Big Bear

Project Description

What are you most proud of? I've put a lot of work into this bear and designed him in such a way that he has a gap at the top of his legs where they meet his body. So many toys/bears knitted in this manner don't have any space and look knocked knee'd. Designing outfits is new to me, I usually design creatures not clothes :-) But I had fun! What advice would you give someone starting this project? Enjoy it!

What you will need

  • Aran/worsted weight faux fur

buffaloannie asked:
Could you give some suggestions of the fur yarn?? I can't get it locally and will need to order online....wonder if you have recommendations????? Thanks
Gypsycream answered:
The best online store I've used is Yarn Paradise they have a wonderful selection of faux furs/eyelash yarns and although they shipping seems expensive, the yarn is so reasonable it balances out the cost. Plus the shipping is so quick. I've ordered one day are received it the next! Also Deramores have a few faux fur yarns in stock, but the yarns they stock aren't as thick as the ones stocked by Yarn Paradise.
