Loom knit Bunnie

Posted on: March 30, 2013

Hi all, hope everyone had a great week!!! The sun was actually shining today and it was almost warm about 50 degrees!!! Hopefully it won’t get really cold again. Last night laying in bed I was thinking about the little crochet bunny from the Green Dragonfly that I made earlier in the week.
I still need to make one more! So suddenly i had this thought that I could loom knit one! Wouldn’t that be cool. This afternoon I gave it a try using that pattern as a guide I made one! Ta Dah here it is!

I think it turned out rather cute! It was also easy and pretty quick. So how did I do it? Like this:
Loom: kiss 24 peg modular set up to knit in the round on the smallest setting.
8 peg kiss spool loom (used for the white muzzle)
Yarn: small amounts of Red Heart Super Saver yarn in 4 colors.
Small amount of polyester fiberfill
2 black 1/4 inch buttons
Black embroidery floss
Small elastic bands or painters tape to mark your loom
Loom tool, yarn needle, scissors needle thin enough to sew on the buttons
Dinner fork ( to make the pompom )
Pattern for the crochet bunny found here( for the pictures to see how it is put together)
You can find it here:

Pattern for the Granny Round from Good Knit Kisses which is here:
http://goodknitkisses.com/GoodKnit_Kisses/FREE_Pattern_Blog/Entries/2011/6/10_Granny_Round_-_Loom_Knit.html

Front and back ( make 2 )
Mark your loom on pegs 1,7,13, and 19

Step 1. Cast on to 24 pegs using the double ewrap cast on
Purl across first 6 pegs, turn and knit back to peg 1
Round 1 Wrap and knit off all 24 pegs
Round 2 wrap and purl all 24 pegs
Change color and begin following The Granny Round Pattern, you will start following it from Round 2 and you will continue following it too the end, changing color after 2 rounds, than again after 2 more rounds. After it is off the loom tie together your color changes, weave in ends and trim. Make another one. These are your front and back.
Ears ( make 2 )
Using the adjustable cast on, cast on to 6 pegs using the yarn color you used for the first 2 rows of the front and back.
Adjustable cast on is here: http://loomlady.blogspot.com/ it is in the side bar under loom knitting techniques.
You will be knitting a flat panel
Row 1 knit across
Row 2 increase 1 stitch knit across increase one stitch
Repeat these 2 rows until you have 13 stitches changing colors for stripes as desired.
Knit 3 rows even
Begin decreases
Decrease 1 stitch at each end of the panel until you have 6 stitches left on the loom, bind off using the gathered bind off after it is off the loom pull up tight and tie off using the yarn tail sew up seam matching the stripes. Flatten piece with seam centered in the back. Pull up cast on edge to about 1/2 inch tie off. Set aside and make another one.
Muzzle
Using white yarn and the spool loom cast on using the drawstring cast on found here http://loomlady.blogspot.com/ it is in the side bar under loom knitting techniques. Flat knit for 5 rounds bind off using the super stretchy bind off. Leave long tail for sewing. Embroider nose and mouth.
Pompom
Using white yarn make pompom as directed in the crochet pattern ( I only wrapped the yarn 30 times.)

Putting it all together
Following the crochet pattern sew it all together and you have a cute little bunny.
Here are my 2 together
