How many sales can we hit at once? Three, apparently! Right now, until 11/27 @ 11:59PM (PST), all of my patterns on Ravelry are 30% off – no coupon code needed! If you’ve had your eye on any, now is the time to catch ’em!
Geraldine very generously offered this pattern for free right in time for Easter crafting, and she translated it into English from her native French. The pattern is a spin on another free bunny pattern that’s floating around, but a few simple details make this one shine.
What’s to love? It’s all worked in garter – knit knit knit! It’s also very beginner friendly, and you can change up the yarns used to make it a stash-buster endeavor, as well.
I’ve been making up a whole army of them as gifts for my nieces & nephews this year. As you can see in my photos, they’re great little treat bags for the kiddos.
One change I made was giving them fluffy little ball tails instead of pom poms. My youngest nephew is 1 (happy birthday today, kiddo!) so I wanted to make them friendly to him and pom poms aren’t great for chewing on. I used Pipsqueak yarn for the tails and crocheted them – which at first that yarn was a little over-hyped for me, but now that I’ve used it on my… six bunnies… and counting, I think I’m sold. It works great for them.
These bunnies work up for me in a bit over an hour after I really got good at them, and they’re just so darn cute. You can see more details on my project page on Ravelry, if you’d like.
Don’t knit? I’m accepting orders for these little fellas in my Etsy shop until the 9th! Use coupon code “TWOBUNNIES” to get a discount when you order 2!
So, are you going to make some bunnies?! Well, hop to it!

Just trying to figure out this whole blogging thing, and honestly it’s a little overwhelming. I really want this to be a space to share about my current projects, my designs, free patterns to share, and interesting stitches or ideas related to crochet and knitting.
To that point, I’ll leave this first post with a blurb about a pattern I just published today, which is up for free for a limited time!
The Water Lily Mandala Square is a quick and easy project for a 6″ square. It uses up to 4 colours, though testers used 2-3 with great success. It’s an abbreviated written pattern, with two pages of photos at the end of the PDF to help outline tricky steps! It’s free with the code “autumn” until the end of September!
