Frances the Easter Bunny: There is a photo circulating of a toy someone else made from this pattern. If you prefer that toy’s outfit to the ones included in this pattern, the cardigan is from my Kangaroo pattern, and the dress pattern is free on my blog.

Pattern includes instructions for short and floppy ears, and three outfits: Jacket and Waistcoat, Hoodie, and Pinafore Dress. All pieces are knit flat, then seamed, stuffed, and assembled. Outfits all fit my other 8-9” size toys.

Yarn and needle requirements:
Toy: 50 g of worsted weight yarn and 4 mm knitting needles
Jacket and Waistcoat: 20 g of sport weight weight yarn for jacket, 10 g of sport weight yarn for waistcoat, 3.25 mm knitting needles
Hoodie: 35 g of DK or light worsted weight yarn, 4 mm knitting needles
Pinafore Dress: 15 g of fingering weight yarn, 2.75 and 3.25 mm knitting needles

ERRATA: The pattern for the Hoodie is missing Row 2 of the Back and Front. You need to work Row 2 the same as Row 1, so you get a narrow border of seed stitch.
The pattern instruction for the Waistcoat Back should be:
Row 16-17: Repeat Rows 14-15. (24 sts)

Tip: For the long ears, you just need to add extra garter stitch rows. To make them extra-floppy, use 4.5 or 5 mm needles, instead of the 4 mm needles suggested in the pattern.
