Finished Knitting - Tiny Tin Bunny



Remember my last chevron blanket?  The baby it now belongs to has an older sister, which was who my next knit was aimed at.  I found this fun project on Ravelry and decided to make my own version.  Instead of a Pocket Ted I have a Pocket Bunny!  I got the tin with travel sweets in Lidl, then set about making a 'bed' to fit inside.  My method just involved enlarging the Beekeeper hexies from 20 stitches to 32 at the start, and knitting/increasing until it seemed big enough...  I made the tiny pillow using the same method, without the increases.  (I think it was 16 stitches I cast on.)  The blanket was simple garter stitch - again I just cast on until it seemed wide enough, around 28 stitches.  The bunny pattern came from Little Cotton Rabbits.  There's a bunch of fun tiny knits over there - teddies in dresses!  It was a bit fiddly at times but quite satisfying when it all came together.  I even gave the bunny a tiny pompom tail...

  4. This is absolutely amazing - I would have LOVED something like this as a little girl! ... (Who am I kidding? I would love it now!) The little tin is so cute too, doesn't look modern at all, I need to get to Lidl! xx

    1. It would make a pretty fun desk buddy I think ;) Lidl is fab for sweets, I think these are only £1 or something.

    1. Thanks, it's a little messy close up but I wanted to stitch it together tight to deal with the small hands playing with it! :)
