Big Bear

from Huggable Bears
(6) Name: 'Knitting : Big Bear
Big Bear
Big Bear
Big Bear

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Cast on/off
  • Knit and purl
  • Some sewing up of finished bear

Pattern Description:

I've been asked many times to design a bear that is easier to assemble. Big Bear has his legs and body knitted as one piece which makes knitting him and sewing him together a lot easier.

He sits easily and as there is a simple seam sewn across the top of his legs this makes his legs lovely and floppy. He even has a tail. He's a cuddly, soft big bear looking for someone special to love him.

This pattern comes complete with very detailed photographed assembly instructions to help guide you through the process.

I have designed several outfits for Big Bear which are not available with this pattern, there is another Big Bear pattern available that includes all his outfits. This PDF is for Big Bear only.
