felting, knitting


Easter is coming and I had this last minute idea to knit some bunnies for my little bunny and his cousins’ Easter baskets.  The Schmeebot bunny piqued my interest quite a while back and now I have a reason to knit it!  Or should I say three of them.

Here are the gangly legged bunnies before they’re felted and finished off.  The grey one is  knit on larger (too large) needles.  The orange one is knit completely on two dpns like i-cord.  For the larger sections I used a crochet hook to ladder up the loose st pulled across the back.  With a little practice, this technique could work quite well.  The green one is “just right.”  Hmm, did I knit three bunnies or three bears?
