Updated patterns!

I'm in the process of updating my old patterns, particularly the bibs, to include charts. I'm rewriting some of the directions to make the patterns even easier and including alternative methods for beginning the bibs and for making the ties. Look for these patterns in the sidebar to see which ones have been added. It's a slow process, but eventually, they'll all be there!

A Tail of Two Bunnies

Every year I always try and post a brand new pattern on the anniversary of my blog.  That was my intention this year also, except that I completely missed the date!  I thought it was the last day of April but it turns out that it was April 1st instead.  Well, so much for that idea!  To make up for my poor memory, I decided to post two patterns for you!

This is "A Tail of Two Bunnies".  When I was designing Ruthie's blanket, I wanted to add a bunny to the mix.  At first, I designed the bunny with the tail and was pretty happy with it, until I realized that almost all of the other designs in the blanket were head shots. The bunny with a tail stuck out (to me anyway) and so I went back to the drawing board and drew just the bunny's head.

I couldn't decide which one to post, so I just decided to do both and, since this is basically the same bunny, I combined the two into one pattern.

I want to thank my good friend, Denise, for helping me out.  She did a knitting marathon of both designs so I could post these as quickly as I have.  With her permission, here are her bunnies:

Didn't she do a fabulous job?  Then again, she always does a fabulous job, both with the knitting and with catching my typos!  I'm so lucky to have her helping me out!

You can get the pdf file by clicking the links in the side bar, or by clicking here for the bib patterns or by clicking here for the cloth patterns.

I wish I knew how to post a poll, so I could see which design is your favorite. You'll have to leave me a comment with your pick!

Finally, you might be interested to know that my original post was April 1, 2008.  Four years ago!  It just doesn't seem possible.  I'm so grateful to all of my followers and to all of you kind enough to leave me your comments.

you should do a survey on survey monkey or somthing. Personally I'm going to do the one with a tail. I'm still working on the hippo. That is one of my favorite patterns by the way.

I love both but I had to do the one with the tail first. Thanks for sharing all of your patterns I've done 3 of them already if you want to see pictures they are on my blog here http://adrialyshc.blogspot.com/2012/05/finished-baby-bib.html

This is the best site for dishcloth patterns. I use them to make blankets for donation. Thank you, thank you. Love all of them.

I knit left handed so most patterns for a picture facing right has to be done in reverse. Do you know if this is the way the bunny head should be knitted. I'm knitting a bunny baby blanket for my great granddaughter. Thank You.
