Do you love pulling out your hand knit ornaments each year to celebrate the season? We do! In fact we love it so much that we brought out not one, but two ornament kits this year! This listing is for our peaceful polar bear in an adorable sweater topped off by a darling scarf. The kit makes 2 bears, one with a red striped sweater with a green scarf, and his twinny in a green stripey sweater and a red scarf. These friends are perfect for your tree or mantel, or for gifting to your friends and family. And the best part is they are such a quick project we bet you could start a bear on Christmas Eve and have it hanging on your tree by Christmas morning!
These charming little polar bear friends are perfect to give as gifts, or to use for decorating your house. Think of how cute it would be if each of your guests had a bear holding their name on their plate at your Christmas dinner table! Or, start a tradition like we do and gift your family a sweet little ornament every year for their trees. Our peaceful polar bear kit comes packaged in a darling cupcake box complete with a handle on top, and would make a delightful gift for your knitting friend, too. Plus this is a quick and fun knit and you will find yourself making a whole house full of little knitted bear friends! You can also use the pattern to make multiple sizes of bear depending on what weight yarn you use, as illustrated in the last photo. We know, you didn't think this kit could get any better, but it totally did once you found out you could knit all kinds of sizes of bear. That "Buy Now" button is right there up to your right...
This kit is packed with pure awesomeness and includes the materials you need to knit 2 small polar bears in the round:
Intermediate Knitting Pattern with a download code for the pdf version of the pattern
100% Wool Fingering Weight Yarn in 3 colors
Two sets of 6mm safety eyes
Two 8mm triangle bear noses
All you will need to complete your Christmas friends is a US Size 1 (2.25 mm) circular needle, a tapestry needle, 14 removable stitch markers, and scissors! If you are a tighter knitter you might be more comfortable using US Size 2 (2.75mm) needles instead. Please note we do offer that you can add a set of stitch markers in a small tin to your kit for only $6. These markers are perfect for our small fingering kits! It includes 24 removable markers and 4 closed, snag-free shaped markers for the beginning of the round all in a cute little tin. You can see the tin of markers listing here: https://www.etsy.com/listing/611982215/wicked-chickens-yarn-stitch-marker-set?ref=shop_home_active_1
Finished polar bears are approximately 6" tall.
The kit will come complete with a printed version of the pattern, but there will also be a download code on your pattern for the pdf version of the pattern. The download is through Ravelry.com, but you do not need a Ravelry account to download the pattern. The pattern is designed by author and designer Rebecca Danger, known for her whimsical monster and creature knitting patterns.
*****Please note, you will not receive the finished items shown in this listing, only the materials to create them yourself (or give to your crafty friends).*****
