Today we’re knitting up the Bunny Cable Knit Stitch Pattern!
This sweet cable and bobble design brings out the most adorable little bunny rabbit shape, perfect for your Easter and Springtime knitting!
The Bunny Cable itself is simply 8 stitches in the middle of A knitted square shape. I have underlined the Bunny Cable portion within the written pattern, if you would like to modify the base of your square. Hope it helps!
I was inspired to create this easy to follow knitted square pattern after seeing the Heirloom Bunny Blanket by Stacylynn Cottle. If you wish to make a gorgeous, large blanket, make sure to check her pattern out!
