 Ok, here’s a fact:

  • I, Claire Garland, live in a fantasy world which is whenever I knit something I believe that it comes to life at night and romps around the house!…

So that’s why I’m trying to create animals as close to the ‘real thing’ as I possibly can - it’s my challenge…

I’ve used My little wild rabbit of the forest in (almost) one piece joining as you go - the legs and hind feet you sew on after.

I’ve knitted him using fine Alpaca, wool and Alpaca mix yarns PLUS a touch of kidsilk from my fave - Drops yarn - and doubled up using sometimes three colours at once to create ‘wild rabbit’ subtle tones

You’ll also need a pair of 18 mm toy eyes and toy filling - a heavy kapok works best I find….

AND - there are also many images illustrating how to make up your bunny and how to make it look as real as can be (given it’s made from yarn and not fur!)
