Mister Bear

Posted by 2ton Inspired on February 5, 2008

How sweet is he? For now I’m calling him Mister Bear since he’s going to be a gift for a friend. He actually turned out a bit smaller then I thought he would but I love the proportions. I decided to embroider on the facial features and had a bit of trouble with making everything even. I’m not the best at embroidery but I think overall it looks OK.

I’m loving this book. Earlier I was worried about reading the pattern since it uses symbols but it was easy as pie. I actually think I prefer the symbols then written instructions. I like that it tells you exactly when to do the increase or decrease (some patterns just say decrease evenly). I can’t decide what to make next! I suppose I should try to finish up some of my knits before starting another ami though.

Pattern: Big Bear from Kyuuto! Japanese Crafts! Amigurumi

Yarn: Sugar’n Cream. Used about two of the 95yd balls for the main color. A little Caron Simply Soft for the accent.
