Cute Little Cotton Rabbits Patterns

SONY DSCWe are always finding fun things to knit around here. I’ve been drooling over Julie’s Little Cotton Rabbits for several years. In fact, I was lucky enough to buy a few when they were still pretty easy to get. But now, she puts up a dozen completed bunnies every couple of months and the demand for them is overwhelming. I was thrilled when she decided to write up her patterns and offer them for sale! I haven’t started one yet, but as soon as Camp is over, it’s on my list.

Last week, Loopy Office Manager Lynn decided to try her hand at her own little bunny. She used Julie’s SONY DSCpatterns for the girl bunny (also available in a boy bunny) and the dress, and then used our Loopy Cakes “Colors of Loopy” set for the dress, tights and shoes.  She’s already talking about making a few changes of clothes, because how can you pick just one of those adorable dresses to make? (There was a little mishap during the photography session, and the bunny decided to jump down from the winder. Ooops! But it does give you a good look at the cute striped tights.)

Do you like knitting toys? And does this sweet little bunny tempt you like it tempts me?

Sheri hopingyou’reinforagreatweekend!


  1. This bunny does tempt me to make one up for my niece-to-be. So cute! I have to wait until after Camp Loopy to start one just like you, Sheri. Too many pots on the burners.

  2. Cute bunny, I’m going to have to get the pattern to knit after Camp Loopy ends. This weekend, I’ll be playing nurse to my wonderful hubby. He managed to trip and fall today, scraping his arm up pretty good and likely cracking a rib. Thank heavens I recently retired, I may have to go with him on his service calls for a few weeks to carry the equipment and crawl and bend where he can’t. Who knows, maybe I’ll find myself a new career!

    Stay cool, everyone…it’s hot, hot, hot here in eastern PA.

  3. Why did you have to show that adorable bunny just days before my granddaughter arrives? The pattern is printing now, though it will maybe be after Camp Loopy before I start working on it.

  4. Ooooh! My first granddaughter is due in mid August and I think I may need to knit one up for her. Her big brothers probably need bunnies, too, just because.

  5. Knitting toys has never been for me, but I have always admired these specific bunnies and am contemplating making some…they are SO cute!

  6. I made my first toy ans was not very happy. The mother- to -be loved it, but I need a good resource with how to sew the parts together. Any suggestions?

  7. How sweet — thank you for sharing the bunbuns. I wish I had time to make one for a friend who just had a baby. Even better, I shall have to make sure she gets a little kit for one! She’ll love it even more if she’s made it!

    Alas, I do love a good toy pattern, but find they are quite labour-intensive. I sometimes think I could have socks by the time I’ve finished one. Then again, who can resist the smiles when a child receives such a gift?

    I agree with the above: Loopy will have a new pal indeed!

  8. Julie’s animals are so cute! Thanks for the headsup – I may need to make one of these little guys.

  9. Which means knitting a stuffers animal IS NOT project 3 for camp! (What investigative skills, right?)

  10. I just received an order from you which included one of the kits for the teeny tiny frogs. My husband and I are into geocaching. I thought it would be fun to make these things to leave as trinkets in caches. The Loopy Cakes would be handy for making more of the tiny things if I could get the right color combinations!
