Pattern Description:

Brambles Bear: An original Amanda Keeys knitting pattern.

Brambles Bear is a sweet little bear to knit up and love.

This pattern is knit in the round in separate pieces and seamed together at the end.

While matching gauge isn't terribly important, I suggest using a needle at least 2 sizes smaller than recommended for your yarn choice to give you a firmer fabric that will not allow the stuffing to escape.

Additional materials needed include 100% wool roving for stuffing. Wool stuffing has a very pleasant weight and warmth to it that cannot be replicated with polyester toy stuffing. Although you could substitute with the toy stuffing, the wool stuffing helps to make for a sturdier and cuddlier bear. Optional: Toy safety eyes OR glass bear eyes. Lace ribbon.

Note: Pattern is intended for PERSONAL USE only. Please *contact me* if you would like to knit items for sale.
