Popcorn Bears
Hello there...

I just recently acquired some patterns for Popcorn bears...now...because these come as kits...I am not sure what yarn and how much...

I am guessing at an eyelash yarn....it does say it is to be knitting on 3.25mm. The ones I have noticed seem to be about 20 cm - 30 cm tall...so maybe 2 - 3 50 gr balls?

Has anyone worked one of these kits? Any ideas?

What is a popcorn bear? Is it from a tv show or set of books? They are so cute I was just wondering. I looked online and all I can find is a ton of figurines and cross stitch pattern books.

It would seem like they are a UK invention...probably a little like Charished bears...or whatever they are called...

But I happened across ALOT of patterns recently...and there were 3 popcorn bear patterns amongst them...unfortunatly they were all kits...and no mention of what should be used....
