Over the past few months, chrisfourfalcon has been posting some really nifty stitch patterns making use of “bunny ears decreases.” I think my favorites are Little hearts:
And Bunny Ears Mesh:
Up until now, Chris has had to make do with 3-to-2 gather symbols. But bunny ears decreases are so special – they reduce three stitches to two and create a symmetrical result – that I figured they deserved symbols of their own:
Bunny ears decshows that three stitches become two that lean away from each other.
Bunny ears back decshows that three stitches become two that lean towards each other.
These symbols make it possible to create stitch maps like this one for Little hearts:
The key, of course, details how to work these decreases. Enjoy!
