These were the patterns (although I ended up knitting all but the booties in 2 strands of the LionBrand Microspun):

Sweater: http://www.minidata.co.nz/major/freepatt/patt01.htm

The hat was based loosely off of this http://www.knitwits-heaven.com/soft_...k_baby_hat.htm but the "brim" pattern was adjusted to match the sweater

Booties: http://tangleknits.blogspot.com/ (scroll down about 1/2 way). Again, the pattern stitch at the top of the booties was changed to match the sweater

Woobie: http://cache.lionbrand.com/patterns/...tml?noImages=0 (again, the pattern was adjusted from all garter to some garter edging with the rest in stockinette so that it matched the sweater)

As I said earlier I couldn't figure out the head on the bunny so just ended up joining the stitches and knitting it in the round. I was a little nervous that a baby could pick the stuffing out through the stockinette so I stuffed an old knee high with the fiber fill and then stuffed that into the knitting... I think I understand how I SHOULD have made the head now from reading these posts - I'm going to have to cast on some stitches and try it to see if I do have it right
