View Full Version : Knitty's Bubby Bear

Myjoyoverflows was making this little bear a couple of days ago and I decided to make one. I did it just like it says (oh, I didn't graft the ends of the arms, just ran the yarn through and pulled), but theirs seemed to have a little more shaping in the feet. :shrug: Maybe I stuffed him too much. I did my face different, and don't know how I feel about it. When I made the eyes they were smaller, but sewing them on made them a tad bigger and he is big eyed. I may try adding a light part to the eye and see if that helps. The yarn is just some scrap I had in my stash, worsted weight with a few little hairys. Thought it might be bearish.;)
and here is another
Here is a link to the pattern (http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEfall05/PATTbubby.html).

I love this pattern. I made one for a friend's little girl and she loves it!
With the feet, I found it took a bit of pinching and tweaking to get them to look footish. I'll see if I can find a decent pick of it.

Thanks everyone. I decided to redo the eyes. I took them off and replaced with smaller embroidered eyes. He's different.... better would be a matter of taste. :)
I started another creature from the same pattern with some variations. I'm using grey Lopi wool and size 5 needles and changed the feet so they would be more prominent. I haven't decided if it is a bear or not. May be a cat. :?? I'm thinking an i-cord tail might work well. I'll probably post a picture when he's done, and I only have one leg and two arms and the optional tail to go. :woot:

Babies love this bear! They are just the right size for their hands to hold and their mouths to chew on.
