Here is a picture of the little bunnies that I have knitted for my grandchildren. Thanks, Aquaria (http://www.knittinghelp.com/knitting/forum/viewtopic.php?t=26763) for the inspiration. I love your little carrot, but I did not have any orange yarn in my stash. My tails are made from fun fur. I just knitted a little square, gathered it around the edges, and sewed it on -- no need for any stuffing.

My tip: After blocking the knitted square, use safety pins to mark all the points (A, A', B, B', etc.). The safety pins will stay in while you gather and stuff the head.

Thanks everybody. It is amazing to me that you can turn a flat square into a cute bunny! Just follow the directions.

Hello aineepooh1,

Thanks!

Knitting the 6-inch square is the easiest part. I used size 5 needles and sport weight yarn (all the colors were left over from a baby blanket that I made 4 years ago). Block the square so the edges don't curl, and then mark all of the points as in the diagram on the directions. I used straight pins to mark the semi-circle for the head, and safety pins for the other points. Of course the first one takes the longest because you are figuring everything out. I can do one now in a couple of hours. The directions are really quite clear. I'm happy to answer any questions.
