I've been asked to design a Big Bear that is easy to dress and to design outfits for children to dress a bear. This is the result. Big Bear is a quick and easy knit because his legs and body are knitted as one piece, certainly makes putting him together a lot easier too. This PDF/eBook includes instructions for Big Bear, very detailed making up instructions to guide you putting your bear together and a whole wardrobe out outfits for Big Bear. All outfits are knitted in Aran/worsted weight yarn apart from the Hooded Jacket, which is knitted in Chunky/bulky weight yarn. These outfits are a good stash buster!! These include: Pinafore dress Bloomers Dress Knickers/panties Sweat Pants/Joggers Sweater Thick Hooded Jacket (chunky/bulky weight) Hat If you just want to knit Big Bear and not his outfits there is another pattern for Big Bear.

Huggable Bears
I learnt the art of knitting when I was about 5 years old. Even at that age I was never happy to follow a pattern, always wanting to try something different. After a shoulder injury I found I couldn't knit anything heavy and out of sheer boredom I found myself knitting a bear. I didn't like the finished bear and thought I could do better myself so after a lot of frustrating frogging Huggable Bear was born. I love creating these bears and other animals, or should I say watching them create themselves, no two are ever alike.
