Once I saw these bunnies that Svenna made, I knew I had to make
some for the girls one for myself. I bought the pattern and started work right away. When I wasn’t knitting, I was browsing through Ravelry project gallery admiring all of the bunnies that everyone else had made.
There are over 425 completed entries for the girl version alone.
Yes, I might have been obsessed.
But isn’t she worth it?
The pattern is 14 pages long. (Yes, fourteen.) The designer did an amazing job detailing practically every step. She’s brilliant. I learned a lot of new techniques. I made a few mistakes along the way but nothing catastrophic. The bunny is knit flat, and if you aren’t a master of the mattress stitch before… you will certainly be after! A little embroidery and crocheting were required. Neither are my strengths, but she still turned out cute — if I can say so myself!
I honestly can’t think of how I’d improve the pattern, but I know now where to pay attention to avoid mistakes on the next go round. The only part that disappoints me is the shoe. I couldn’t get it to curve just right, so maybe this is something where practice makes perfect.
I’m glad I bought the pattern for the boy bunny as part of the package, because Okey has requested that I make him one, too.
