# Happy Easter! Where’s The Bunny?

Happy Easter 2019 everybody! Happy Passover! חַג כָּשֵׁר וְשָׂמֵחַ

Back when I was a little kid in Austria my parents used to hide nests full of eggs, chocolate bunnies and other sweets in our back garden. The night before was usually full of anticipation for us: How much chocolate would be in the nest? How many eggs, what other candy? It was sugar feast primarily for us kids and we loved it.

Later, when I was the parent in charge to hide the sweets, I spent days dyeing eggs (usually very successful) and choosing tooth fairy friendly candy (usually not successful at all).

This year, my elder son is too old to be interested in such old-fashioned traditions and my little daughter spends time with her grandparents far far away so I felt a little lost. I need to hide eggs! Nests! Treats!

As nobody in this house is interested in egg and bunny search quests I needed a substitute.

## Let’s Find The Bunny!

Instead of hiding Easter eggs and chocolate I put up bunnies here on knitting.today. There are three little bunnies to be found all across the site. They are small but if you spot them you’ll find a secret knitting pattern hidden behind them.

If you happen to find one of these bunnies – click on them. Surprise! <3

The bunnies will disappear and hide in their secret nest by Wednesday evening again to spend their time until next year, so better look and find them straight away!

## Thank You, and Happy Holidays

I’m very grateful to have you as a reader here on knitting.today and hope you’ll enjoy spending time here in the future as well.

Thank you and have very nice, peaceful and joyful holidays – no matter which religion (or none at all) you feel home in.

PS: If you found one, let us know by leaving a comment – but psssht, don’t tell where! <3

PPS: I’ll share screenshots of the three hidden bunnies on Thursday morning to let you all know where they were hiding, and how many people were successful in finding them. There’s three bunnies but all lead to the same knitting pattern so if you found one, congratulations and no need to look further! Happy Easter!

Thank you Dr. Julia! The shawl is beautiful, I can’t wait to start knitting it!

Found a bunny!!! Thanks Julia for the shawl. This was fun!!

found the bunny…thank you for the shawl pattern

Thank You for the fun — hunting for the little bunnies through your website was a lovely way to spend some time, thinking of you…. I found all 3 and will enjoy the pattern 🙂

Found it! So pretty. Thanks much!

Thank you, Julia!

I found one!

I found one!! yay! Thank you! I’ve been eyeing that pattern for a long time! Happy Easter!

Thank you Dr. Julia! Love the shawl!

thank you, Julia. I found a bunny! (now if it had been a REAL bunny, I would have been even more excited!)

Found 2 bunnies and thank you very much!

Found and thank you!!!

Such a pretty one!

Found one! Thank you

Thank you. That was fun.

is this an accidental repost, or are there really bunnies with a surprise pattern link in 2019? have searched off an on today and can’t find anything,

There are bunnies every year!

Thank you, Julia, for your 2019 bunny hunt and your lovely shawl pattern. I found all 3 bunnies.

(If it helps clarify the bunny hunt for other followers, when you click on a bunny, nothing may appear to happen, BUT LOOK IN THE SPOT WHERE YOUR COMPUTER DOWNLOADS PDF FILES; Julia has gifted you the PDF file for one of her lovely shawls; EACH (or ANY) of the 3 bunnies will allow you to download the PDF for the ONE particular shawl pattern which she is gifting this year.)

Found one and got the lovely pattern, but never did find the others. Still, great fun looking, and what a nice reminder of all the wonderful information available! Thank you!

I found one, thank you!

Found my bunny! I also started reading some of the posts which I had missed, and am inspired to knit something new now (I had put all of my current projects in time out because I was feeling blah…). Now I have no excuse. Thank you!!!

Excited to have found a bunny! Thank you for the fun challenge! Be well and peace.

With my little eye a bunny I did spy!

Thank you for the pattern and the bunny hunt!

I received your email to “find the bunnies” about an hour and a half ago and I can’t believe I wasted the last hour and a half looking for bunnies but not finding any. Stupid me for wasting my time like this….

Thanks so much…Happy Easter!

