Thanks Happy Bunny, Bawk Bawk!

Herro!
Happy Bunny 1
My name is Happy Bunny! Whheeeeee! (What, I said I was happy.) I'm a shorter-nosed, longer-eared version of Otto the Polar Bear. weez fashioned me out of something called Wool-Ease, which makes great toys 'cause it's easy to take care of. I'll bet that first spin around the washing machine is going to be so. much. fun!


I'm not just cute, though. I'm really snuggly! Plus, when I get excited, my ears fly up!

I'm a good listener, too.

Even though some things confuse me, being new to the world and all.

So, like, what are you about?


I'm going to fly out to K's house this weekend, where her super adorable kids can squeeze me and hug me and call me George. I can't wait! It's good to be a Happy Bunny! Wheeee!

Pattern:
Otto by Ysolda Teague

Yarn:
Wool-Ease, 1 skein in Fisherman

Needle:
HiyaHiya Interchangeables, Size 4

Mods:
Decreased the face faster to do away with the snout; only one set of increases on the arms to make them less bulbous; picked up more stitches for the ears, increased gradually, then decreased rapidly to make them bunny-like.

So cute!!! And little pangs of guilt on my end that I haven't knit either Lil' Guy or Lil' Snowboarder a toy :(

Happy Bunny looks really really happy. Are you sure you didn't stuff him with "magic" stuffing?

Anyway, I want to squeeze his tummy.
