Henry's Rabbit Knitting Pattern

Henry's Rabbit by Sara Elizabeth Kellner, free knitting pattern download

It seems that many knitters around the internet have found this most delightful hand-knitting pattern designed by Sara Elizabeth Kellner, and it's no wonder...what an adorable fellow he is! This sweet rabbit made us think of Easter, but would be perfect for any time of the year since it's so darn cute. Henry’s Rabbit is a simple pattern that knits up fast and is a joy to make and give. All pieces are knitted in the round, so there is very little seaming. Finishing touches (eyes, nose, and whiskers) can be embroidered on, or embellished with buttons, pieces of felt, etc.

Finished size is about 12 inches long, and 6 inches high at tallest point. Sara knits loosely, so if you’re a tight knitter and want your rabbit to be the same size as hers, consider going up a needle size.

Let's Go!
