

I think I need to try some other patterns!

Here is my (first) bunny. Its made from one skein of Elann Peruvian Highland wool, using the pattern by Jess Hutch. I just ordered 'Last-Minute Knitted Gifts' off of Barnes & Noble (I wish they'd stop sending me coupons...) and I want to make the bunny from there too.
