In knitting terms, its Easter – always have to start these things early!
So, what have I been making for Easter?
Cute, aren’t they? Also, super simple. Its a free online pattern by Lebinslustiger.
Essentially you knit a square, do some crafty sewing, add a pom pom and voila! Adorable bunny! I’ve knitted a bunch of squares and taken them to work, asking if people want a knitted Easter bunny, with a little twist – they do the sewing themselves.
It worries me how many people simply go ‘I cant do that’ and honestly believe they cant. Ok, only one of the ‘bunnies’ made at work looks like mine above, but they do all look like rabbits!
Slightly misshapen, lumpy rabbits, but rabbits!
Have a few more (hilarious) lunches to go and see how many more people I can convince to try…
My other Easter like knit?
This cutie. Another free pattern, this one by LionBrand.
Felix got an Ikea barnyard with animals. Its adorable, but it didn’t have a sheep! I couldn’t have that, so this little guy is now with the rest of her set. Hmm. What other animals should she have?
This week I used just the one ball, I’ve been distracted sewing bunnies. I was also kindly given three balls! I love getting wool as a gift, especially when its random, ‘saw this and thought of you’ gifts. Full wool count summary below!
