Happy Bunny is here! I’ve wanted to make a larger lop-eared bunny for the longest time. I love this chunky-style toy made with our bulky-weight yarn. The Happy Bunny is worked seamlessly and cleverly, starting with the head and working on down. The knitting goes pretty quickly with the larger needles and heavier-weight yarn and the finished bunny is a really snuggly character in the end. Happy Bunny is the perfect companion for Waffles Puppy if interested!
I hope you love this toy-knitting experience as much as I did.
