What’s cuter than a knit bunny? An entire band of bunnies! This little A-Line cardigan is not only cute, but it’s a blast to make. Knitted from the top down, this design features a garter stitch border with buttons down the front, and a charming row of rabbits at the bottom. The row of bunnies are stranded, with cabling and bobbles to make them stand out. They are knitted on a reverse stocking stitch panel, while the rest of the garment is knitted in plain stocking stitch.
