Rabbit-Free Pattern!


Hi Spud & Chloë Friends,

I am excited to be offering another free downloadable pdf pattern for you today. I had asked a couple of posts ago for name ideas for Ribbit‘s new friend. I received many fantastic responses and I want to thank you for the enthusiasm. Several people thought the obvious and best name for the bunny would simply be, Rabbit. I love this idea for a couple of reasons. Rabbit is similar in construction to Ribbit in that there is a tennis ball inside the body again for a little bounce and form so changing the one letter for the new name seems appropriate. I also like the simplicity of the name Rabbit. Perfect!

Here are a few things you will need:

US size 5 dpns (a set of 4 needles)

1 skein of Spud & Chloë Sweater in Ice Cream #7500

One tennis ball and a small amount of fiber-fill OR fiber-fill only

Other notions like a yarn needle, scissors, ruler, black embroidery floss, a stitch marker and a stitch holder or waste yarn

Have fun, Knitters! I am excited to some Rabbits hopping around soon.

    Oh, he’s so cute! I can’t wait to knit it for my daughter.

    The link to the download isn’t working for me? It doesn’t load as a link…just underlined text.

    Thank you so much for the WONDERFUL pattern for Rabbit. I am in the mood to spend the next month working on my toy patterns. Ribbit and Rabbit are in the bag and ready to go. I need to get to my favorite yarn shop and see if they have Spud and Chloe yarn. I have been BEGGING for them to carry your patterns and yarn. I MUST get the Hoot Owl hat pattern. I have a grandson due in November. It would be perfect. I have 4 granddaughters, ages 1-6, who I watch daily. Your line of patterns are wonderful for all ages.

    I know this is a very late comment, but I want to point out that Rabbit as a name also refers back to “Winnie the Pooh”, for those who remember their childhood books — as I do!
