Big Bear

Project Description

What was your source for this knitting project? Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo Big Bear and Outfits Link to website or photo www.craftsy.com/pattern/knitting/toy/big--bear-and-outfits/35715 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.

What you will need

  • Yarn Paradise long eyelash for the bear. Crafters Chunky for the hooded sweater

Q&A with Gypsycream

patz in suffolk asked:
He's adorable! And I love his little tail! How tall is he?
Gypsycream answered:
Thank you for you kind comment. I have to admit that he's my favourite so far, just can't stop knitting him. Its like he comes to life with every row!

Oh Pat, he is adorable... have been trying to decide which bear I would put on the needles.. may I say perfect timing!!! Have to go purchase this one for sure.. I've never knitted a sweater though.. still not sure he'll have one of those to wear.. : )
Gypsycream answered:
Give the sweater a go Marianne, its really easy, as most of my designs are :)
Rainebo asked:
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!
Gypsycream answered:
Thank you :)
marciakeane asked:
just got the pattern and cant wait to try it where can i get fun fur in aran type
Gypsycream answered:
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.
BearyAnn asked:
The sweater on the bear is gorgeous. I must try that. Is that pattern also in your store?
Gypsycream answered:
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
