Assembly of a Bear

The the bear for my niece is complete. My daughter has named him Snuggle Bear, which is a great name for a knitted bear. He is floppy, soft, imperfect, and ideal for snuggling. Here are some photos of Snuggle Bear’s assembly:  he took two nights to assemble.

Yarn:  Naturally Caron.com Country Merino Wool Blend in Deep Taupe (0015) lot 1074500.  This yarn is 75% Microdenier acrylic and 25% Merino Wool.

  • Pros:  beautiful, soft, inexpensive
  • Cons:  easily splits and frays

Pattern:  The pattern followed is the same for the first bear.  It is based on a pattern found in Simply Baby by Debbie Bliss.
