WRITTEN INSTRUCTIONS to Knit a Bunny from a Square

To begin, we will cast on any number of stitches you chose!

In this example shown, I am casting on 30 stitches with size 7 US knitting needles and worsted weight yarn.

Knit your piece in the Garter Knit Stitch Pattern until your piece is a perfect square. The Garter Stitch is simply knitting the Knit Stitch every single row.

The easiest way to determine when you have knitted an equally sided square is to match up your corners.  Then, it’s time to bind off.

Now, we will loosely stitch a triangle shape using yarn and our tapestry needle. First, we will stitch all the way across our piece in the middle. Then, form a triangle. With both of our yarn ends on the side of our piece, place a ball of stuffing, then cinch up your piece.

Your bunny’s head and ears are immediately formed! Too cool!

Then, just stitch up the back.

Finish your bunny with a little pompom for its tail. I like just winding yarn around a fork to make mini pom poms.

Give your bunny extra personality by embroidering a face in any colors and features you chose. I am adding eyes, a nose, and whiskers.

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!
