Hare we are again!
A new Month - and a new #freebeefridayknits - Happy Feb folks!

Now - I originally designed this to be a wheatsack hare - one that lies over your shoulders and across your neck to gently relieve daily aches and pains…

However - I knitted it too small!! I wanted to use this yarn (Cascade Heathers Kansas) because the shade is perfect - but I should have up-ed my needle size and used the yarn double - (on my ‘to do’ list…)

So instead - he’s become a piece of object d’art/ soft sculpture in and around my house - I may even do some embroidery work on him (if I do I’ll post it on my Instagram @dotpebbles account)

Having said all that - he was still great to knit - almost all in one piece - but flat and in my signature garter stitch…

What size you make yours is up to you… (would make a great grain sack soother ‘though!)
