Bunny Cable Knit Stitch Pattern by Studio Knit

This sweet Bunny Cable Knit Stitch Pattern brings out the most adorable little bunny rabbit shape, perfect for your Easter and Springtime knitting! The twisted cables create the backside of an adorable bunny, complete with bobble tail. The Bunny Cable itself is simply 8 stitches in the middle of a knitted square shape. You can get really creative with this pattern, easily knitting up blankets, scarves, and pillows.
