Colorful Crafting with Jen: Bunny Hop Bunnies from Knitting at KNoon

When I saw these adorable bunnies from Knitting at KNoon's Bunny Hop Pattern in January I knew I would be soon be making them for Easter on The Purl Bee.  Like the Knitting at KNoon SnoBuddy family I made 2 winters ago, I think these bunnies are among the cutest knit toys I've ever seen! 

The bunnies have lots of parts: bodies, ears, arms, feet and charming accessories, but still I managed to make the four of them pictured here over just three evenings after my daughter's bedtime.  

Like the snowmen, it was the accessories for each bunny that made them come to life.  I especially loved knitting the sweet tiny carrot that the little boy bunny is holding.

If you'd like to make your own Bunny Hop Family to look like mine, here is what you'll need:

Colorful Crafting with Jen: SnoBuddy Family from Knitting at KNoon

These snowmen may be the cutest project I've ever completed. The pattern is from the creative minds at Knitting at KNoon, and is called The SnoBuddy Family

The snowmen were super quick and easy to make, and it was so fun to make their little tiny accessories. The tiny scarves for the mom and dad were done in no time and made my Snobuddy family come to life! 

I think my favorite accessory to make was the little boy snowman's gloves.  I'm not sure what made this particular part was so gratifying, but it may have something to do with the finished product, could it be any cuter?

To make my entire SnoBuddy family I used just one skein of Blue Sky Alpaca's Suri Merino, a super soft, slightly fuzzy yarn that reminded me of a freshly fallen snow (but any soft white worsted or aran weight yarn will work for the pattern). For needles I used Crystal Palace double pointed US size 6 bamboo needles. For their accessories, I went into my stash and found some scraps in the same gauge as the Suri Merino to ensure that the hats, scarfs and gloves would fit.

You can find the SnoBuddy Family pattern from KNitting at Knoon right here!

I hope you'll enjoy making these snowmen as much as I did! --Jen
