Little Oaks Bear Knitting Project – New for 2013 are Pocket Bears

 

MATERIALS
Double knitting wool and size 3.5mm (old fashioned 9) needles. If you are using different wool, the wool packaging should indicate what size needles to use.

PATTERN
Knit in garter stitch.

HEAD, BODY AND LEGS – MAKE ONE
Beginning at the top of the head, cast on 40 stitches
Knit 32 rows for the head
Change to shirt colour
Knit a further 26 rows for the shirt
Change back to body colour (if you only want a top – like Winnie the pooh look) or change to pants colour and knit 8 rows (total of 66 rows from the top)
The next row is the start of the legs: knit 20 stitches, then turn and knit 20 stitches back
Knit another 43 rows (each leg will be 44 rows)
NOTE: you can change from pants colour back to body colour at any stage on the legs, depending on how long you want the pants to be.

NOTE: if you want shoes, do the last 4 or 6 rows in shoe colour.

Cast off
Knit the other leg (20 stitches and 44 rows)
Cast off.

ARMS- MAKE 2
Cast on 20 stitches in body colour and knit 24 rows
Change to shirt colour and knit 12 rows (each arm will be 36 rows)
Cast off.

MAKE UP
Fold the body, head and legs in half lengthwise, inside out and sew up the centre back. Then sew up the feet and inner legs. Turn it the right way round. Stuff from the head. Sew the head closed neatly. Sew across the corner of the head to make ears. Sew around the neck in a large tacking stitch and draw it in to make a neck. Sew the arms inside out. Turn them the right way round and stuff. Attach them to the body.

FACE
Give it a character of its own.

SCARF
Cast on 5 stitches and knit until long enough.

POCKET BEARS – NEW FOR 2013
Halve all of the measurements – stitches and rows. When halving to an odd number – round up to an even number so that all of your colour changes are on the same side of the bear.
