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.