Thank you so much for the pattern. Happy easter to you and everybody!

Thank you, Julia!

Yaba daba doo- I found one!!! Hehe

Hab eins! Ganz herzlichen Dank!

Found a bunny and the pattern is so lovely. Thanks very much and Happy Easter!

I found a bunny. Thank you so much for the Easter pattern treat.

Found one bunny! Thank you, Julia.

I couldn’t find any. I definitely read a lot ;). So it was worthwhile hiding those bunnies.

Thanks Julia

Had No problem understanding the instructions and finding the bunnies was quite fun,Ty!

I do have a question though. I found all 3 bunnies, but all 3 had the exact same pattern. Were they supposed to be all the same or each one have a different pattern?

It’s confusing because this post says 2017? Is this live again for 2018 or an old post that has resurfaced?

Wow! That was easy. Thank you for the lovely pattern.

I am so glad I found a bunny quickly because I was so easily distracted as I looked around in your site I forgot to keep looking for more. Thank you, it was fun.

Was a lost cause for me too.

I found the bunny. Thank you for a fun game and the pattern is beautiful.

i found only one bunny! what a clever idea! thank you for the pattern.

I found one! Thank you.

I found two bunnies. Thanks for the pattern

Thank you so much! This is such a fun thing to do!! Found the free pattern. Thank you again for your generosity

Thank you for the Phoebe shawl.

Found Phoebe the bunny. Thanks. Hope you had a wonderful Easter.

I found one! It has been a long time since I have searched for bunnies or eggs, but I sure enjoyed looking for them on your site. Thank you for the lovely pattern and for letting me join the fun. Happy Easter to you and your family. 🙂

Found a Bunny & TY for the Phoebe shawl pattern, it’s lovely! I wanted to say that the bunny I found was a LOT smaller than I’d been expecting & maybe that will help some of the people that haven’t had any luck.

Happy Easter & TY for sharing yours with us 🙂

I found one, thank you!

I found one. Thank you.

Found one, Thanks for the pattern!

I found one and thank you for a funny way to play on your website

Found one… thanks for the fun and for the pattern!

I found one bunny and behind it was a lovely pattern.

Thank-you.

Thank you! I found a bunny on my second click, ( just lucky) but kept looking because I didn’t read ALL of the instructions until I went back to see if there were any clues… smh! Hoppy Easter!

Thank you for Phoebe! Happy Easter!

I found a bunny and received a pattern. Thank you. And thanks for giving me the incentive to explore your site more. Happy Easter!

Like many of the folks above, I have looked and not been successful finding a bunny either. I guess that is life…

Found one AND the lovely pattern. Thank you and Happy Easter!

Yay found one, that was a fun search! Thanks so much for the pattern, it’s gorgeous!

Found one AND the lovely pattern. Thank you and Happy Easter!

Thank you very much for the lovely pattern. Must be in the name because I’m just like Keri – found one bunny (so far) but have enjoyed the search because I see how much useful information I’ve missed on your site previously. Thanks so very much. Happy Easter to you and your family.

What a cute idea — I loved poking around the site — and then found the Easter Bunnies (once I understood that they were a little icon at the end of the words in some of the posts).

Looking forward to trying out the PHOEBE shawl pattern — thank you so much and Happy Easter!

I appreciate your doing this! But I just don’t have time to hunt these down. I’ve tried twice, on numerous pages following numerous links. Maybe next time….

I found one! (But I don’t remember where, lol!)

Thank you!

Found one, unfortunately I used over half my monthly data and it’s just the 1st.

Guess I’m one of the losers this year. I’ve been through most of your site and can’t find anything. Looking at the comments on this post, most are from last year and many people had the same problem. Oh well, off to enjoy my family. One less free pattern for my library.

Found one … and the pattern, thanks!!!

Thank you for both the “Bunny hunt” and the lovely pattern. You certainly spoil us! Thanks again

I found all 3 bunnies. Happy Easter to ALL.. 🙂 Thanks for the pattern, lovely Easter present!

Found it!!! Thank you!!! Need to go back here and read the rest of the blog posts!!!

