I’ve been searching patterns like crazy and can’t find the kind of “bear” I’m looking for. Basically what I’d like to do is have a teddy bear head, and the rest of the bear look like a small blanket. My son has a Winnie the Pooh bear like this that I ordered from Avon (however, it’s not knitted). I would like to knit some bears for my local hospital (my son had to go to the ER today to get stitches because he fell and had a big gash in his head, and, they gave him a teddy bear, but, it took a little while to find one, I got the impression they were running low) and donate them for the kids who go to the ER. I want a pattern that is REALLY simple and would only take about a day or two to knit so I can make a lot of them.
I still don’t have much experience knitting anything other than scarves, blankets, cell cases, and, the one sweater I’m working on for hubby and one tank I made for my daughter so I was wondering what the easiest way to make a bear head would be. Would it turn out ok if I just knit something like a swatch in the round and pulled waste yarn through the neck and ear areas to give them shape?
Thanks for any input!
