EASY BEAR CLOTHES

 

Yarn: Worsted weight

Needles: Size 8

Note: You may use larger needles for larger clothes and a looser knit; or smaller ones and sport-weight yarn for smaller clothes. You can experiment with color and with stitches, and use up leftover yarn. For ideas, check the web for preemie patterns for booties and caps. The pieces can be quickly finished, and there are all sizes of bears that would appreciate new clothes before they go out into the world to be loved.
