Here's a close-up of Bunny's face. I really like the droopy ears.
And a back view of the cottontail. Yarn used is a DK cotton/linen blend from KnitPicks.
Directions for knitting this bunny are in the book Itty-Bitty Toys by Susan B. Anderson, a book which is chock full of cute little animals to knit. Plus it has great directions -- this book gets the credit for teaching my daughter how to knit in the round. My daughter has already made most of the animals in the book, however (which you can see here and some more here). She is now on the lookout for some other cute patterns to add to her repertoire.
In the meantime, Bunny was a hit with the small fry at the baby shower, getting broken in with a lot of toddler love -- thankfully, said toddler was able to gracefully give Bunny up at the end of the shower:)

And while we're on the subject of knitted toys, I just discovered a cutie that I had neglected to blog about:
