Then he got a little braver.
Or perhaps his curiosity just got the better of him.
Fortunately Salvbard was up to doing another photo-shoot, like the one that he did for the amigurumi penguin. And before you knew it, the bunny was ready to strike a pose.
Yarn: some random aran-weight coned rug wool from my stash
Needles: US 6s/4.0 mm
I was somewhat randomly inspired to make a rabbit yesterday. I was looking for something rabbit-themed in honor of the somewhat belated Chinese New Year, and stumbled upon this pattern. The funny thing, was that I had just been listening to back episodes of the Double Knit Podcast, which had mentioned this pattern as well.
The thing that amused me most about this pattern, is that there is an option to make the body with a tennis ball inside. I had read in a few comments on Ravelry that they still don't bounce terribly well, but I still felt like this would make the world's best dog toy. (Don't get me wrong, it would also be really cute as a baby shower gift, but fur-babies need love too.)
