What materials did you use? A twisted yarn. The needle kept getting stuck in a twist of the yarn instead of sliding into the stitch on the needle. It was a bit frustrating but I think the bear turned out well.

What are you most proud of? This bear did not seem "right" without a tail, so I gave him one.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Ensure that you also download the comprehensive instructions for how to make up your bear. I had a few concerns about how to put him together as I had not done it before, Once I had the making up instructions, it was plain sailing. I am not a fast knitter, so it took me a while to make this bear and his pink sister, but I enjoyed this project, so will probably make another to have as a gift which is ready to give when required.

Another adorable little girl, how do you manage to get girls? I really struggle, even knitting in pink doesn't guarantee a girl with me lol!

What kind of yarn did you use?

Hi Gangy. I have added a picture of the yarn to this project. It is Lincraft's own brand. Each "eyelash" is a twisted loop. I used size 3.25mm needles instead of the recommended size (6mm) to tighten the knit fabric and prevent stuffing leakage.

I just love the pictures you posted! They are so cute, great job! I hope to one day take on a knitting project like this :)

Thank you. These bears are fun to make. They are not difficult if you can knit stocking stitch, increase and decrease.
