Here is the pattern:

I don't get why they said in the note...

"Rounds are worked in continuous spirals; do not join. Do not turn work at the end of each round."

If I can't join it then, how do I go about working in spirals? Isn't it like making a hat? How do I work in rounds then if I can't join? Thanks!

Hiya Hyper,
K hun, when it says to work in a spiral (uneccessary language in that pattern anyway sheesh, get all the newbies totally confused,) that means that you do a round and instead of joining with a slip stitch to the first stitch of the round all it means is that you continue on (stitch markers are great for these kind of projects) no slip stitches into the first stitch at all. That way it's a nice continuous piece without that bothersome join line going up the bunny. So it's very important that you mark the first stitch on each round so that you know where you started. Move the marker to the first st of each round as you complete it. Use a little safety pin for that.:thumbsup: O yeah, no turning either just go round and round in the same direction.
Hope that helps ya !!

What a cute bunny pattern! Fibrenut said it well - instead of joining at the end of your round, you just keep putting your next stitch in the top of the next stitch. It's sort of like taking a long rope and winding it around, with each round just lying on top of the one before it - you don't cut it off at each round and start a new one. You just keep winding the rope.

Yup - i had problems with understanding that at first (i was doing the pig). You can also count the number of stitches on the round (i did that way the legs, because they weren't getting equal) if it's something small
