I’ve been keeping this giant knit bunny under wraps since last spring. Hard to do! I have been so eager to share it with you! Who doesn’t want to gallop away on a giant knit bunny? Am I right?
I’m so thrilled to have this arm knitting project shared on the pages of Sweet Paul Magazine this spring. It has been a goal of mine for a long time to be included there as I think Paul has an amazing and cutting edge creative eye! He is very talented and I am honored to be a contributor. Of course, the pages are filled with lots of stunning creative eye candy and gorgeous photographs, so go get yourself the latest copy.
If you’ve fallen in love with this arm knit giant knit bunny, which I’m sure you have, I have you covered if you want to make one for yourself! You can access the pattern for free on Sweet Paul. But if you’d support me by buying a pattern, I’d be ever so grateful!

The photo shoot took place last March at the gorgeous home of Merrilee Liddiard. I took all the photos for the spread, and Brittany Jepsen from House that Lars Built styled the shoot (she also styled about 1/2 of my book, Knitting Without Needles) and made the fabulous giant carrot easter basket above of course!
Merrillee’s daughter was the star of the show and was just about the best darn model you ever did see. I will tell you that I was forced to leave the bunnies there as payment for location (not really), but after seeing M play with the giant knit bunny, how could I not??
I hope you love this whimsical large idea of mine! The kiddos in your life will never forget these amazing companions if you make one! The best thing is that they take only a few hours to knit and put together.
If you are making this bunny for kiddos under three, please replace the button eyes with something embroidered instead.
If this makes your mind spin about some other animal you want giant and ride-able, let me know below, and I’ll see if I can make the giant stuffed animal from your dreams come true!! Lots of love!!
I am so happy you are here! I am a maker and lover of beautiful things. Find DIY’s, patterns, projects and inspiration to endlessly delight you in your quest for a happy handmade life.
