Shorty the Short-row Bear with Laura Barker
Shorty is a colorful 4″ teddy bear which uses German short rows to create a big round tummy, a bottom so the bear can sit, no-sew ears, pointed toes, curved arms, and contrasting colored pads on the hands and feet. The body is worked sideways then stitches are picked up to add the appendages. Shorty is the Baby from my Three Shorty Bears pattern, and can be substantially completed in class, using approximately 4g of each of 5 colors of worsted yarn found in a mini pack or selected individually. The class includes full Three Shorty Bears pattern as a free download with instructions for the Mama & Papa bears, using the remainder of the mini pack, about 100g total.

__5g each of 5 colors OR 25g of a single color of worsted-weight yarn
