Who doesn’t love a mini?

Grab your leftover sock yarn, you only need 15 grams (not including the pom-pom tail), and get started making your own Mini-Bunny Loves!

These sweet little bunnies are knit seamlessly from the bottom up, in one piece, up through the ears. The feet are then picked up and knit onto the body. Super easy, fun construction for all.

Quince & Co. Finch comes in 50 grams skeins and you could make 3 Mini-Bunny Loves from one skein!

Here is some information for you:
Finished measurements:

  • About 3 ¼ inches tall without the ears
  • About 6 inches tall including the ears

Yarn: Approximately 15 grams of sock or fingering weight yarn, not including the pom-pom tail.
Note: You may want to have a few extra grams to make to make sure you have enough.

The gray samples are knit in Quince & Co. Finch in the Kumlien’s Gull, and Kittywake colorways. The pom-pom tails are in Quince & Co. Chickadee in the Dogwood and Glacier colorways.

The striped bunny is knit in 15 Colour Rainbow by Fab Funky Fibres on Etsy.

Needles: US size 1 double-pointed needles, set of 4 or size to obtain gauge

Gauge: 8 sts per inch in stockinette stitch

Yarn needle
Ruler or tape measure
Detachable stitch marker
Embroidery floss in black for the eyes and mouth
Small amount of sport weight yarn for the pom-pom tails as for the gray bunnies
Note: The rainbow bunny uses the same yarn for the bunny and the pom-pom tail.
Poly-pellets (Warning: Use with caution. Poly-pellets are considered a choking hazard for infants and young children.)
1-inch pom-pom maker (I used the Clover pom-pom maker.)
