I hardly know what to say. I keep looking at Ella Austin’s Brunny the Bunny and I just can’t handle it.
Brunny is surely the most winsome cobalt blue knitted rabbit I’ve ever seen.
There is no better finale to the Boost Your Knitting series of video tutorials and patterns than this project. And to have Jen’s predictably calm counsel on the stuffing and assembling of Brunny?
Three Mission-Critical Bunny-Makin’ Videos
You want to get this right. You don’t want to end up with some lumpen, weird-faced rabbit.
Jen covers all the crucial moments in the process of turning a bunch of tubes into an heirloom that will someday be given to a child with the admonition: “This is a treasure. It’s from 2020. Your great-great-great-great grandparent made it. And they nailed the ears, OK? The ears are incredible.”

How to Get in on Boost Your Knitting
At this point, the journey of a dozen projects is at its end. Jen has brought us twelve projects from some of the best designers working today, along with techniques that elevate our knitting and make us feel really clever.
We have the print edition of Boost Your Knitting in the MDK Shop. But we strongly encourage you to scamper over to Jen’s website, right here, where you can order both the book and the three yarn kits that include special yarns for all twelve projects.
I mean, where else are you going to find that cobalt blue for Brunny the Bunny?
Keep the Conversation Going
The conversation in the Arnall-Culliford Knitwear group on Ravelry never ends and is full of help. This is a lively, friendly group, and it shows no signs of ending anytime soon.
Scroll down to see all the Boost Your Knitting video tutorials. You’re going to see a technique you’ve been curious about, and by the end of Jen’s short video, you’ll see the path forward.
Thank you, Jen, for giving us such rich instruction, clever projects, and all-around joy.
