    • To print the patterns, click on the "Download Project PDF" button (above).

    • GAUGE:
    • 16 sts + 22 rows = 4" (10 cm) in St st (k on RS, p on WS).
    • BE SURE TO CHECK YOUR GAUGE.

    • STITCH EXPLANATIONS:
    • M1 (make 1) An increase worked by lifting the horizontal strand lying between needles and placing it onto left needle. Knit this new stitch through the back loop – 1 st increased.
    • ssk (slip, slip, knit) Slip next 2 sts as if to knit, one at a time, to right needle; insert left needle into fronts of these 2 sts and knit them tog – 1 st decreased.

    • PATTERN STITCHES:
    • K2, p2 Rib (multiple of 4 sts + 2 extra sts)
    • Row 1 (WS): P2, *K2, p2; rep from * to end of row.
    • Row 2: K the knit sts and p the purl sts.
    • Rep Row 2 for K2, p2 Rib.

    • Seed St (worked over an odd number of sts)
    • Row 1 (RS): *K1, p1; rep from * to last st, k1.
    • Row 2: K the purl sts and p the knit sts.
    • Rep Row 2 for Seed st.

    • NOTES:
    • Hoodie is worked in 10 pieces; Back, 2 Fronts, 2 Sleeves, Hood, 2 Outer Ears and 2 Inner Ears.
    • Fronts are worked in intarsia colorwork, following Chart. Bunny ‘belly’ is worked in Seed st while rem sts are worked in St st (k on RS, p on WS).
    • When working Bunny Belly Chart for Left Front, read RS rows from right to left and WS rows from left to right. When working Chart for Right Front, read RS rows from left to right and WS rows from right to left.
    • When working in intarsia colorwork, use a separate ball of yarn for each color section. Do not carry unused color(s) across WS. Twist yarns on WS to prevent holes.
    • When changing colors of Chart, first st should always be worked in St st.
    • When you see ‘– 12 sts’ in the instructions, this lets you know how many sts you will have at the end of that specific row.
