Last Minute Knitted Bunny



Meet Pants. He's named pants because it looked like I was knitting a little pair of pants for most of his creation. Pants! Hehe!

Made from Joann's Angel Hair in the "Sensations" line and Bernat Soft Boucle for the ears and nose. Mmm...fuzzy! Cute little eyes to boot!

What I learned? How to use 2 circs to make one round thing. I don't think this is the magic loop technique, but I could be wrong. Pretty darn cool. Of course, this technique forces you to buy double the amount of needles (or use my 2 interchangeable sets).

No, it's not, it's the two circulars technique.

I love the bunny!

He is so cute! You have a cute bunny couple...

2 circ method for the bunny - what do you need the 2 socks on 2 circs book for? :)

Hi Karen,

"Pants" is knit from the bunny pattern in the book "Last Minute Knitted Gifts". I hope that helps, its a great book! There's an elephant too!

Thanks Shannon,
MY girlfriend has that book. She owns the local yarn shop. Talk about up close and personal with your dealer.
