Knitted Dust Bunny

Make these cute dust bunnies this summer season and surprise your guests.

What you need

Size eight double point needles.

Yellow Bunny;1 strand worsted weight soft yarn & 1 strand of fun fur.

Blue & White;1 strand Lionbrand Jiffy or a bulky yarn of your choice.

Other Supplies;
Sew on wiggle eyes or yarn to make eyes with. My wiggle eyes are 10mm.


Gauge; Not important, have you ever seen an even dust bunny? LOL

You could use any yarn you want adjusting the size of your needles.

Ears (Make 2);Slip 1st stitch every row on the ears.

Row 2;Purl.

Row 3;Knit 1, increase 1 in next stitch, knit 1.(4 stitches)

Row 5;Knit.

Repeat rows 4 & 5 until the ear measures about 3 & 1/2 inches,working a purl row last.


Row 1; Knit 2 together twice.(2 stitches)

Row 2;Slip 1 Knit 1, pass slipped stitch over the knit stitch.

Cut leaving an end long enough to feed back down theinside of the ear to the bottom, or cut short knot and fray the ends.

bunny at some point before you begin stuffing the dust bunny.
