Thanks to Ravelry, I saw that someone had knit this bear using only one skein of Lamb's Pride Worsted. And lucky for me, I happen to have one skein in my yarn stash. I love one skein projects! DH thought I deliberately chose purple for the bear and actually preferred the browns and natural colored ones on the pattern picture. I was so glad to use something from the stash so I didn't really care. It's still cute!
It's cleverly constructed and the instructions are clear. The arms can be a bit tricky to knit because the bear is stuffed already as you try to pick up the arm stitches and knit them. Other than that, it was fun to knit Baby Bobbi.
This baby bear is big. I can't even imagine knitting the full size version. The full sized Bobbi Bear is 20 inches tall. Seriously, my dogs are not that small and this bear is almost as big they are. This Baby Bobbi Bear turned out to be 14 inches tall.
It will be a while before the baby can play with this bear. I bet that the baby will be smaller than the bear when she is born. She is sure taking her sweet time in making her debut! If the baby does not come on her own this week, I am scheduled for an induction at the hospital next week.
