**I had a go at another polar bear knitting pattern, which sort of looks like a polar bear, if this link works it should be here enjoy, and if anyone has a go please show me any pictures you have.**
After having a bit of knitters-block, I sort of over came it by knitting tiny things, as they are really quick to make 🙂
So here’s the pattern to make it…
What you need:
Some white double knitting wool
Number 9 knitting needles (3.5mm)
2 x small black beads
K – Knit
P – Purl
Kfb – Knit into the front and back of the stitch, so we have increased by one
K2tog – Knit two together, so we have decreased by one
Cast on 5 Stitches
Row 1 – Kfb x 5 (10 sts)
Row 2 – p
Row 3 – ( K1, Kfb) x 5 (15 sts)
Row 4 – P
Row 5 – (K1, K2tog) x 5 (10sts)
Row 6 – P
Row 7 – K
Row 8 – P
Row 9 – K2tog x 5 (5 sts)
Cut of a long tail of wool, and pull through the remaining stitches.
Then sew up half of the back seam and stuff, you will want to sew it the right way around, so use a mattress stitch 🙂
After you have stuffed it sew up the rest of the seam.
If it has lost its shape, pinch the top of the body, this is the bit that you pulled the stitches through, so you get a sort of rain drop shape.
Sew in the two eyes a couple of rows beneath the top, and then stitch on a little nose in black thread.
To make the ears, I cut a long length of wool, and then stitched over the same spot a few time, do this on both side of the top.
And ta-da you have a tiny polar bear 🙂
Hope you enjoy, and feel free to ask me any questions if you get stuck 🙂
