Here's the last of my three patterns for Innocent Smoothies Big Knit 2011 - the other two patterns are Innocent Cupcake and Innocent Apple.
Innocent Bear is another fast little knit that needs very little yarn and is straightforward to make.
About 5g brown double knitting yarn (or white for a polar bear!)
Very small amount of black double knitting yarn to embroider the bear's face
Using brown yarn cast on 28 sts.
Knit 18 rows in garter stitch.
Decrease for the top:
Rows 19 and 20: K2tog across the whole row to the end.
Cut yarn, leaving an 8 inch tail, thread through live stitchess and use to sew up the side seam.
Ears (make 2)
Using brown yarn cast on 6 stitches.
Knit 4 rows in garter stitch.
Row 5: K2tog, k2, k2tog.
Row 6: Knit
Sew the ears to the top of the hat and embroider the facial features as shown in the photo.
