This sweet Wee Bunny Rabbit is knit in the round using DPN’s (alternatively you could use 2 circulars or magic loop method) with a tight gauge. The body is knit from neck down first, stuffed and then stitches are picked up along neck edge for knitting the head. All legs and ears are knit separately in the round and sewn on to the body and head after words.

I used wonderful yarns from Angora Gardens all in a DK / light worsted weight: Winter White (65% wool 35% angora), Winter Gray (57% wool 25% angora 18% alpaca) and Cocoa Bean (75% Shetland wool 25% angora.) Having the angora content in the yarn gives the bunny a nice fuzzy halo.
