Hi Crafty friends, I finished another bear just recently. Meet my latest knitted bear project… named Fudge. He is so soft and fluffy and oh so cuddly. If you missed my last bear project, you can view it here.
To knit up this project I used the same bear pattern designed by Jean Greenhowe from her pattern booklet Jemima Jane and Friends, it was also the same pattern booklet used for my previous bear projects. This time round I chose an All-Sorts (Polyester) yarn I spotted on sale at a Lincraft store a few months ago. It has knitted up quite well and incredibly super soft, but I also did intentionally stuff him lightly as well and just like soft chocolate fudge, he is a nice big softie!
The bow tie pictured above has sentimental value, it belonged to my brother in-law. I also made Fudge another bow pictured below, so he has the opportunity of a change of bow ties when needed!
The finished height measurement of Fudge is 16 inches (40.6 cm) and he is the biggest knitted bear I have knitted so far:
Rosey Bear – 15.7 inches (40 cm)
Rainbow Bear – 10 inches (25.4 cm)
Pippa measures approx 9 inches (22.8cm)
Violet Bear – 8 3/4 inches (22.2 cm)
Knitted Bears Rock! – 8 inches (20.3 cm)
Party Girl Bear – 7 3/4 inches (19.6 cm)
Tutti Frutti Bear – 7 inches (16cm)
I was recently asked, do I have a stash of made bears by now? The answer to this is no, they are either given as gifts, bought and given as gifts by friends and family. I have another bear nearly completed and one other in the pipeline, well it’s about a third done at this stage.
