Polar Bear is an easy to make Christmas decoration. I have tried to make him as realistic as possible, and the key is to find the right wool. White or slightly off-white, with a bit of fluffiness or bobbliness (is that even a word?) will really help.

The finished bear is approximately 7cm long, and he is a fairly simple make. You will need to use the short row technique, and icord. I would also recommend him if you like working small.

Some of my photos are on a carefully arranged polar towel, and I headed out to the woods with my bear for the other photos. A bit tricky as it was both dark and windy, but I may add a few more when he finally goes up on the Christmas tree in a few weeks time.

If you do make a polar bear I would love it if you link up your finished project, and welcome any feedback.
