“Hop-Hop” the Bunny

I knit this bunny for my niece’s first birthday.  I started this project within days of learning the purl stitch.  Needless to say, I had to start over at least four times and look up countless youtube tutorials to complete it.  I think it was worth it, though.  I progressed a lot and ended up with this vintage-looking stuffed animal that I hope she cherishes.

This pattern was found in Last-Minute Knitted Gifts by Joelle Hoverson, along with similar patterns for an elephant and bear.
