Hi everyone! I hope you're looking forward to this weekend and fun St Patty's Day celebrations. We usually don't do anything, but stay home, since people are usually a little crazy, especially since this year it falls on a Saturday and it's supposed to rain here. Have a fun day, but stay safe!
I do have a small...very small FO. Easter is fast approaching. I decided I wanted to knit little animals for my nieces and put them in the plastic eggs they sell for Easter egg hunts. The most logical place to start is with a few bunnies! I made my first one yesterday from a free pattern shared on the Mochimochi website. In fact, she's even doing a contest giveaway involving these little guys where you can win baskets of Koigu yarn! How fun, right?
It was a very simple pattern, even if you're new to knitting. As long as you know how to knit in the round (she recommends using DPNs, but I used magic loop), kf&b and icord, you can knit this pattern in less than an hour! I used 1 cotton ball for stuffing, which fives you an idea just how little this bunny is!
I really like how it turned out, except for the eyes. I might pull them out and try to make them smaller, but it is kind of yarn. Maybe thread instead of yarn will help. We'll see. I might make the ears a titch longer as well. I'll be making many more!
That's it for me today. I hope you all have a great weekend.
Share your FOs!
