  1. wow that is freakin adorable im so gunna take it to my grandma for her to try for my sissy lol

  2. made this bear – turned out very pint sized. Used recommended needles and doubled the yarn. Would like to make a larger version – how do i adapt the pattern. Even though it was pint sized it was adorable and is being thoroughly enjoyed.

  3. what is the weight of the yarn?

    how many stitches per inch?

    if I use a chunkier yarn with size 10 needles how do I need to adapt the pattern?

  4. this is ADORABLE i’m gonna go try knit it now

  5. this would be better if there were pictures
