BUNNY SIZES AND TEXTURE OPTIONS

I get so many great comments from Studio Knitters making my original Bunny from a Square. Most are really excited at how cool it is that such a sweet 3-dimensional softie can be knitted with such easy techniques. I started out by knitting up squares of my most popular knit stitch patterns. For each of these cuties, I cast on 30 stitches using and #10 US Knitting Needles. But you can use any yarn weight, appropriately sized knitting needles, and cast on any number of stitches. Then just knit up a square and make your bunny.

NEW BUNNY FROM A SQUARE VARIATION

Yellow Bunny for Easter - How to Knit Tiny Amigurumi Bunny from a Square

AMIGURUMI BUNNY: Many subscribers wonder how we can get even more creative with this Bunny pattern, especially in size. I’ve received dozens of questions asking if it can be knitted bigger or smaller than my example shown. Absolutely it can be any size! To prove this, I knitted up the smallest possible little Amigurumi Bunny using toothpicks. Really!


SEED STITCH BUNNY KNIT SOFTIE

This Knit Stitch Pattern is called the Seed Stitch because the raised bumps from your PURL stitches resemble seeds. It creates a really pretty and sturdy piece of knitting.
