You may remember that I have been teasing you over the past months with pictures of a knitted bunny that I have been designing. Well, my design is finished and I have published the pattern. ERIN’s BUNNY is a free download on http://www.ravelry.com.
Designing this bunny and creating a written pattern was quite the challenge. I will spare you the details of sleepless nights, numerous frogging, pattern rewrites and frustrations. Instead, I would like to brag.
There are many ways to make the bunny unique. You can add frills, flowers, bows and tie the ears up for a girl. You can keep it simple for a boy. Charms can be added around the neck to personalize it. You can use different weight yarns, including sock yarn for a mini size and attach a swivel hook so it can be used as a zipper pull for backpack, purse.
I am proud of this cuddly bunny. I devoted months to designing and writing. I have sold several to friends and have orders for the holidays.
I named the pattern for my daughter, Erin, and designed it around memories of her childhood.
Erin lives in a group home in Laramie, WY. She has several special needs. However, she is full of smiles, has a greyt sense of humor, and is always ready to give you her special bone-crushing hug. Erin has always been fascinated with things that are floppy and will spend hours shaking it. Thus, ERIN’s BUNNY is very floppy.
Next item on my list of to do’s, . . . a floppy panda bear that will be named ERIN’s PANDA. The pattern should be available around the first of the new year.
