Little Bear is small enough to tuck into your pocket or school bag. He is a little friend who’s always ready to give comfort and a cuddle.

Little Bear is a safe and washable first teddy for baby. He’s just the right size for tiny hands to hold. (You could make two from one ball of yarn so there is always a clean one to cuddle!)

If you would rather make little Bear in Double knit/ Light Worsted yarn, then this pattern will still work just as well.

Knitting Tip-
Fancy yarn is fun to knit with but do “bear” in mind that due to its fluffy texture counting stitches is difficult. Count your stitches as you knit each row, this fancy yarn is very hard to rip back!
