All the while I was making this adorable bear I kept saying to myself, “What a good bear.” It had to become the name of the pattern, Good Bear. I hope you think it is a good bear, too.

How to make your printed Good Bear pattern book:

  1. Print out all of the pages single-sided.
  2. Fold each page on the center dotted line with the blank side of the page to the inside and the printed side to the outside.
  3. Put the pages in order with the folded edge to the right.
  4. Staple the pages together along the left side with three staples, one on each end and one in the center.

Finished Measurement
The Bear is 8-inches tall from the toe to the top of the head.

Needles
Bear: US size 4/3.5mm double-pointed needles
Pants: US size 3/3.25mm double-pointed needles for the waistband; US size 5/3.75mm double-pointed needles for the pants
Colorwork Pullover, Jacket, and Beanie: US size 5/3.75mm double-pointed needles
For the Jacket only I also used a US size 5/3.75mm, 24-inch circular needle to work back and forth.

For all of the suggested needle sizes always check your gauge and use the sizes to obtain the correct gauge.

Gauge
US size 4/3.5mm - 6.5 stitches per inch in stockinette stitch
US size 5/3.75mm - 6 stitches per inch in stockinette stitch
For the waistband of the Pants, use needles that are two sizes smaller than the size used for the body of the pants.
