Oh, Bunny! Washcloth Pattern

Hi Knitters,
One more quick washcloth knit is here. I love bunnies at Easter time but they are good any time of year as well.
Here are the skills you need to knit this bunny:
cast on
bind off
pick up stitches

level: easy if you know the skills above!

crochet edging (optional):
single crochet
slip stitch

Finished measurements:
Body: 7.5 by 7 inches
Paw to top ear: 10 inches

Yarn: 1 skein Crystal Palace Cotton Chenille, 98 yards
Any worsted weight cotton will work fine!

Needles: US size 6 for the chenille
Size H crochet hook (optional)
I've only had time to knit a white bunny but I think a pink or blue or pistachio bunny would be super cute. The tail is a pom-pom out of Sugar-n-Cream because I don't think the chenille works well for pom-poms due to shredding. The tail is optional, of course, but I love it so I added it on. You choose.
Some other Easter-y knits include: 
Sweetheart Washcloth (try these in pastel egg colors)
Bunny and Chick easy knit toys

Soaps available at The Stone Fence in Madison (eggs and bunny), they don't have a website. The bunny soap is Tag brand, which can be found in lots of gift stores. The Soap Opera has many glycerin holiday soaps including an Easter Egg soap.
