Make bunny puppets for anyone! You could also easily modify the ears to make a dog or mouse.

This pattern is intermediate level. Skills required include knitting stockinette and seed stitch in the round, left and right decreases, m1 increases, and sewing pieces together (the head, ears, and feet are sewn on during the finishing steps). You can use a circular needle with the magic-loop method, or a set of 5 dpns (3.5 mm, US size 4).

The pattern is written in 3 sizes:
Small: 5 1/2” around, 5” long (50 g DK weight yarn)
Medium: 6 1/2” around, 6” long (50 g DK weight yarn)
Large: 7 1/2” around, 7” long (75 g DK weight yarn)

Besides yarn and needles, you will also need 10-14 mm safety eyes or buttons, stuffing, yarn to embroider the nose, scrap yarn for holding stitches, 4 stitch markers, and a tapestry/darning needle. The bow is knit with fingering weight yarn on 3.5 mm needles.