Thank you so much! I found one bunny. Neat pattern! I like it. This was fun.

Happy Easter Julia! What a super fun idea! (esp for all us “kids” who used to love Easter bunnies and eggs) I found a bunny and was nicely surprised with a copy of Phoebe ~ Thank you so much! It was also nice to be able to take a look around your site again. (excellent idea) There was so much I wanted to learn when a blog post would come out, like your shawl calculations. But at the time and as happens, life got super out of control. So now, that things have almost calmed down to normal – will get back on track! Thank you again!

Fun searching 🙂

Stopped at several interesting articles on the way. I found three bunnies in different places but only the one pattern. It’s gorgeous though, so thank you.

found one! thank you

Found them! Thanks for the pattern!

Happy Easter

Thanks. Found it on the first bunny

Thank you, I found one bunny. The pattern behind the three bunnies are different, do I have to search for the other two?

Have to say I can’t find bunnies – found one (can’t remember where) & it did not lead to a pattern have searched thru SDIPE & found none little yellow happy face means nothing to me… don’t know what else to search Oh well! Happy Easter anyway!!!

So, from others comments I need to search the whole site…No thanks!

Thank you so much for the lovely pattern! I found all 3 bunnies 🙂

Happy Easter! I found one (I found one last too), but I had to think how I did it last year. Sneaky, sneaky….but fun. It was a great way to view all the posts/tutorials/patterns/books/material on this website!!!! Thank you!

i found 1 of the 3… and kept looking for the other 2 for a half an hour, tab-by-tab, including doing a site-wide search using the bunny image. maybe they were buried deep in blog posts or something, but my free time, and patience, only let me look so far… thanks for the phoebe patter, it’s very nice! 🙂

I found one, thank you and Happy Easter

Found one bunny and more treasures. Thank you for the free pattern. Happy Easter!

Found a bunny! Thanks for the pattern – it is beautiful.

Thanks Dr. Julia, I found the bunny and the pattern is one I had on my wish list. I also found some great articles to go back and read again.

Got it! Thanks a lot <3

I don’t get it! the only thing in the pic that isn’t blurred is that bunny and the cup with eggs.

Yeah! I found 2. Thank you Julia for the pattern. Lovely. Joyeuses Pâques à vous aussi.

So the bunny was really small, thanks for the great pattern

Thanks, Dr. Julia! I found two bunnies and I’ve been waiting for that pattern! Happy Easter to you and yours!

I found one! I am impressed by the information on the site and will go back and review it more!

thank you!

I found one so far.

Thank you!

I found one, thank you!!

Lovely pattern. Thank you. I just bought 3 skeins of baby alpaca/silk yarn on sale in coordinated colors and I wasn’t sure what to make yet. This will be perfect.

I echo the just FYI note above, the bar appears on the side on my ipad and obscures a bit of the information.

Found one :-)) Thanks and happy easter!

Sigh – I’ve only found one bunny so far and I have been looking through a LOT of your site! Any more hints??? The upside is, I had NO idea your site was so extensive with so much great info!!! Clever you, to send us searching through your site!

There is the same secret behind each of them. There’s none in the shop section, that’s all I can say for now 🙂

Ah, that’s what I wanted to know! I found all three bunnies, but they all linked to the same pattern. That was fun! 🙂 Thanks for the pattern and the scavenger hunt!

Thank you! 🙂

I had no luck finding the hidden bunnies nor have I ever found any hidden items when you do this.

Others did – see the other comments! Keep looking 🙂

I found one! Thank you for the Phoebe pattern. <3

I found two and th pattern. Thank you.

I did, I did, I did find a bunny. Thank you for this lovely treat. I will one day make one of your lovely patterns and this will probably be a special one for my grandgirl.

Found the bunnies thank you very much for the pattern :o)

found three, just cuz I like a challenge. wish I had time to knit all these shawls, even samples of them would be awesome.

Found a bunny! Thank you

Thank you! Happy Easter!

Whew!! I found one. Don’t know how I missed it last evening. Pattern is very lovely. Thank you!

