Spool-Knit Rabbit Hot Pad

Lion Brand® Lion® Cotton

GAUGE:

Exact gauge is not essential to this project.

NOTES:

Yarn is used doubled throughout (2 strands). When changing from one color to another when spool knitting, simply cut the first color and tie on the second one. When you are knitting, be sure to position the knot so it is positioned facing the inside of the spool -- it will be invisible on the outside! For instructions on how to make a spool knitter, click .

HOT PAD

Make
1 strand of knitting using two strands of(A) 19 inches [48 cm] (back foot)
1 strand of knitting, with 3 inches [7.5 cm] made with 2 strands of(B) and 21 inches [53.5 cm] made using two strands of (A) (24 inches [61 cm] total) (head)
1 strand of knitting with 3 inches [7.5 cm] made using two strands of (B) and 15 inches [38 cm] made using two strands of (A) (18 inches [46 cm] total) (Ear and Front Foot)
1 strand of knitting made using 2 strands of (A), 36 inches [91 cm] (body).


ASSEMBLY

Back Foot
Thread the large-eyed blunt needle with white cotton. Roll the strand and stitch it so it is round. Stop when there is approximately one inch [2.5 cm] of the knitted strand left. Tie off your sewing.

Body
Thread the large-eyed blunt needle with (A). Roll the stand counter clockwise to make a coil about an inch [2.5 cm across] Sew this, tie off the yarn that you are sewing with. This will be the tail. Hold the back foot with the foot portion on the bottom. Position the rolled tail of the body piece in the 3 o'clock position on the back foot and sew until you reach 12 o'clock. Coil the rest of the strand counter clockwise and position it so that it forms the body of the bunny on the left side of the foot. Stitch in place, tie yarn off securely, trim

Head
Thread the large-eyed blunt needle with (A). Fold the rose portion over and fold the white portion around it to create the ear (the rose part is the inside of the ear). Stitch to hold in place. Tie yarn off securely, trim. Roll the balance into an oval and stitch in place, stopping when you reach the base of the ear. Tie yarn off securely, trim.

Ear and front Foot assembly.
Thread the large-eyed blunt needle with (A). Fold the rose portion over and fold the white portion around it to create the ear (the rose part is the inside of the ear). Stitch to hold in place. Tie yarn off securely, trim. Place the front foot portion so it is at the bottom of the bunny and at the same level as the back foot. Stitch the assembly into place along the front portion of the body.
Head
Position the head so that the ear fits together with the ear that is already mounted on the bunny. Thread the large-eyed blunt needle with (A), sew into place. Tie off yarn securely, trim.
Eyes and Mouth
Thread the large-eyed blunt needle with (C). Tie a large knot in it, position as the eye and, sewing from the right side to the wrong side, pull it through and tie off in back. Repeat for a second eye.

Using (B) embroider a nose and mouth on the bunny.

Spool-Knit Rabbit Hot Pad Reviewed by Ruthie Nicholas on 2010-04-02 *****
We are thrilled to find such an easy pattern. My daughters were thrilled with the knitting Nancy's grandfather made; but unsure what to make with them. One inparticular LOVES white bunnies. She's knitting like crazy to finish this hot pad! My oldest has also found a spool-knit pattern she's interested in trying. THANK YOU, Lion Brand for the many wonderful patterns you provide!
