Brambles is a chubby little bear to knit up and love.

This pattern is knit in the round in separate pieces and seamed together at the end.

While matching gauge isn’t terribly important, I suggest using a needle at least 2 sizes smaller than recommended for your yarn choice to give you a firmer fabric that will not allow the stuffing to escape.

Additional materials needed include 100% wool roving for stuffing. Wool stuffing has a very pleasant weight and warmth to it that cannot be replicated with polyester toy stuffing. Although you could substitute with the toy stuffing, the wool stuffing helps to make for a sturdier and cuddlier bear.

Optional: heart shaped button (I used a handmade button from link text). Toy safety eyes / glass bear eyes.
