  1. Peggy Cartwright says:

    Before I start, I would appreciate it if you answered all the questions above, also to woman who asked, I think by st-st, she means stockinette stitch… and be careful, it says ‘inch’ where it should say inc, meaning increase.

  2. With norman yarn, (like red heart super saver) you have to triple the pattern.

  3. I am having a very hard time figuring out how to put these pieces together! Do I make 2 body and 2 head pieces? Can anyone give me tips on how to put all the bunny parts together? Thanks so much! Amber

  4. It is so cute! I wish I could make one. It looks like it is for advanced knitters. Maybe next year!

  5. um…can somone tell me the gauge…i don’t have any powder puff yarn and i was gonna make it with like ordinary yarn or loop st or somthing.

  6. How do you do the head?

  7. These bunnies are so cute! I really get inspired!

  8. extremely adorable so cute
    Love it !

  9. Tog means together. So you knit two sts together. This looks so great. Getting onto it now. Should only take me about two hours to knit and finish it up. :) :) :) :) :)

  10. Do you continue knitting on from the leg to the foot. Like, is it joined or do you cast off at the leg before starting the foot? And i know what st-st means now :)
