Getting Started
We start by making the bear’s head/body. The head and body are worked as one continuous piece. We will then make the ears, muzzle, legs, and arms!

 Note about yarn…
I used an old discontinued yarn for this pattern (Lion Brand “Lion Suede”.) However, there are many similar yarns you can use for this pattern. Any bulky 5 will work.

Recommended Yarns:
Bernat Velvet Yarn
Lion Brand’s “
A Star is Born: Warm & Fuzzy” Yarn
