A Little Bitty Girl Bear! (easy knit)

Hey there! 
I hope you are having a great week! 

Just thought I would share with you my little bitty
girl bear that I made. I made a little boy version
previously. You can see that here.

I took some along-the-way pictures so you can see how 
I figured it out. It is just a garter stitch with increases, 
decreases, cast on and cast off maneuvers.

I can't really read a knitting or a crochet pattern. 
So it has to be a pretty simple concept for me to get thru it.

As you can see, it is just one piece. 
I knit one side and then when I get to the top of the head, 
I just start the whole thing in reverse.

I'm so happy she turned out. My daughter
wants to give her to one of her friends for 
a shower gift.

Isn't she cute? 
I stood her up next to a coffee cup so you can
see how tall she is.

I mean, look at that face!

I'll be joining 
Cindy for Amaze me Monday
Marty for Inspire Me Tuesday
Brenda for Tweak it Tuesday

I am visiting from ROI. What a darling bear! My Grandmother taught me to crochet when I was very young but never did get to learn to knit before she passed when I was 10. That is such a lovely skill. Beautiful bear!

Stephanie said...

Well, if she isn't the cutest little bear ever! And the details you added make her even sweeter :) When I see things like this it makes me wish I knew how to crochet or knit.... maybe someday :)

Hugs to you and thanks for sharing at Roses of Inspiration.
