My Polar Bear is dressed in his Santa outfit, which can be removed so you can play ”dress up”. The bear is 25 cm tall. All pieces are knitted flat (back and forth) on a pair of straight single-pointed knitting needles. The bear pattern incorporates short row shaping. For the jacket you need to pick up and knit stitches along an edge. The jacket hood uses kitchener stitch grafting. You will also need to cast on and off, knit, purl, work increases and decreases, knit stripes, and sew seams.
