Child's Bunny Motif Pullover

Lion Brand® Wool-Ease® Thick & Quick®


10 sts + 14 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in Stockinette st (k on RS, p on WS) with larger needles.

When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Making a Gauge Swatch


Chart is worked in intarsia, using a separate ball of yarn for each color. Twist yarns on WS to prevent holes.

With larger needles and A, cast on 34 (38, 40, 42) sts. Work in St st (k on RS, p on WS) until piece measures 14 (15, 17, 18) in. (35.5 (38, 43, 45.5) cm) from beg, end with a WS row. Bind off.

Child's Bunny Motif Pullover Reviewed by Adrienne Schneider on 2008-07-06 ***
The sweater is adorable and easy to make, but the "bunny motif" leaves alot to be desired.

Somehow it looks like a rat and not a bunny.
