ps: I just realized that this was the third 52Knits post within one week. Sorry I promise there will be a variety of fun posts this month because a) it’s SPRING which means LESS RAIN and MORE PHOTOS, b) my mom will come here next week and we’ll do lots of fun stuff, e.g. a road trip to the Rockies and lots of adventures in Vancouver and c) I’ll go home in less than three weeks!!! crazy.
52 Knits // Fluffy Bum BunnyApril 1, 2012
Yarn Used: body: Cascade Yarns Ecological Wool(100% wool), tail: Katia Tupa(50% merino, 50% silk)
Modifications: I attempted to crochet a flat bottom but I realized that it might’ve been a better idea to follow the pattern or at least know the basics about crochet – whoops. Well it’s closed and it stands (more or less) flat 🙂
Notes: This is one of those typical ‘it’s 11pm and you’re suppose to go to bed soon but you’d much rather make something’ projects. I looked through some patterns I bookmarked a while ago and this cute bunny was the perfect late-night project. It took me longer to make than I had expected (about two hours) but it was fun and easy. Also, it’s perfect to get rid off some scrap yarns
My bunny looks pregnant because I was a little generous with the stuffing but it just adds to his charm. When I finished the tail it reminded me of the “it’s so fluffy I’m gonna die” video because it’s sooooo soft. If you’re looking for a gorgeous, soft yarn I highly recommend a merino/silk blend 🙂
