Weather is certainly changing here in the UK, there is a definate autumnal feel in the air, although August wasn’t that much warmer! Just finished a bear with the cold weather in mind, so made sure he is well wrapped up to brave the elements.
He is a sweet little bear measuring 11″. Both bear and clothes are knitted in DK on 4mm needles.
Instead of knitting the jumper seperately I knitted the upper body and sleeves in a different yarn to create the jumper. Thought this would make his clothes less bulky when wearing the duffle coat.
The yellow jumper and orange baggy overalls are good colours for Autumn yet still bright for the nursery.
The duffle coat is a good fit, I used four toggles to give a double breasted look.
Joey looks nice and snug for the cold times ahead!!
