I’ve even included a pattern for a basic knit garter stitch square in this tutorial to get you started. This creative craft is a great way to turn your gauge swatches into something fun.

- Read through all instructions before beginning.
Co 23 (35, 46)
Row 1: K all.
Repeat Row 1 until piece is square.
Bind off then weave in all ends.
- Fold square in half both ways and mark the center on 3 sides.
- With a 24” piece of yarn, sew a running stitch from center of one side to center of side across, to center of side above, and back to original point.
- Slowly start to pull ends of yarn to gather triangle just stitched.
- Fill gathered section with Poly Fil to make head.
- Pull yarn ends tight and tie in knot to hole head and ears in place
- If you want to adjust the fold in the ears, do so and sew through the bottoms of the ears a few times to hold them as you want them.
- Sew the back seam shut so there is just a round opening at the end.
- Sew a running stitch around the opening.
- Fill body half way with stuffing.
- Finish filling with Poly Pellets so the Bunny will stay how you sit it.
- Pull the end of the yarn to close the running stitch around the end.
- Stitch the gathered section so it doesn’t come undone.
- Weave in all ends.
- Add a pom pom for a tail.
- Stitch on a face if you’d like.
