One more bear

Another bear has been completed. This one for dd#3-she loves it. She really, really, REALLY wanted one and kept asking about it every day. Checking on the knitting progress each day from the previous evening. Above is the bear before arms and seaming. It is knit from the front legs to the back legs all in one piece.

Next you pick up stitches for the arms - this also creates the head portion.

Then the bear is seamed and stuffed. In this case, a skirt and sleeve ruffles were added to make it look more "girlie". Easy, peasy and well loved already :o).
