So much knitting has been going on here this week, scarves and hats and more scarves, I will share all of them with you soon, we are just sewing in ends etc… I have been wanting to knit a rabbit for Easter and seeing as we have real live rabbits of our own as pets, they were the perfect models for my design.
Meet Molly Rabbit, she is such a sweet little rabbit. When knitted up, she measures 6 inches from her paws to the tip of her ears and 7.5 inches from her snout to her tail. Her body is knitted in one piece, flat, in stocking stitch, her ears are knitted in garter stitch and her tail is knitted in the round with circular needles or double pointed needles. Her eyes and nose are needle felted on with fleece and a felting needle.
You can find her pattern in my Mamma4earth Etsy shop .
This is a very special project I am knitting for someone, so I can’t reveal what it is just yet, but soon, I promise. I bought this roving quite a while ago, it is called Pharaoh, I bought it from Manda Craft and oh, how I love the colours! I spun up the roving and the most gorgeous colours were emerging one after another! I can’t wait to be finished knitting, it should be finished by tomorrow:)
