This is a digital file
Please note: This listing is for the digital KNITTING PATTERN to make the pictured toy and NOT FOR A FINISHED ITEM
This pattern is written in English.
This listing is for an extensive PDF file which contains full instructions for knitting and finishing off a little knitted bear boy with a Fair Isle sweater and shorts. The pattern is supplied as an instantly downloadable digital PDF file, so you will need a PDF reader such as Adobe Reader to open, print and save the file. Once paid for it will available to download and is also always accessible from your Etsy purchase history. A receipt will be emailed to your Etsy contact email (please ensure that this is up to date).
The file is 19 pages long and contains over 60 detailed step-by-step photographs along with full pattern instructions and tips for stuffing, seaming and finishing neatly. Also included are extra designs so you can make a Panda, a Polar bear and a black bear. There's also an extra sweater design that is worked flat in simple stripes for those who don't like knitting in the round and/or stranded knitting.
The pattern is for knitting flat on two needles and all pieces are seamed afterwards. Please note that this project is not a quick or simple knit. It takes me around 14 hours to make and finish each of the animals that I make and just under half of that time is spent on the finishing off. There are lots of separate pieces which require seaming and sewing and if you are looking for something fast and easy you would probably be better off finding a different pattern. That said this PDF file will give you all of the information and techniques that you need to knit the little bear pictured.
I've included instructions for two different sweater options - the first has a Fair Isle pattern but for those who don't like Fair Isle/stranded knitting there is a simpler version in Breton stripes.
