I am already on the first leg. It seems to be knit in one piece so far. YOu start with the body, do the arm holes, then go back to the cast on row and do the buttt, then legs. I am going to guess that the arms and head will be stitches picked up. The ears maybe separate. If you want to see a whold bunch of these bears you can go to www.susandennis.com
and look at her "knitting journal". Also, take a peek at her afghans. She is quite the knitter (socks too).
I have been sitting on the floor and my buttt is sore.
