FO: Petit Arc-en-Ciel & Little Bunny Girl


A little later then planned (so I’m hoping the baby hasn’t already grown out of it), but I finally finished this gift.

Pattern: Petit Arc-en-Ciel by Solenn Couix-Loarer
Yarn: Lana Grossa Cool Wool Baby & Happy Go Lucky Sock Skeinbow


First up this adorable cardigan. I’m still so pleased that this was a perfect match for the Skeinbow that I won with the very fun but also very weird Breaking Cat knitting project. The first project I made with them were a pair of rainbow wanderer socks and they’re the happiest things ever. Now the colours are forming an adorable yoke, which seriously makes me wonder if I as an adult could also pull off a rainbow yoke. It would totally look professional and adult-y right? I picked the Lana Grossa yarn because it’s hopefully machine washable, let’s hope the skeinbow yarn will also manage! I decided to make the pocket in the same purple yarn that also ends the rainbow.


Pattern: Bunny Girl in a Dotty Dress by Julie Williams
Yarn: Drops Safran

This is such a cute pattern and I think I’ll include it in many gifts to come, however what surprised me was the fact that absolutely nothing was knit in the round. This means lots of sewing and god I hate sewing things up. All in all it felt like such a fiddly process that I’m a little glad it’s finished. Still though, I really will be making more Little Cotton Rabbits in the future, because just look at it! And the fact that you can make loads of different clothes to go with the animals is perfect.

  1. God sewing all those bits together would legitimately kill me. I mean, it really is cute as all hell, but there has to be a way to knit at least some of it in the round!

  2. That is an adorable gift! The rainbow is so bright and happy! I hear you on the knit everything in the round, I do not like to sew/seam.

  3. I went back to see your Breaking Cat series… it is brilliant! You can see all the time that was put into it.

    And all those finished baby items are giving me ideas. I have a friend who is expecting and I’ve been trying to work out what I might want to knit for her.

  4. Wow, such adorable projects! Love the rainbow cardigan (I totally want to wear one, too!). The bunny is sooo cute. You did a wonderful job with all the finishing details. I actually plan on knitting one up for charity in the near future.
