A friend asked me to design a polar bear. I asked her if any bear knitted in white couldn't be called a polar bear? She laughed and said do some research. So I did and saw that polar bears were different. They have large feet, small ears and nicely shaped muzzles. So I designed a polar bear!! This pattern includes 2 sizes, the large one sits at 12 inches/30cms and stands at 18 inches/46cms. The small one sits at 9 inches/23cms and stands at 14 inches/35cms. Designed to be knitted as flat using 2 straight knitting needles, the body and legs are knitted as one piece. This file also contains a step by step making up guide to help you assemble you bear, its full of photos and tips. It may be a good idea to print just the knitting directions and save the guide to refer to as and when you need it.

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.
