Pattern: Spring Bunnies

Spring has arrived! Its been 3 years since I designed the Spring Bunnies
and I know that this pattern has been dearly loved and used many times
all over the world since then. If you never jumped on the bunny
bandwagon, nows your chance to join in on the fun and make your own

Spring Bunny as the weather warms up and Easter approaches! This


pattern originally appeared on Craftzine HERE and it is my pleasure
bringing it to you on my blog for the very first time!

lightweight yarn (3) for the flower]
