I'm a bear, hear me roar.

This is the same pattern that I used for the bunny, with modifications to the ears and dropping out some of the other pieces.

NOTE: Looking at the picture between the rabbit and the bear, I noticed my pattern I think doubled the body length. If you want him shorter like the rabbit, maybe do 6 rounds instead of 11 after the arm holes. I am not sure which one I like better... long or short!

BODY

MR – 9
2sc in each – 18
Sc in first, 2sc in next – 27 (x2)
Sc around – 41 (x15)
Sc 28, ch 5, sc 8 – 41
Sc 8, ch 5, sc 28 – 41 (these make the arm holes)
Sc around – 41 (x11)
Leave open and with a long tail of yarn, you will sew the legs on later.

LEGS (make 2)

MR – 8
2sc in each – 16
Sc in 3, 2sc in next, rep around – 20
In back loops, sc around – 20
Back to normal stitch, sc around -20 (x3)
2sc in 2, sc in 2, 2sc in next, [sc in 4, 2sc in next (x3)] – 26
Sc around – 26
Sew on to body.
I put pellets in the bottoms to help it stand up.

ARMS (make 2)

MR – 6
2sc in each – 12
Sc around – 12 (x3)
2sc in 2, sc in 9 – 14
Sc around – 14
Leaving a tail on each, sew onto body.

EARS

MR – 6
2sc in each – 12
2sc in 1, sc in 2, rep around – 16
Sc around – 16 (x3)
2sctog, sc in 2, rep around – 12
Tie off, leaving a long tail to sew on. Stuff it lightly once you sew it on.

Give him a nose (I just used a needle to stitch on a nose, doing each stitch 3x to give it a more exaggerated look/make it stand out) and mouth and voila. :)
