The animal to find the mitten after the mole is the snowshoe rabbit. Today I’m sharing the pattern for the snowshoe rabbit in my The Mitten character ball series.

For the next month, I will be sharing a character ball set to tell the story of The Mitten. The animals all fit snugly in the mitten and will really fly when the mitten is flipped inside out.

Week by week I will share another character and will link them all up when finished. So far I have already shared the pattern for the big mitten. You can get started there and fill the mittens week by week with the character balls.
