We're making these adorable angora bunnies this Saturday afternoon and next - I hope you can join us, but if not, you can order the yarn here, Also, I want to share a few tips with you.
First, although the pattern doesn't say so, you'll want to knit the ears first so you can use all the rest for the bunny's body. This stuff is so beautiful, you won't want to waste even a tiny bit!
Second, find a sturdy cotton or wool yarn to do the seaming. You'll need something that won't break when you pull it tight as you make the head and the adorable paws.
The Galler French Angora is classified as a dk weight yarn, but I used a size 8 needle to make a 6" square. This beautiful angora blooms so much that you there will be plenty of fluff even at this looser gauge. See how fuzzy!
It's lighter than air, and those long beautiful fibers are softer and more luxurious than you can imagine.
You'll need a bit of white fiber fill to stuff your bunny. A small ball of fiberfill makes a perfect little cotton-tail.
I look forward to seeing you Saturday for bunny-making!
