Oh, can my mom knit!

Thank you mom for knitting a beautiful bunny sweater for baby Katelynn Claire. This pattern is from 'animal knits' by Zoe Mellor. I made the bunnies, all eight of them, using duplicate stitch. Lesson to be learned: when knitting smaller sizes, test to see that the pattern's graph will yield the motif when it is shown in a much larger size. I suggest knitting a solid band where the motif would be placed when the motif is too small for stitch definition and embroider, using duplicate stitch for the motifs.
