What materials did you use? Yarn Paradise long eyelash for the bear. Crafters Chunky for the hooded sweater

What are you most proud of? Designing the legs and body as one piece. I also wanted to have a space between the top of the legs so I could get a big tummy in, I think I achieved this successfully.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? If you haven't worked with faux fur before perhaps knit a Big Bear in a plain yarn first, to get a feel for the pattern. You will still achieve a very sweet bear.

He's just darling, Pat! Such a sweet face...and that tail is just too cute! I love how he's dressed in that hoodie. Much success!

Thank you for purchasing the pattern :-) As to the yarn, its hard to advise as I'm not sure where you live. I get most of my yarns from Yarn Paradise, they are based in Turkey but their shipping is really fast. If you are in the US I've heard that Lion Brand Fun Fur is good. UK King Cole or Sirdar. Put it this way if the ball band says its 50grams and there is 90 meters or less then that's the thicker of the eyelash yarns, the one for this project. Sorry I can't be of more help.

I use Yarn Paradise, its a store based in Turkey but they ship around the world. I've heard that Lion Brand Fun Fur is similar.

The sweater on the bear is gorgeous. I must try that. Is that pattern also in your store?

This sweater is a free download for Huggable Bear. If you look in my store you will see it on a white bear and the sweater is pink. Just add it to your cart and check out, you will not be charged :D
