Notes

Since I wanted to use as much of the purple mohair as possible I didn’t do the bloomers as part of the body, but instead knit a pair that could be taken on and off. Basically used the same pattern as for the top of the leg, but then decreased. After decreasing so I had a slightly balloon shape, I bound off a third of the stitches to be the center crotch of the bloomers. Did two, put them together on one set of DPNs and knit around, decreasing some more. Added 2x2 rib at the top to give a little stretch for getting them on and off. Put lace edging on the bottom.

The clothes were knit of left over sock yarn (superwash). Still, I hand washed quite harshly with lots of rubbing and agitation to soften yarn and bring a bit of bloom. Bunny is really fuzzy and clothes are slightly fuzzy. Both feel soft.

Embroidered a heart on the chest and made an embroidered face. I am happy with this!!! No clicking done until I have a good picture, though.
