Little Knit Bunnies In The Garden

Take a peek at my little knit bunnies in the garden enjoying the flowers. They were knit from Julie Williams Little Cotton Rabbits pattern. I have followed Julie’s blog for several years now wishing I could knit cute little rabbits and animals like hers. It was a happy day for me this summer when she released a pattern for a boy and girl bunny and some extra bunny dresses. I love starting with balls of yarn in beautiful colors and creating something with a cute face and clothes. Julie’s patterns are well written with lots of photos and detailed instructions. They do require some knitting experience so if you don’t know how to knit take a few lessons. I think they would make cute gifts, but right now I’m too attached to my little knit bunnies and  I don’t think I can give them away!

 A late summer bouquet of asters, green envy zinnia, dahlias, zinnias and laurel leaves.

 I love the green envy zinnia combined with the purple aster in my garden this year. It was the inspiration for this sweet bunny’s dress, tights and shoes. I use Plymouth Encore Yarn in DK weight to knit my bunnies.

One bunny is cute, but two together are twice as fun. Don’t you love her Mary Jane shoes?

I also enjoy knitting little mice from Alan Dart’s Knitting Patterns. He has a wide variety of toys you can knit. His patterns are available to download on his website.

  3. How adorable! The bunnies look so cute among the zinnias and I absolutely adore the group of mice! You have done an awesome job! Have a great weekend! Hugs, Poppy

  4. Oh, aren’t you clever? You must have had fun making them. I’m not a knitter but my mum is, so I’ll search for the patterns and ask her if she would knit a couple for me. Thanks for sharing.

  5. Those are adorable! I can knit a straight line. Basically all I’ve made are a lot of simple scarves. I think I need to branch out one of these days. Seeing your adorable animals gives me inspiration. Thank you!

  6. Oh my gosh they are darling and colorful! Our sister Shawna knits adorable little animals too and she always seems to save one for me (sharon) but not for (denise) and I wonder WHY? hee hee

    Just wanted to thank you for linking up to the BeBetsy Brag About It party and for adding our link to your page. You are such a dear.

    See you next week,
