Top Knit Tips


This sweet little bunny is the perfect way to celebrate the Easter holidays – whether you give her as a gift or keep her on display, she’s sure to bring a smile to everyone who meets her.

To work the carrots on the basket, either wind bobbins for each carrot to work as intarsia colour blocks, or carry both shades across the row for stranded colourwork.

When picking a stuffing to fill your projects, make sure to choose one that’s specifically been approved for use in toys. Not only will it be softer and easier to work with, but you can rest assured that it’s safe for use around children.
