Chester the Bashful Bunny

Whilst browsing through Ravelry recently I stumbled across Rebecca Danger's ever so cute patterns and just had to follow the link to her Etsy store - Danger Crafts and purchase the pattern for Chester the Bashful Bunny.

I was a little concerned at first as many of the patterns use the Magic Loop method of knitting in the round which I have never used before. However, after a quick lesson from Deborah at the monthly knitting group at Twist on Saturday I bought a 100cm long Knit Pro cable and a set of 4mm ends, cast on and off I went. Ok - I've only knitted 2 legs so far but I am looking forward to finishing him - although I am not sure he'll look as cute as the original - and perhaps adding a Hermann Bear to the family too!

Now you got me curious... I have never heard of the magic loop to knit in the round... I need to investigate further.

I am absolutely sure that your bunny will look at LEAST as pretty as these ones if not more :-)
