$80 – 4 Sessions plus materials

Many of you have seen the little rabbits that I knit before they were gifted to my grandkids! Last winter we held a class for the little girl lamb and the little boy ram from the popular series of little animals from Julie Williams of Little Cotton Rabbits. We also discovered that 3 classes was not enough so we have added a 4th session. This time by popular request, we will do the rabbits which I find are my favourite! You can choose to do either the boy bunny or the girl. The pattern is for knitting flat and the pieces are seamed afterwards. The pattern calls for worsted/aran weight yarn, however I like using a DK weight yarn. In this class, you will learn how to knit increases and decreases to shape the bodies and their clothing, and how to assemble them using neat finishing techniques with a tapestry needle.

Skills Required: knit, purl, M1, ssk, k2tog (you should be an advanced beginner or intermediate knitter to be comfortable in this class).

Materials Required: Kits are available for $30 HERE.

For the girl bunny:

  • 4ply weight yarn in 3 contrasting colours for the clothing: Yarn B, Yarn C, Yarn D
  • Scraps of black and grey yarn, DK or 4ply for the eyes and facial features

For the boy bunny:

  • 4ply weight yarn in 3 contrasting colours for the clothing: Yarn C, Yarn D, Yarn E
  • 4ply weight yarn in dark colour for shorts: Yarn E
  • Scraps of black 4ply/DK yarn for the eyes and nose

Notions (Not included in the kits):

  • Knitting needles: A pair each of 3mm and 2.75mm
  • Tapestry needle

Note:  I used the same weight of yarn for everything and only 2.75 mm needles. I also recommend the boy bunny pattern since it includes all of the "faces" while the girl bunny has the single colour face only. The girl clothes can be purchased separately.

Saturdays, October 20, 27, November 3, and 10th – 10:00 am to 12:00 pm
