On Ravelry

After my Clarke I didn't quite know what to knit next. The yarn for two new projects was on its way and at the same time I felt like there was nothing left to knit.

So I dove into my stack to see what I could use up and then I think I saw a picture of a knit toy dog (on Knitted Bliss' Blog) which inspired me to do another little animal. I actually love knitting these little critters by Barbara Prime, they grow so quickly and are a lot of fun to knit. I already did a few Mini Pookies,a Zebra and my first Well-Dressed Bunny.

I chose the Well-Dressed Bunny again but this time I wanted to knit a boy (well you can only tell because of his clothes, everything else it totally gender neutral). I used up all of the grey yarn first and then I had to improvise. I think the brighter yarn looks almost like a diaper which wasn't my plan but it's funny nevertheless.

Once all the pieces for the bunny were done I realised that I didn't have eyes that were big enough. To gap the time of their arrival I knit a few clothes for my little bunny boy, at first a hoodie, then a little jacket and in the end I decided that he really needed a pair of overalls as well. I modified the patterns a little bit and knit more in the round because I don't like sewing all that much and I think they turned out fine like that as well.

Now I only need a little person who'd like to love it ;-)


  1. Oh my goodness, the bunny is adorable and sweet! I love the photo of him/her in pieces :)

    1. I guess it's a boy but the pieces were in the time before it was decided ;-)

  2. This is so so so adorable! What a great idea for leftover yarn. His clothes is ridiculously cute!

    1. I am quite in live with these mini clothes so there might be more to come.

  3. That is one adorable bunny!
