This sweet little stuffed bear makes a great handmade gift. Knit in one piece with very minimal seaming, he knits up quickly and requires little finishing.
Techniques used in this pattern beyond knit and purl include increasing, decreasing, 3 needle bind off and a small amount of short rowing.

I've been into DIY since I was little, but these days my main craft is knitting. My mother taught me the basics when I was eleven, and after several years of neglect I picked it up again at university. When I can squeeze it around my day job, I love to come up with knitting patterns, you can check out what I've got in development over on my blog, www.studiomarlowe.com
