Toy rabbits are always popular, and have been for many years, so it seemed only natural to create a knitting book especially for all the rabbit lovers out there. With their long ears and cute, fluffy tails, they are loved by children and adults alike. This book contains a wide variety of rabbits to knit - from fun and quirky, to cute and cuddly - and you don't have to clean up after them! Each rabbit has its own look and personality, and they come in a range of characters, styles, shapes and sizes to suit knitters of all tastes and abilities. There are twenty patterns to choose from, and each one comes with a comprehensive list of the yarns, needles and embellishments you need, and there are general notes too on basic techniques, materials and equipment. Filled with fun from cover to cover, you will love these adorable knitted rabbits - and so will anyone you choose to knit them for!
