Free Bunny Blanket Buddy
Lion Brand Bunny Blanket Buddy

Isn't it cute? I ran out to Joann's and got the yarn for it yesterday and I'm over half done already. Velvetspun is a fairly nasty yarn but I wanted it to look just like the photo. It has some YO's in it that show up more if you don't use a fluffy/bulky yarn so I went for the nasty velvetspun btu I think it'll be worth it once I am done!

Anyone want to knit this with me? It's REALLY quick and could easily use up extra stash! Knit it in something washable tho. I am already dreaming of a Rowan Calmer version, or even Plymouth OH MY! I think would be REALLy perfect for it!

that is so adorable!
Do you have a baby in mind for this gift, or is it just an impulse knit? I seem to have a stash of gifts all knit up, but no babies.
I would totally knit this up with you, if ONLY I had the yarn in my stash...sigh.

I might have to try this one....since it says no gauge ...I think I'll make it with Lionbrand Suede. I think I have a couple balls of that somewhere. Won't be able to start this right now but will soon.

Congrats to you mama, and count me in! I have some Encore chunky at home and friend with a baby girl due in a month. I'll cast on tonight.

Is the Velvetspun really hard to work with?

yeah I don't like it at all :( I am at the head now and im supposed to go down 2 needle sizes and my fingers are worried its gonna hurt./ It just doesnt have any stretch or give, and thats the problem.

I've used baby homespun and had them come out great. Also, if you want it smaller, use thinner yarn and smaller needles. A friend of mine did it with two strands of yarn- one cotton and one lion brand microspun- and it came out amazingly soft and about 12" tall...
