How to Knit a BUNNY from a SQUARE: Easy for Beginning Knitters

A Knitted Bunny from a Square! Hi, Guys I’m Kristen and Welcome to Studio
Knit. Today, we are going to celebrate Spring time
and Easter with this adorable little bunny, easily shaped from a square knit in the garter
stitch. I love knitting up this really cute little
bunny. So simple. The materials we will use are:
Aran or Worsted Weighted Yarn in two colors. Your Color Choice is TOTALLY OPTIONAL.
2 Size 7 US Knitting Needles. Scissors, a Tapestry Needle, and Stuffing. To begin, we will cast on any number of stitches
you chose! I am casting on 30 stitches. Knit in Garter Stitch until your piece is
a perfect square. The Garter Stitch is simply knitting the Knit Stitch every single row.
Check out my tutorial on the Garter Stitch if you would like to learn more. The easiest way to determine when you have
knitted an equally sided square is to match up your corners, like so. Then, it’s time to bind off. Now, we will loosely stitch a triangle shape
using yarn and our tapestry needle. First, we will stitch all the way across our piece
in the middle. Then, form a triangle. With both of our yarn ends on the side of our piece,
place a ball of stuffing, then cinch up your piece. Your bunny’s heads and ears are immediately
formed! Too cool! Oh, and If you think this is a really clever
way to knit a bunny, please click LIKE and leave a COMMENT BELOW letting me know that
you would like to see more quick knit projects like this! Then, we just stitch up the back. Give your bunny extra personality by embroidering
a face in any colors and features you chose. I am adding eyes, a nose, and whiskers. Finish you bunny with a little pom pom for
its tail. I like winding yarn around a fork to make mini pom poms. So cute! I hope you are inspired to knit your
own little Easter Bunnies from the garter knitted square, too! Thank you so much for watching Studio Knit.
