FO: Bunny Blanket Buddy

Hi everyone! I'm so glad to be finished with the bunny blanket buddy; it was pretty easy to make, but I really didn't like using the Velvetspun yarn. However, I'm pretty pleased with how the bunny blanket buddy turned out! :D

oh that's adorable! My neighbor is having a boy "they think" but she isn't convinced--baby wouldn't smile nice for the ultrasound! So, I may have to consider this for baby vs. pink little booties!

Do you have a pattern link?

It looks so cozy with that velvet spun yarn though...didn't like working with it or how it turned out? Does it shed?

How sweet is that! And it looks soooo soft. Great job!

Thanks, everyone! I don't think I can post a pattern "link", since it's from the Lion Brand web site and I tried to send it to someone else and it asked them to log in, but if you just go to and search "Bunny Blanket Buddy" you will find both the knit and crochet versions.

Bethany: I love how it turned out and it is VERY soft, but I just did not enjoy working with the Velvetspun. It has no "stretch" on the needle and so you must "force" the needle into the stitches...does that make sense? I am pretty picky about yarn, though, lol. I have heard that it can also be made with cotton; if I ever make another one, I will probably try it with cotton. The Velvetspun really only shed when I began weaving in the ends. That being really was a pretty easy project (my first time knitting "short rows" -- so easy!) and I'm glad I made it. :D

I love the blanket bunnies! I have made several of them in different medium. My favorite is cottontots yarn (I had 3 skeins left). It's so soft and much easier to knit that velvetspun.

That looks great btw!
