I have always wanted a bunny and I’ll always have a rabbit the rest of my life.
- Amy Sedaris

This is a pattern for a stuffed rabbit toy worked using the Fair-Isle knitting technique. It is worked from the feet up and in the round, in 6 pieces, and with embroidery detail over the face. You may work it in 4 or more colours or simply 2. Instructions are given for 4 colour rabbit, but additional charts for 2 colour rabbit are included.
(both rabbits were worked the same, only the colours were changed to protect the innocent)
