Finished size: 30cm height x 25cm width x 28cm depth

What's in the kit?
200g of super chunky yarn
A small amount of black super chunky yarn for embroidering
2 x 24mm black safety eyes and washers
120g polyester toy stuffing
9mm Straight Knitting Needles (optional)

This kit not suitable for children under 3 years. If you would like to knit this kit and give it to a child we suggest you embroider the eye on using dk yarn.

You will need some scrap yarn markers, these are used to mark where the baby bear features go, you can use some of the yarn from the kit, but we'd recommend some colourful scrap from your stash.

We hope you understand.

Shipped quickly, even with the holidays coming up! Nice quality wool inside -- I got the brown bear -- and the color is quite lovely. The pattern has been clear and easy and I'm about halfway through the process after about four or hive hours of knitting. This is one pattern I'd love to see available for sale online on its own, but I'm very happy with the kit.
