To make this cute bunny, you will be casting on then knitting every stitch, every row, until your knitted piece makes a square. Casting off, then following some a few sewing instructions to make the bunny take shape. For stuffing you can use old rags, toy fillers, even old socks!
Don’t forget to make a cute Pom Pom for their tail 🙂
Why Learn to Knit?
We know that what is going on in our world and in our communities is not easy at the moment – especially for those who are facing long stretches of isolation and uncertainty. But we also know that there is a simple and comforting way to turn the unexpected time at home into a wonderful opportunity to knit, become creatively active and bring some focus and calm to your day. So we encourage you to pick-up sticks again, to teach your family, and to learn yourself if you haven’t yet had the chance.
We encourage you to stay home, stay calm and stay healthy. We hope where possible you can use your time for good, perhaps less digital and more mindful. Focus on healthy, engaging activities and learnings … and we wish you all the best during this stressful time.
