Little Hooded Coat for Rabbits Knitting Pattern
This is my favorite little sweater for bunnies made from the Miss Maggie Rabbit pattern. One, because I just love garter stitch. And two, because it's a hoodie. For a bunny. With holes to let his or her ears come through! Right on! Suitable for boy or girl bunnies (the pattern will direct you to proper buttonhole placement), this sweater is knit first, and then the hood is knit separately and sewn on.
