Meet Dottie, my bunny.  Don’t you think she’s just pinch-those-cheeks cute!

Yeah, once I knitted that dress, I knew her name had to be Dottie.

Stripey tights and shoes with little french knots “snaps” that go on the side  Love!

So, there is a bit of finishing involved.  This bunny is knit in pieces and stuffed and seamed and joined together in increments. However, this means that you can really shape the bunny’s face and tummy to look quite bunny-like.  The designer, Julie, has written an exceptional pattern with such meticulous detail.  She really shows how you can make your bunny unique.  There is also a boy bunny version sold as a separate pattern and he’s just as cute.

The dress for my bunny is knit in one of my all time favorite combos :: aqua and red.  This is my first time doing colorwork flat.  Next time I do any sort of multiple color knitting, it shall be done in the round… I didn’t enjoy purling those colorwork rows.  Dottie was knit entirely from leftovers and she will keep me perfect company while I craft ♥

    If I didn’t have a dozen WIPs I would start this right now.
    She is so pretty, but I think she needs at least a couple of friends, maybe a two colour stripey one and a mad multi colour stripey one, so they can have a proper afternoon tea or enjoy lemondae out in the patio.

    Just sayin’
