Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

Such a cute idea. I know my cat would love these cute little bunnies, so thanks for the free pattern!

This is a fab little pattern which works up really quickly it is easy to follow for beginner knitters, I saw it and thought how cute they were but do not have a cat. Instead I made them and put stuffing and lavender inside which I them made for mini Christmas pressents, I have a couple myself and keep them in my clothing drawers so they keep my jumpers nice and fresh smelling. Thank you for sharing yet another fab free pattern.

Just an idea, I have small dogs and I will make these and put a small squeaker in them, it is difficult to find small toys for them and I know they will love these.

Hey jscheele, I actually think that's a great alternative to catnip for a cat toy, too. Or, keep the catnip and add the squeaker as well. Or just stuff it with some batting or cotton. So many ideas for this! The colors are amazing, too. These would be great as stocking stuffers for cat parents. We always like it when people remember our pets. I'm going to knit up a bunch for my sweet girl Mollie. I can just see her carrying her bunny around the house.

These cute little bunnies would make a wonderful Easter/Spring wreath. I think I would follow the instructions for the The Grass is Greener Wreath found in this eBook http// == w-to-Make-Easter-Crafts-7-Cute-Easter-Craft-Projec == ts-eBook and tuck in a few bunnies along with the flowers. It would be pretty in soft pastels or bright colors and could also be used as a sweet decoration of the nursery.

I am trying to download catnip bunnies and not able to do so. please help as i want to make the bunnies

Hey there! First, you're going to want to click "Click here for knitting pattern" on this page. Then, beneath the second bunny picture on the website it took you to, there will be the sentence "Pattern is available as a free pdf download on ravelry right here." Click the word "here." Finally, you're going to want to click "free Ravelry download" in the middle of the page, and "download PDF" on the message that pops up. Bear in mind that you need a PDF reader, such as Adobe Acrobat, to view the file. I hope that helps!

Great pattern and really easy to follow I've made a couple of these for my kitties, the only extra tip I would add is on the slip stitches to slip them as if you were pearl one, makes it much easier :)

my cats would love this for christmas i might make this

Can't really comment on pattern since it wasn't being shown.... tried several times clicking on 'Click here for pattern' to no avail

OMG it looks more like a wreath decoration that a cat toy, but mint! <(.)> everywhere will LOVE it!
