Adorable Rabbit Knitting Patterns

If you’re the crafty type, you may be considering making gifts for the holiday season.  One November, I decided to make this knitted rabbit by fuzzymitten (pattern can be found at this link).  I thought it might be fun to try another pattern this year.  I found several that were incredibly cute, and wanted to share them with everyone.
