Garter Stitch Bunny and Bear PDF Knitting Pattern.

Knit a garter stitch bunny and bear with our instant download knitting pattern PDF.

What better way to while away the hours than to knit these cute bunny and bear friends.   Knitted in garter stitch (knit stitch), they use basic knitting techniques, including:

  • Cast on
  • Knit stitch
  • Increase
  • Decrease
  • Cast off

This is a great pattern for new knitters because it uses all of the basic knitting techniques, so if you can cast on, and knit, pick up those needles, and get cracking!  Once you’ve done a couple of increases, you’ll be away.  And if you get stuck?  Fret not, just get in touch via our Contact Us page, and we’ll lend a helping hand.

For each toy, you’ll need 1 x 50g Ball of DROPS Alaska yarn, and oddments in a contrast colour to make the scarf.You’ll also need a pair of 4.5mm knitting needles, a pompom maker (for the bunny’s tail), or cardboard rings (we used a 35mm pompom maker), some toy filling, and 4 buttons to make the jointed limbs.  N.B. sew on the buttons with a really tough thread – we use “top stitch” or “buttonhole thread”.
