This little bunny is a teeny, tiny little pip-sized pocket friend.
he is knit in the round on a magic loop.
You can knit him up in a couple of hours and can use either sock weight yarn and size 2.25mm needles or in DK weight yarn in which case you should use 2.75mm needles.

This little pip-sized bunny was made using sock weight/fingering/#1 weight yarn and a 2.25mm circular knitting needle. Using this weight yarn will give you a tiny bunny measuring approximately 13 cm in height.

Sock weight / Fingering weight yarn/ #1 Any colors you like…you need very small amounts of each color
The yardage for the sock yarn I used is around 400m/100g (350yds/100g). You will need only a small amount of yarn for the bunny, not 100g! It is a superwash merino yarn, but you can use any alternative fingering weight yarn you like.

Circular Knitting Needles x two pairs 2.25 mm at least 24” in length

Polyester toy stuffing Scissors Tapestry Needle

Sewing Pins

Doll Making Needle or long tapestry needle Fine-nosed pliers/ haemostats

Black Embroidery cotton Perle No. 12 or other embroidery floss

Eyes (plastic safety eyes or glass looped eyes). PLEASE NOTE THAT ATTACHED EYES ARE NOT RECOMMENDED FOR TOYS CREATED FOR CHILDREN! They can be a suffocation hazard. If you are making this toy for a child, rather embroider the eyes using embroidery thread! I would still suggest sculpting the eye sockets before embroidering the eyes…it adds a lovely realistic element :) I have used 3 mm wire looped glass eyes. These can easily be sourced from sellers on eBay and Etsy. I used 6mm eyes for the DK weight bunny.

NOTE: If you would like to use a DK weight yarn, I would recommend using a 2.75mm needle size. The final size of my bunny made using DK weight yarn, was 15cm from the top of the ears to the bottom of the feet.
