    Sweater bearies

    Materials:

    - Yarn scraps in various colors of your choice ( body color, muzzle color, sweater color, two

    different sweater stripe colors).

    - Black beads for the eyes.

    - Embroidery floss for the nose.

    - A hook appropriate to the weight of the yarn. I personally used fingering weight yarn and a 2.0

    mm hook, which resulted in a 3 inch bear.

    - Yarn needle.

    - Polyfill.

    Note: When switching colors, the last loop you pull through the stitch before the switch already

    has to be in the new color.

    TorsoThe torso is worked in the round in rows, not a spiral. This is to make sure the color changes

    line up neatly.

    R1: Using the body color of your choice, make 6 sc into a ring, sl st to close.

    R2: ch 1, sc inc in next st, around, sl st to close (12)

    R3: ch 1, sc inc in next st, sc in next st, around, sl st to close (18)

    R4: ch 1, sc around, sl st to close (18) Change to the sweater color.

    Embroider the nose, then sew the muzzle to the head. After that, sew the head to the torso.Make sure to orient the seam of the torso color changes towards the side, so that it will be

    hidden by the bear's left arm.

    Sew on black beads for eyes, set wide and low.

    Don't stuff the ears, but fold them flat. Sew them to the head at a curve, so they are nicely

    cupped.
