I've made a couple of these as presents. The pattern calls for a 6x6" swatch, but you certainly make a larger one. They're pretty cute:

I was suprised to see this post. I am just finishing my bynny right now . .. what a coincidence. I didn't use bits and pieces though, I bought Debbie Bliss's Cotton Angora. It got so many bad reviews but I just had to try this yarn and it screamed this project. The bunny is very cute. . . I never thought of making it bigger. I will do that with the leftovers.

Does anyone have any thoughts on how to convert this pattern to a 'lop eared' rabbit? I would like to knit some bunnies that look like my lop Louise.

Maybe just a rock in the ear to hold it down?

Kim, maybe if you attach the ear so it's facing down instead of up? Or knit it in a much looser gauge?

EEEE! I finished mine last night, and if I do say so myself he is ADORABLE!! He's done in dark green Wensleydale handspun. I altered the pattern a bit and gave him a knit tail instead of a stuffing one, and stitched on eyes and a nose. I am definitely making more of these, although I don't know what I'll do with them all. Maybe donate them to a children's hospital? Hmmm... Anyway, this was a fun & quick project, and hardly used any yarn at all.

Thank you so much for this wonderful pattern! I'm trying very hard to slow down on my pattern collection due to space but this was a must have. Every year, our church puts together boxes to send to missions that we support for Christmas presents. I'm not a fast enough knitter for mittens and scarves but I think these will be appreciated.

I just bought the Bliss Botton Angora blue color for my boss' soon to be born baby boy. And I wanted to make something out of the scraps, but I didn't know what...THIS IS PERFECT!!! It will make a great outside of the box decoration. THANK YOU!

Katie, make an L with your thumb & forefinger. This represents the corner of the square. Your thumb is the edge leading from the head to the corner, and your forefinger is the edge leading from the corner towards the back of the square. Now bring your fingers together so your thumbtip is touching your finger tip, keeping both finger & thumb straight. That is exactly what you are going to do with your square. Fold the fabric so the "tip of the thumb" meets the "tip of the forefinger" and stitch starting near the head and working towards the corner. You'll note that the head edge is a little shorter than the side edge, but it all works out in the end. And yes, the little guy will go through several odd stages, including frog. . .

I have to say, this bunny is absolutely adorable. No, I haven't made one (yet) but have seen one "in the flesh" so to speak.... The idea of making a bunch for a Children's Hospital is great. I wonder how they would look using different knit techniques? Maybe a purled bunny?
