Antonio the rabbit and his best friend Roberta the kitty are helpful bean bag paperweights.
Use them to keep important notes from blowing away in the breeze, or for holding the pages of your pattern book open when your hands are busy with yarn and needles.
They’re made in one piece, starting with a triangular garter stitch base, worked flat. Stitches for the body are picked up along the edges of the base, and the body is worked in the round. The face is embroidered and the piece is stuffed while the work is still on the needles, and then the open top is knitted together and the ears are worked. You don’t even have to weave in the ends, because you use them to make the tails!
