Flat Knit Bunny Knitting Pattern

Knit bunnies can be a fun and creative project for those who enjoy knitting, and they also make a great gift for children or adults who love stuffed animals.

This knit bunny is created by knitting a series of panels (body, arms, legs and ears), then sewing them together and stuffing them with polyfill.
