Almost every child owns a stuffed bear. Why not be that special person to give a child their first bear. I found this pattern years ago on-line and have made many a bear since. It is a fast, very easy pattern that makes a great baby shower or NB gift. You get to use up some of that left over yarn (of any weight – sport or worsted works great) you have lying around. Sport yarn just makes a smaller bear. Dress it up by adding a scarf and you are ready to go.
