Miss Bella Bun is full of the joys of Spring and is out and about picking bunches of flowers. She is wearing her favourite Spring outfit.

Miss Bun is knitted in stocking stitch on straight needles, both the front and back of her body are each worked flat following a simple chart and then sewn together. The legs, arms, and ears are knitted flat and sewn into the body, and the pink, inner ears are worked using the intarsia method. She is stuffed with pure wool fleece or toy filler.
This particular Bella Bun, and her bunch of flowers, are knitted in a 4ply (Super Fine, Fingering) pure wool yarn. They require 2 (100% wool; 115m (125 yd)/25 g) balls of yarn and a tiny amount of contrast coloured yarn, to complete. Her skirt and top are knitted in garter stitch with a simple crochet edging, with the same yarn used double. They also require 2 (100% wool; 115m (125 yd)/25 g) balls of yarn to complete.
