So his name's not Teddy.
Berroco is one of America's leading fashion yarn companies; most knitters know that their website is full of free patterns. One of the free patterns Berroco offers is for this sweet, cuddly Harry Bear. He's 12" tall and made from a single ball of their velvety chenille yarn, Chinchilla. I want to make one just so that I can hug it!
There's an intentional Harry Potter reference on Berroco's part, but the scarf is purely optional on yours. Check out the Kathryn Ivy blog to see Grace Schnebly's version of Harry Bear, done in soft beige, with some notes on the project. In short, she says that the bear wouldn't be too hard for beginners, but that Chinchilla is not the easiest yarn to work with, something that's true of any chenille yarn.
