Big Bunny Knitting Pattern

Big Bunny is a bundle of soft, cuddly fun. With huge floppy ears and large bunny feet he is sure to be a “big” favourite!

Big Bunny is 60cm /23.5” tall- that’s a lot of bunny to hug!

He has a cute blue waistcoat and matching blue nose, a sweet smiling face and of course big floppy ears.

Starting at the neck his body is knitted seamlessly in the round from the top down, much like a sweater! this makes Bug Bunny not only quick to make up, but robust enough to withstand a lot of energetic cuddles and play.

His head is also knitted on double pointed needles and simply seamed to the body at the neck, and the ears are each knitted in a single piece, so there is only minimal sewing up required.

This 9 page pattern is arranged so you can print just the pages you are working from. The pattern is given row by row so you can easily keep your place.

This pattern is suitable for intermediate or confident beginners.

My sketch book is always full of new toy and doll characters waiting to be created in yarn.

I love bringing them to life with my knitting needles!

I spend my days in my sunny studio with my Siamese cat for company.

Surrounded by colourful yarn, my hands are busy clicking the knitting needles or sketching current ideas.

I create dolls and toys to celebrate the seasons and important times in people’s lives, Christmas and Easter- New babies and snuggly tired toddlers.

In between creating new dolls and teddy bears. I’ve created patterns for knitting magazines and worked with retail firms to create knitting kits.

I started out selling my knitted and felted bags at Craft and Design events where I enjoyed meeting other knitting enthusiasts.

It was these knitters who convinced me to publish my patterns for others to enjoy.

I do hope you enjoy your knitting project and if you would like to read more about my work please visit my website