Know just how you feel with not being able to have the Easter Hunt.

Yeey, found one. Thank you and happy easter to you too.

Thank you for the bunny hunt! It was fun!

I found the bunny – exactly where I thought I would 🙂 Thank you for the little hunt <3

Maybe it doesn’t work on tablets. I get lots of adverts but very little of anything else. Certainly nowhere there are bunnies hiding.

Happy Easter Julia

I found the first one quickly, but next two very elusive! Interesting pattern, thanks. I hope you’ve enjoyed your Easter with family.

I found two! Thanks for the pattern!!!

Wow! I found a bunny in less than 5 minutes and all the clues didn’t help. I kind of stumbled upon it. Thank you for the hunt and pattern.

Hey I’ve found one of them ! Thank you so much ! Happy Easter too !

Finally found one!! Thanks for the fun game and the pattern. It was a clever idea. I have read the posts weekly, for nearly a year, but in re-reading i saw things that I had forgotten! I’m inspired again!

I found the bunnies and the pattern. Once I figured out, with a hint, it was easy. Thank you for the hint and the beautiful pattern! Thank you for the hunt as well, mine are all grown too 🙁

I found one 🙂

Thanks so much and Happy Easter

I found a bunny, thanks a lot and happy Easter to you, too!

Thank you for the pattern Julia. Had fun searching and happy that I found one 🙂

YAY! Found a bunny (and lots of interesting articles on the way which I will be going back to….).

Thank you Julia for another beautiful design :o)

I found a bunny!

Thank you so much,Julia.

I found 2 bunnies, but I got the same pattern from both. At least, I think they were 2 different bunnies. I will probably keep looking, you have a lot of interesting stuff on your site! Thanks for the pattern. 🙂

There’s only one type of bunny 🙂

Yes, I meant 2 bunnies in 2 different places.

Found a bunny, lovely pattern, thank you

I found a bunny, it didn’t take long to find him. Lovely pattern thank you.

Happy Easter

Dxxx

“Happy Easter” !

I found three bunnies!

Thanks for the pattern!

I looked elsewhere on the site, tutorials, shop, etc and no bunnies. 30 minutes is enough time

I think I looked at almost all pages in this site. Did not find a single bunny. Many interesting things though. And that annoying social media bar on the left that I have to click out of the way for wach new page. Happy Easter! Frohe Ostern!

Thank you–I found a bunny! I after finding one I became rather obsessed with finding more, but no luck yet. Those bunnies are sneaky 🙂

I found the pattern behind a little bunny. Just for fun I looked for the other bunnies but couldn’t find them. I’ll be waiting for those screenshots. It was fun, thank you.

I found one… my eyes are crossed from looking and reading so much!!! You are a true gem in the knitting world. Love your work. Thanks for the pattern!

I’ve found one bunny (Thank-you for the pattern, Julia!), but have foraged unsuccessfully for the other two! On my journey, I’ve been waylaid by lots of interesting reading, so thank-you for that as well. Happy Easter everyone!

I found one — thanks for the pattern!

I found one! Thank you for the awesome free pattern. Happy Easter! ❤

Happy Easter Julia!!

Thank you for the “bunny” pattern!!

Happy Easter!

Thank you for the “bunny” knitting pattern!

I found 2! Thank you for the pattern!

Found a bunny, and down loaded the pattern. Fun idea! Thank you, it was nice to look over the website again.

Thank you, I found all 3! Happy Easter

What fun! I love my bunny pattern surprise! Today was my birthday so it was extra special for me! Thank you for all you do!

Found one! 🙂 That was fun, thanks!

Thanks for the “bunny search”… and the lovely pattern!

I found one. Thank you this was a fun game with a great gift at the end. Happy Easter!

Found one! Thank you!

Happy Easter to you! I found one bunny, thank you for the pattern. Now you have me curious…but at least I am reading all the other posts that I have missed, especially the shawl design ones. Silly me, I don’t know why I never went through your website before!

It was quite a search but I found a bunny :-). Thanks for the pattern and I hope you had a Happy Easter!

