Completed: Bunny

lmkg bunny

Started: 2.24.07
Finished: 3.17.07~ish
Pattern source: Last-Minute Knitted Gifts, by Joelle Hoverson
Yarn: Whatever the book recommended--I think it was two skeins of Blue Sky Alpacas 100% Sport Weight Alpaca, probably in Taupe or Light Tan, along with one skein of Joseph Galler Belangor in the light pink color

The pattern was very easy, and this was a very quick project. It turned out great, minus the neck, which is strategically covered by the scarf above. That was my fault though--I really liked the way the bunny looked less than fully stuffed, sort of flat, really, so I sewed it up like that. I didn't realize that it made the neck look really bad that way--if I gathered it like the pattern suggested, it had a bunch of pucker lines, and if I didn't gather it, it had a strangely wide neck. As it is I've left it ungathered and strangely wide but covered by a scarf. I wonder if I did the embroidery for the nose/mouth differently if I would like it more. Possibly. Anyway, it turned out cute enough, so I'm not displeased.

As a warning to those of you who may think about making this, I barely got the two skeins of alpaca to make it through the whole project. Actually, I did not--I ended up using a similar looking yarn to sew some of the bunny together, because I totally ran out of the alpaca. Oh, and as a side note, I think it is possibly my favorite yarn I have ever worked with...so so soft.


sigh... so cute! I think the scarf makes the bunny look complete. I've been looking at that pattern for a while - think I have to try it out!
Omgosh! I want to knit this for a friend's daughter! I'm going to amazon right away to look for the book. Thanks for the recommendation!

Hi! I'm Brin. I caught your comment on my blog yesterday... the one with the bathroom re-do... and just wanted to say hello. And thanks! I appreciated your kind comments about the space, and was really encouraged by it. Some have called my decorating ideas "boring" before, (although I like to say they are "peaceful"!), so positive feedback is welcomed!

So glad to find another fellow knitter. I'll have to have my needles surgically removed one day, I think...

Again, thanks for stopping by! I'm off to buy that book now... :D

What a cute little guy! I've been eyeing those patterns, but the last bear I knit took forever (it was a Debbie Bliss pattern), so I'll have to give it some time before I'll make one again.
What a cute bunny :)
I am genuinely glad to glance at this website posts which contains plenty of
