You've probably seen them everywhere: Cozy, chunky knit blankets are really big right now. In fact, they've become so popular, there are now a ton of easy DIY tutorials that exist, and we've seen a boon in cute spin-off accessories too. But of all the interpretations we've seen, this idea is by far the most adorable.
These giant knit bunnies can be made in just a few hours using an arm knitting technique, which gives these knits their cozy, chunky look, according to their designer, Annie Weil of Flax and Twine and author of Knitting Without Needles. The project only requires a few materials, and you can use a set of free instructions and patterns to make them, which Annie shared with Sweet Paul magazine.

The bunny patterns come in two different sizes, and you can customize their look by using various yarn hues. The instructions recommend this project for intermediate knitters, but fellow crafters have reassured that just about anyone can tackle this simple project. "If you knit, you practically don't even need the pattern," one commenter wrote on Facebook. "[This was] my first knitting project on a larger scale. Love it."
These precious creatures are a wonderful homemade present to give year-round, but they're especially fitting as an Easter gift. If you love the idea but aren't up for the afternoon of knitting required, you can also purchase custom-made bunnies in small and large sizes through Flax and Twine.
