This bunny is so simple as it is made from a knitted square – any size is fine. (This one is in 8ply wool on 4mm needles and 28 stitches across.)
With the same coloured wool (I have used contrasting wool here so you can see more clearly) and a very big running stitch – stitch across the middle of the square (fold in half if you want to be accurate.) Make sure you have a secure knot at the end as the thread will be pulled later.
Then stitch up into one half of the square to make a triangular shape – as in the picture
As you start to pull this thread you can see the head and ears of the bunny start to form.
Before you pull it too tight – push in some stuffing (I have used pure wool here but you could use polyester)
Pull the thread tight and make a couple of stitches through the hole to secure.
Next – stitch down the back of the bunny (square section) leaving a hole big enough to stuff this section.
As you get to the end of this part – pull the thread quite firmly so that this point comes up to the bunnies neck and make a couple of stitches to secure it.
I then position the ears how I’d like them with a few stitches at the base of the ear (to close that bottom part of the ear)
To make the tail I like to get a little ball of unspun fleece and use a dry felting needle to attach it to the body. As an alternative – just make a tiny pom pom and sew it in place. Experiment with alpaca or angora wool if you’d like a fluffier bunny! Have fun with it….
