NOTE: EU purchasers MUST purchase my patterns here: Graduation time is upon us! I've never seen a knit graduation bear, so I decided to create School Colors Graduation two sizes (approx. 9" or 12" sitting, without ears or caps) and different yarns (both worsted weight or bulky fuzzy or eyelash)! What a wonderful gift for your special graduate to receive a bear dressed in cap, gown and honor cord, all in the school colors! And you could make it even more special by personalizing it with the graduate's name and/or year on the top of the cap! Celebrate the accomplishment... preschool to college...with one of these distinctive adorable bears and let the graduate know just how special he/she is! BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Knit, Purl, Increase, Decrease, Cast-on, Bind-off GAUGE Work tightly enough to ensure that the stuffing will not show through the stitches of the bears. For the cap, gown & honor cord: Size 6 needles...9 stitches & 12 rows per 2" SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Large Bear (sitting): approx. 12" without ears or cap, approx. 13 1/2" with cap Small Bear (sitting): approx. 9" without ears or cap, approx. 10" with cap. SUGGESTED YARN 440 yards of Bulky weight PREFERRED BRAND/YARN Your choice COLORWAY Your choice
