Respectable Mr Rabbit

Yes, he's a little nonchalant - but don't those shiny red trousers add a touch of class?

Unable to stop with Mr Fox, Mr Rabbit wasn't far behind!  Especially after seeing all these beautiful foxes created - have a peek below for some awesome projects from ravelry!   

I do love knitting these guys, and they fit in my little knitting bag for the train :)

So!  I'm sure you want to know more about this smooshy:

Mr. Rabbit is a respectable little man (with respectable little trousers). Standing at approximately 15” tall, he is knitted mainly in the round, with the head pieces knitted flat. He is knitted in pieces and then seamed together.
Needles: 3.25mm (UK) DPNs or circulars using the magic circle technique.
Rowan Fine Tweed
Beige: 150m - colourway arncliffe (360)
Red (or other trouser): 45m - colourway bainbridge (369)
White : 30m - colourway bell husk (376)
Additional materials:
buttons/toy eyes
buttons for nose
Note: if you choose, you can knit Mr. Rabbit in any size of yarn, adjusting your needles as appropriate. Obviously he may end up rather taller or shorter than the fingering weight version depending on the size you use :)

Oh, and I met a really sweet little squirrel.  Looky!  Nosey little oat-craker eating man.   I do love to sit and feed the little guys, they're greedy though!!

Where's your favourite place to sit and read for a while?
