I am back with a question that I am sure many knitters have asked before and hoped that the answer was easy. Actually, I am more looking for help on how to do it.
I would like to transpose a pattern for a “grumpy old bear,” in Susan B. Anderson’s book, Itty Bitty Nursery.
It is mostly a bunch of squares, but the issue is that I want the bear to be about the size of a 3 month old baby ad currently ( in the pattern) it is only 8 inches tall!!, so I need the bear to be 3 times the size at 24 inches tall. Now, if you have a look at the pattern, the bear is sitting down, do you think the 8 inches mean, hwile the bear is seated or from foot to head?
So, I will get 3 times the yarn to start. Will wait for some help here. However, here is another question, can I stuff my bear with some old clothes (cut them into strips or some small pieces) rather than using polyfiber?
Now, just to add an extra foot note, I want the bear to be this tall because…here is comes…those booties i felted on my other thread, well, i also ended up felting an rather expensive merino wool sweater and the same booties got put into the wash and now are mini booties which i think will do well with the sweater on a bear!
