A white teddy bear is still a teddy bear?but knitted Peabey the Polar Bear is the real thing! From his long snout and neck to his adorably pigeon-toed paws and round rump, Peabey looks like he just lumbered down from the Arctic Circle. Worked from the tail forward in simple stockinette on double-pointed needles, Peabey requires no seaming and minimal finishing, just a few stitches of embroidery for his cute face and feet.