I found two bunnies. The pattern is lovely. Thank you, Julia, that was fun! Happy Holiday!

I found two!!! Thanks so much. It as fun, and I learned a few thing, too.

Found all three, after I got so frustrated I had to walk away. Once I got over being annoyed, I gave it a good thought, slapped myself in the forehead, and said ‘duh’. I had made it so much moredifficult than it needed to be. Thanks for the pattern…and the earch. lol!,

sorry for the typos…

more difficult

search

Thanks Julia, found the bunny and got the pattern. I like the thinking behind where you put the one I found!!!

Found a bunny and the pattern. Thank you! Happy Easter to you and your family.

Found one! Thank you for the pattern.

Found one!

I just spent an hour or more looking all over the site including tutorials, books, patterns, etc. and haven’t found one bunny. With so many pages, a hint or two might help. I’ve already explored most of your site in the past but am saddened by not finding one bunny. 🙁

Also, just FYI, when viewing your site on an iPad, the list on the left for likes, Pinterest, email, etc. overlaps the pages interfering with reading.

Hint: bright yellow, and SDIPE 🙂 Thanks for the notice, I’ll check for the iPad layout issue.

Finally found it. Yay! Thanks for the hint and the beautiful pattern! Happy Easter/Passover!

I found a bunny, and what lovely pattern! Thank you so much. I also enjoyed some of the posts I found along the way that I’m bookmarking for later.

I finally found them!. Cute idea. It’s so sad when your babies don’t want to be babies anymore.

She’s given you a hint, if you see it. The bunnies will be found in amongst text. Text is searchable. You can find at least 2 bunnies this way.

Tried searching many ways and nothing came back anywhere on the website…and I did not see an email about where they were hidden

It ended a while ago. Easter has passed 😉

It’s Easter today here.

thank you,, kim6erly <3 was easy peasy then

That was fun. Thank you very much, for both the hunt and the beautiful pattern! I look forward to hearing from you more this year. Happy Easter.

Not sure where else to look but cannot spot any bunnies on the April 15th newsletter:(

Not sure where else to look but cannot spot any bunnies on the April 15th newsletter:(

Not in the newsletter … on the website 🙂

I found a bunny! Thanks for the pattern!

Good for you! I scrolled all over the place, and just couldn’t find one.

I found two! And the pattern–thank you Julia! ❤️

Found a bunny!!

Thank you Juli

Happy Easter!

Spellcheck!!

It put Juli instead of Julia!!!!

I didn’t get it, either.

Guess I have to be less cryptic next year … thanks for your feedback!

Guess I don’t understand. I clicked on the three little bunnies I could see and thought I saw a face of one on a vase, but nothing happened and they didn’t disappear. Guess I’m not with it.

Did you find a bunny in the wild – not the ones in this post? If you click on a found bunny there’s a knitting pattern hidden behind that will open when you click on the bunny … so far, 16 people have been successful 🙂

I hid three bunnies in three different posts here on knitting.today. If you happen to find one, click on it! <3

So there is only one free pattern from the three bunnies, right? I found all three bunnies, and they led to the same pattern. That was a lot of fun! Thank you!

Ah found two bunnies thank you it’s been fun I really do love your email

I managed to find two out of the three 🙂 thank you!

I didn’t get it either. Don’t know what you mean by “a bunny in the wild.” Nor how we’d know which posts to look in. There appear to be bunnies and words hidden behind this post, but impossible to see what they say as they’re not clickable. Can’t find any other bunnies though. I did look in several other posts, but couldn’t find bunnies in them

Happy 2018 Easter! I found 3 Bunnies! Thanks!

I’m glad you at least found the 3 bunnies! I’ve been clicking on every blue link for over an hour and have not found a single bunny…giving up! Hope you get your patterns! Happy Easter!

I found it! Thank you!

Now the contest is over could you please post where one bunny was. I do not believe there were any bunnies.

Just read the other’s comments. There were three bunnies: One in the Shawl Design for Everybody post, one in the Lace Knitting main post, and in “What about shawls for men”.
