It was sitting in one of the boxes for a long time till I picked it up.,,, so we are going to knit one from scratch. Let’s learn how to make peep bunny with yarn.

Tips and Tricks about Peep Bunny – perfect Easter knitted project
As I mentioned I am going to make mine from scratch but those peep bunnies can be made out of anything . if you crotchet technique is the same .. if you don’t have circular machine or knit or crotchet you can cut soft kitchen towel and follow steps too. I have done that
Make sure to watch video on YouTube that I made at the end of this post
I have made so many bunnies and shared details with you. Make sure to check this post with video to see how this one was made HERE . We will for sure make that version on circular knitting machine but again you can use anything even fabric to make one . Steps are the same
Let’s draft our peep bunny
If you have circular machine you cast your yarn and knit 2 tubes of 40 rows on Sentro 22 and 80 rows on Sentro 48
but again you can use kitchen towels, crocheted rectangles or fabric to make Easter Peep bunny
if you are thinking to get one of those make sure to watch a full video on how I did that . Video is at the end of this post
Just beause I use circular machine i am trying to hide my seams with tapestry stich. All is explained in the VIDEO at the end of this post .
Love how neat is that since you cant see connection, Make sure to leave around 10 stiches at the end of each side for ears
You will need to stich both sides to create body of our Easter bunny
Time to work on our peep knitted ears now. I like to stuff them after I begin to close them same way we did sides earlier .
When you get to top pull all your strings but watch out for the ones you used to close body and hide them each ear
Again all this knitting and closing steps are details in the video at the end of this blog post
Ears are done! Time to work on the body of our marshmallow body!
Make sure to watch video below to see how I defined my peep bunny body
