A fun knitting pattern to create felted stuffed animals of a polar bear and cub. Great for animal lovers or to use as holiday decorations. The cub is a great size for a Christmas tree ornament. Polly is about 8 inches long, 5 ½ inches tall, and 4 inches wide; the bear cub is about 4 ½ inches long, 3 inches tall, and 2 inches wide.
This pattern uses short rows, increases (M1 or kfb), decreases (SSK, K2tog), and knitting in the round on DPNs. It is for an intermediate level knitter. The pattern includes step-by-step photos. One skein of Bare Merino Style DK yarn will make one large bear and a couple of cubs. A few yards of wool of the Andes sport yarn in black is used to sew on the eyes and nose, or they can also be added using needle felting.
