Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Cast on/off
  • Knit and Purl
  • Picking up stitches
  • Some sewing

Pattern Description:

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
Sweat Pants/Joggers
Thick Hooded Jacket (chunky/bulky weight)
