This bunny is a tall drink of water.

Designed for a bulky yarn, Rabbits knit to gauge will measure 16” from head to toe. His height makes him an ideal companion for bigger kids. You’ll need about 180 yards of bulky yarn, a set of double pointed needles, and enough knitting ability to increase, decrease and trust me on the short rows. Honestly, short rows are not bad: just do exactly what the pattern says even if it seems wrong.

Intermediate and above knitters will be fine. Knitters just beginning to work in the round and like a little challenge will be thrilled.

All of the “is for” patterns are compatible. If you want to put the Rabbit’s arms on the Cat (or vice versa) - go for it.
