Add this to your Ravelry Queue HERE.

Finished size:

  • Approximately 12 inches tall from tips of ears to bottoms of legs


  • Bunny: 9.5 sts across x 9 rows = 2” square
  • Sweater: 7 sts across x 5.5 rows = 2” square rows = 2” square


  • All parts of the bunny are worked in continuous rounds.  Do not join at the end of the row, unless indicated.  A stitch marker is used to keep track of the beginning of the round.
  • For a cleaner SCDEC, do your SCDEC under the front loops only of the stitch rather than under both loops.  This is often referred to as an invisible decrease. Find a tutorial HERE.
  • The CH 2 at the beginning of every row in the sweater and in the CH spaces do not count as a stitches.
  • The sweater is worked in a raglan, top-down method.  The piece is worked flat to create the neckline, armholes are created and then the body of the sweater.  Yarn is rejoined at the armholes to create the sleeves.
