I made these little bunny slippers for Valentines Day for my 2 year old granddaughter. Materials I used include a thick pink yarn for the main body and ears, a normal red/maroon variegated yarn for the tail, nose, eyelashes and trim, white buttons with red pupils hand-painted on them. I used number 9 knitting needles for a gauge of about 4 stitches or 7 rows equaling about 1 inch. I also used a tapestry needle to sew the parts together. The slippers measured about 5 inches long when completed.
Step 1: Begin by Casting On Stitches
Begin by casting on 23 stitches and leave about a ten to twelve inch tail to sew the heel when finished. (If using regular yarn, I suggest you use double strands). I cast on by making a loop and then adding the next loop to the needle.
