FO - Chocolate Bunny
He didn't come out quite as well as I'd hoped. His ears aren't long enough and I thought I followed the pattern as written. I think there is an error in the pattern from #43 on. For one thing it would be lopsided since it doesn't have you do the decreases on both sides so I did them anyway. I suspect I should have knit a plain row in between decreases, but it doesn't say so I didn't. Hence the short ears. Cute enough I guess though.

ETA: Just looked and Ravelry and everyone elses looks fine so it's something I did wrong.

I think it is adorable, particularly the way he is sitting. Good job.

Thanks! Someone on Rav said the same thing, Julie.

I cut the zipper part off a snack size bag, put some rice in it and then folded it over and stapled it then folded it again to fit the bunny and taped it. It helps him stand up.

Also... Instead of picking up stitches with the yarn attached I bound off. Then I picked up all the way around and went 'backwards' so the ridge would be on the outside..makes it stand flatter.

Yum! Is it a 'cover' for a real hunk of bunny shaped chocolate, or, just stuffed with fluffy stuff?
