WIP: Bunny legs!

Last night I settled down to see if I could make some more progress on my girl bunny.  As you can see, she now has two little legs!

I knitted the legs  and shoes with Natura Just Cotton 4ply which, while has a lovely slinky feel, is quite hard to work with as it splits as it is made of 8 strands of combed cotton. I would think it is better suited for crochet.

I also found it quite unforgiving when it came to sewing up  and my seaming is not as neat as I would like.

The legs are probably the most tricky and fiddly part of this bunny and I might be tempted to swop the feet with those of the boy bunny pattern  if I were to make this bunny again.

There is also a cute shoe supplement  which has a pair of bunny slipper or trainers which you could use instead.

  1. Awww, what a cute pair of little legs. I remember knitting a little penguin for a christmas present a few years ago and it was such a fiddly little thing to construct! Worth it though 🙂
