A Pattern Idea (or two)


For those who are still looking for patterns, here is a really cute and unique pattern from Debbie Bliss. Found in her Noro Collection 1 book is a bear made with 9 skeins of Noro Kureyon. How cute is this bear (scroll down the page to see photo and yarn requirements)?

Also, let's thank Patti for pointing out another cute pattern, Bobbi Bear by Blue Sky Alpacas. This one calls for their own bulky yarn and is almost two feet tall! The pattern and yarns are available through any of the retailers listed on Blue Sky Alpacas's website.

Here's a photo of two Bobbi Bears, from Blue Sky's website:

And a kit for Bobbi can be ordered from Jimmy Beans Wool.



Fiber Trends also has a few felted bear patterns. There are the baby bears (scroll down the page to view) and the marigold bears. Very adorable!

There are also bear patterns in:
Last Minute Knitted Gifts
Simple Knits for Cherished Babies
Debbie Bliss Baby Knits Book
Interweave Knits Winter 1999/2000

And Bobbi Bear can be knit up with other, thinner yarns (for much less money, too) just by converting the few measurements in the pattern by using the row gauge.

Can you tell I'm SO in on the bear along? And congratulations on your pregnancies! My son is 3 1/2 months old and I sort of miss being pregnant already. :)
