2015 Gift Reveal: Bunnies + Carrots

A few years ago, my sister-in-law gave me a book of knitting patterns that exclusively feature animal hats. She pointed out how great the rabbit hat is. Hint taken.

Fast forward two years and nephew #8, her son, is at a perfect rabbit hat age, three years old. I couldn't resist making him one! And of course every bunny needs a carrot to munch.

However, nephew #8 was in no mood to model the cuteness, so I took over that job for him... 

There was great lobbying for the second rabbit hat (why, yes, one is not enough!) to stay at our house, as you can see from the glee of our second model.

Nephew #7 (also three years old) loves bunnies above most other items.

It went right on his head with no questions asked! 

Soft lining sewn inside.

The knit carrot got eaten by his new stuffed bunny on Christmas Eve.

It was yummy, I hear!

(Pigs are known to feast on carrots as well. Bad piggy! No snacking!) 

Pattern: Animal Hats by Vanessa Mooncie - Rabbit
Yarn: handspun yarn held double from a Copworth Gray sheep named Norman
Carrot Pattern found here: 
I modified the greenery. 
Yarns: Malabrigo sock (green) and Elsbeth Lavold Hempathy (orange)

Happy New Year! While not the year of the rabbit, I predict bunny hats will nonetheless have a big impact this winter!
