Materials needed

  • 4 double-pointed needles in a size suitable for the yarn weight you are using. I recommend using needles a size or two smaller than the yarn calls for, to produce a firm fabric. Here, I used needles size US 2½ (3mm).
  • White, pink and green coloured yarns for the bunny. I used Gazzal Baby Cotton XL / 50% cotton, 50% akrylic; 50 gr – 105 mt./
  • Toy stuffing
  • Yarn needle
  • Stitch holder
  • 2 beads for eyes
  • Plastic nose
  • Black yarn for mouth

All rows are worked in the round, this helps avoid ugly seams.
