Here's Paz - a basic knitted bear. I've finished knitting up some basic bears - simple to knit and look fab in variegated yarn, or in soft cuddly yarn - you can choose what type of yarn - I've used La Paz yarn 1 x 100g ball on 3mm needles to make this 17 inch bear. Of course I recommend embroidering a nose and eyes if it's for a small child under 3 years.
