one bunny to rule them all


Is it just me or can you detect a slightly maniacal glint in those button eyes? The latest addition to our ever-growing knit bunny family is this adorable monster. Here he is next to one of my normal-sized bunnies for scale. (Read more about another knit bunny here, and check out the designer's blog Little Cotton Rabbits.)

He stands about 26 inches tall, or 34 inches if you put his ears straight up. For comparison, my other bunnies measure only 11 inches, including ears. This guy was created using the exact same knitting pattern, just with thicker yarn and larger knitting needles. I did have to make some adjustments to the sweater pattern to accommodate his extra large belly. His sweater is made from yarn I had leftover after making my sweater, so now we have matching outfits (although I usually choose to wear pants with mine, and he has clearly decided to go without).

Isn't his little tail cute? I included all the details from the original pattern, including the button closure on the sweater in case he wants different clothes in the future.

I finished knitting him back in January, but haven't had a chance to take photos until now. He's currently relaxing on the IKEA daybed we finally built last week (the boxes have been sitting in the hallway upstairs since November). Additional knitting project details are available on my Ravelry page.
