Oakley is an adorable little bear that measures approximately 9 inches tall when finished. This pattern clearly explains all of the steps needed to knit him, and how to create his sweet little paw pads and muzzle accents. The pattern also includes instructions to make Oakley a scarf.

Skill Level: Advanced Beginner

Skills Used: Basic knit stitches, cast on, bind off, increases (Kfb), decreases (K2tog and ssk), knitting in the round using either Magic Loop or double pointed needles, picking up stitches, and Kitchener stitch.

Amount of Time To Complete Project: About 7 hours depending on skill level

Pattern Format: Adobe PDF file

Yarn: Approximately 80 yards of worsted weight yarn (Oakley) and approximately 18 yards of fingering weight yarn (scarf).

Gauge: The great thing about toy making is that gauge is not crucial. If you are a tight knitter, your finished project may measure a little smaller than the sample in this pattern. If you knit more loosely, you will end up with a slightly larger finished project. Just be sure to use a needle size that is 2-3 times smaller than the recommendation on your yarn.

Needles: A 36” or longer circular needle 2-3 sizes smaller than your yarn recommendation or a set of double pointed needles.

Notions: safety eyes (optional), safety nose (optional), tapestry needle, scissors, stitch markers, poly fiberfill, embroidery floss, felt, and fabric glue.
