Little Bluebell is hand knitted from a pattern designed by the very talented Claire Garland – her designs are fabulous and you can find more here www.etsy.com/uk/shop/DotpebblesKnits
Hand knitted from a mix of pure wool, alpaca and mohair to create his realistic colouring. I have made Bluebell by using each of these three yarn types held together and knitted as one yarn. This is a great way to change colour giving subtle tones, in fact Bluebell is made from twelve different colours.
For his colouring I have used black, dark ash grey and chocolate brown wool and alpaca, with bronze, fawn and warm grey mohair in different areas of his body. His tummy is white, cream and beige – there is so much detail here! Bluebell’s ears are lined with fawn and pink shades of mohair and his little brown tail is edged with white.
Bluebell is a lovely little rabbit with a rounded face – very cute, he is beautifully tactile too (the fluffy mohair making him so soft and cuddly it’s difficult to put him down!) He measures 12 inches in height and is a one of a kind little rabbit.
