View Full Version : Anyone know of a decent bear pattern?

I've wanted to knit a bear, but all the patterns seem to be "teddy bear" style, rather than looking like an actual bear. I did find one bear pattern that was supposed to look more like a real bear, but I didn't much care for the pattern. Do know where I can get a (free) bear pattern?

I'm not sure I'm entirely understanding... A real bear? So a pattern like these aren't good?

These aren't free, but maybe more what you're looking for?

how about leave off the trunk and ears, use a bear-color:
